Jack Fairy

Hi everyone! Well I'm exhilarated, exhausted, and still on cloud nine from yesterday! What a crazy day! It was my first blog hop and party and things were moving fast in the PMS forum, but I had fun! I was even more excited when Katie put this image up on the Paper Makeup Store as a digi image for sale just for yesterday (sorry, you are going to have to wait for the April release date to get this again). She actually had two digi images yesterday. This one is the first boy fairy called Jack Fairy. She also had a girl called Birthday Lauren. I'll have a card featuring that image soon.

This card encompasses two challenges. The first is Challenge #2 from yesterday's party which was to use the colors white, green and orange (St. Patty's Day colors). The second challenge is the sketch from Taylored Expressions. She has some awesome sketches and I like to play whenever I can. Jack is colored with copic markers. His top was supposed to be more orangey, but looks more like a maize color. I tried to match up the colors in the orange Offbeat dp from Basic Grey. The dark green dp is also Basic Grey's Wassail. I searched for the perfect sentiment and came up with these two which I think work nicely. They are stamps from JustRite. They had a sale on them a while back for a $1. There are eight little stamps in a container and are pre-inked! I bought them all, I think! You just never know when they'll come in handy (like now), and were so worth it! I think little boys are always exploring and discovering new things and new ways to do things (like building a tower of rocks!). I added some Twinkling H2O's called Icicles to his wings, and parts of the rocks, his clothing and hair. That's it! Thanks for stopping by and for all the nice comments you've left for me this weekend! I do appreciate them and love to hear from you! Have a great week!
