Tuesday Morning Sketch #169

YIKES! I can't believe its been a whole week since I've posted anything! I have been very busy crafting, I just can't share most of it... yet! ;)
     But today, I do have something fun to share... a new sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches!
I love Melissa's sketch this week, and I also love this week's fantastic sponsor - Stamp Fairy! I have been a fan of Stamp Fairy for a long time... the teddies are some of my favorites! Gerda was kind enough to offer the design team an image to work with for the sketch, so I chose Linda Fairy #1. Isn't she sweet??  And you know me, I kept my sample very clean...
I colored Linda Fairy with my Copics, and paper pieced her dress and bow. Her wand and wings are fancied up with some ultra fine glitter. I honestly hate using loose glitter - the stuff gets everywhere no matter what I do! BUT, I do love the look of this clear glitter from Recollections. I like that I can glue it right over the areas I colored with Copics so the color shows through, and the paper doesn't warp like it does when I use Stickles. I also added some sparkle to the word "sparkles" in the sentiment using my clear Copic Spica pen. Can't really see it in the photo, but it looks pretty neat in real life!
Supplies: AmyR Magical Wishes Sentiment (All That Scraps); Palette Noir Ink; Hammermill White CS;
Neenah Desert Storm CS; Bazzill Maltball CS; Echo Park This and That Graceful 6x6 Paper Pad;
CC Cutters Banner Tags Die; Fiskars Apron Lace Border Punch; Spellbinders Circle/Scalloped Circle Dies;
Blossom; Button; Twine; Recollections Extra Fine Glitter ("snow"); Spica Clear Pen; Copics

I'm the same with loose glitter, but I LOVE how it looks!
Aren't crafty secrets the best? And the hardest to keep? :)

She is perfectly charming! I love her glitz - I know what you mean about glitter. But Scor-Pal has a glitter clean up cloth that is very helpful! And another plus about loose glitter, you end up sparkly, too. Everyone needs to sparkle every now and then. Great card Laura.
