My first Twinkling Tuesday (on a Thursday!)

This is my first time playing along with the Twinkling Tuesday challenge (yes, I know it's now Thursday, I just don't work that fast!) I've wanted to do this for a while because it's such a neat idea to have the kids come up with the sketches (or other challenges). This week the sketch comes from Jessica's son Jack.

I used Flutter Anya from the Greeting Farm. She is raised up on pop up dots. Her wings are actually partly cut apart and the top part of the wing has a double layer of dots to make them stand up even more. The DP is My Minds Eye and the brads are sugar coated brads from Doodlebug. She is colored with Copics:

Skin: R00, E00, E11, RV32
Clothes: RV32,RV34
Wings and Hair: BG11, BG32, BG34,BG49 then layered entirely over with B00, B02

Thanks for visiting with me today! I hope your day is great!

Traci this is so pretty! I love the papers you put together! And, great cotton candyish colors. Looks so sweet!

I tried to do a dimensional thing with the wings. I completely cut the wings and made several sets to layer, etc. I wasn't thrilled with my end result. This is SO much easier!! Brilliant! Thanks for sharing!!

Wow Traci! I love Anya's hair! You do such great work with your coloring. I have been wanting to join in on the Twinkling Tuesday Challenges also but I just haven't seem to been finding much stamping time lately. Maybe once I get off this computer, lol! Actually, I'm waiting on the Farmer's Market... One more hour!
