INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 33 - Pile it on ! (Layers)

Happy Friday Friends!
Another week has gone by, and Christina and I are happy to welcome you to a brand new Inentory Challenge, which has for theme Pile it on! I love layers, sooo this was a delight for me. Today is my DIL' s birthday (Have a wonderful day Cindy!) and it is her card I present you. Special, quite special, and very out of my comfort zone. Sensuality, feminity and as my son says: Scrumptious! Cindy loves fairies. I created for her a Moonlight paradise, because she likes blue.

Bon vendredi!
Une autre semaine qui s'est envolée, et le printemps qui tarde. Christina et moi sommes heureuses de vous accueillir à un nouveau défi, et notre thème est "empilons"! c'est un plaisir pour moi, j'adore empiler.J'ai créé cette carte spécialement pour Cindy, la petite amie de mon fils. C'est son anniversaire aujourd'hui, alors Bonne Fête Cindy.

I used Moonlight Fairy from the beautiful Sweet Pea collection, and enjoyed every bit of time I spent coloring this little beauty. I used mainly my copics, but was unable to get the depth I really was looking for, so my coloring pencils came very useful. The halo around the picture was obtained with coloring pencil and solvent, I added Distress ink all around the border to emphasizes the effect of darkness. I used the wonderful sketch No. 156 from Sketch Saturday. Hope Cindy will like her, and so do you!

Je suis vraiment sortie de ma zone de confort pour explorer la féminité, la sensualité avec cette fée qui s'appelle Moonight Fairy, de la collecton Sweet Pea, ce fut pour moi un défi, habituée à colorier Tilda,  Comme Cindy aime le bleu, j'ai voulu créer une scène où la lune resplendirait. Je me suis inspirée du sketch de Sketch Saturday no. 156. J'espère qu'elle plaira à Cindy, et à vous aussi!

This interior page was created with my cricut, Paper lace cartridge.

On this pannel, I used the same layout as the front of the card; to leave space for writing, I used a watercolor paper, I stamped & embossed this wonderful corner stamp from SU, and inked with 

I would like to invite you to visit my friends and teamates Christina, Cathy-Lynn , and Rene  to admire their wonderful creations.  Next week, our theme will be "A color combo, White + one color".  Have a very nice weekend!
