Happy Holidays from Buttercup

Hi! I love using my favorite non-Christmas themed stamps for Holiday cards. This one is Buttercup Reedweb, designed by the Fabulous Amy and available at All That Scraps! You can get her in rubber or digi, and this is the first time ever I decided I HAD to have both (well, with all 4 of Amy's Fairies!)! I just couldn't decide if it would be better to have digi so I could re-size them and flip the images, or rubber for all of the other cool techniques you can do with ink...

I used one of the digi ones for this card. I also used my coupon at Jo-Ann's and bought a package of Sakura Glaze Pens, and as you can see I went a little crazy with the dooding!! It was a lot of fun!

The Details:
Stamps: Buttercup Reedweb - Sweet November (through All That Scraps), Sentiment - Verve
Paper: My Minds Eye (trees), Basic Grey (Pink), Real Red, Soft Sky - SU, PTI White
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamagic - Pink Petunia
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: R81,R83,R85
Clothes and Wings: C0,C1,R35,R37,R39,B01
Misc: Sakura Glaze Pen (red), Uniball Signo White Gel Pen, Cuttlebug Embossing Folder, Circle Nestabilities, SU Corner Rounder

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a fabulous weekend!!

TRACI!!! OMG!! That hair is incredible! It's like...if Marie Antoinette were a fairy....
I SOOOO love it!! Very inspirational!! ANd, I love how you cut out and layered those trees! I went back to buy that stack and it was sold out. Ugh!

Yes, that glitter was all that pen! It is by far the most glittery clear pen I've ever owned. And it rolls pretty consistently. It is the Sakura Gelly Roll in Clear Star. There's a Silver Star, too. But it's the clear! And, I just outlined all the image lines. Super easy!
