Sharing the Magic!

Hi, everyone!
Thursday's are Oldie But Goodie Days at Catch the Bug Blog
I love OBG day because I can break out some of my favorite Bugaboo Stamps to play with, and have an excuse to show them on my blog! lol! (As if I need an excuse, right?!)

Today I am using the Fairy Christmas from Bugaboo Stamps.  I think this image is simply beautiful. I am not very skilled at coloring in "people" images....cutesie stuff, okay, but not people that are supposed to look like "people", I challenged myself to work with this image for todays 'oldie but goodie' theme. She took me a long time to color in PSE, but I am happy with the result (she looks much better digitally, I swear! lol! Printing always takes away detail from digital coloring, at least for me.)

I wanted to use some non-traditional colors, so I went with the pinks and purples for the fairy. I brought the green into the card by matching up a Graphic 45 dp scrap to her wing colors. I used my Simon Says Stamp A2 Curved Edge die for the image and purple layer. I pulled out my Cheery Lynn Holly Flourish die for the leafy embellish.  The sentiment is a CTMH stamp that I digitized, printed and cut out with a Spellbinders Classic Squares, Small die. I used a Stampin Up corner punch on it, and then popped it up with some foam dots. For a bit of bling (which is hard to see in the photo), I added some Stickles, Crystal glitter glue here and there on the image.

That's it! She's ready to be mailed for the holiday season, I think!
Thanks for stopping by!
