Black Rose Fairy

Hello! On my last couple of Sweet Pea cards I used a lot more embellishments than I usually do, so I decided to keep it a little simpler this time. These images are so gorgeous they don't really need all of those extra embellishment (although they look beautiful that way, too!) This one, called Black Rose Fairy, is on sale at Sweet Pea Stamps right now!

My background was made by rubbing Black Craft ink (Stampin' Up) over one side of my Cuttlebug embossing folder and then using gray cardstock. I tried to step out of my box a little on her skin coloring. I have a go-to skin color that I always use, so it's a little hard to let go and try something else, but I am pretty pleased with the result! I am so inspired by Randi and all of her fabulous color combos on skin and hair!

The Details:
Stamp: Black Rose Fairy (ching-chou kuik's Fantasy Art Collection sheet 7 plate 29)-Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: Basic Gray and Basic Black (SU) White (Paper Trey Ink)
