Fairy Smiles

Welcome to another Flutter By Wednesday!! The challenge this week is open! Just be sure to have a butterfly, fairy or angel on your new creations!!


My fairy images is from Hearts In Touch Marjolein Fairy Art. I really need to practice coloring these images because so far evrything I do simply does not do them justice. So after a few attempts at coloring I decided to simply stamp and emboss and I love this effect because it really brings out the detail of the stamps.

And my sentiment is my trusty "Smiles" stamp. My favorite ;)


Be sure to flutter over to the FBW blog to be inspired by the rest of the DT as well as see the winner of last week's challenge AND some new changes coming to the FBW blog!

It really is pretty, and your way doesn't just bring out the detail in the stamp, it also lets the gorgeous paper you use shine! I love your pearls - especially the one at the end of the smile! :)

Great color choice on this HIT beauty! Even though I'm always coloring or added Stickles or glitter to the wings, your work is a true beauty. Like you said, the art can stand alone on this one!

What a STUNNING card, Debby! I don't think that image could capture its beauty and detail if colored! Your choices of papers always are so perfect for the images you use, especially with this one! FABULOUS job!

OMG Debby! This is even better in person!!!!! I'm so honored to receive this beauty along with the extras you included! I've been wanting to order that plate & after seeing them in the flesh, they're #1 on my list now!

Thanks so much for the wonderful welcome! I'm still a bit intimidated by the art done by this group, but I'm learning bit by bit. Thanks for the inspiration you & the others have given me! Lee
