Blog Hopping with The Stamping Boutique

Welcome to my stop on The Stamping Boutique blog hop!  

If you were unaware of the blog hop going on today and would like to start at the beginning here's a link to Kym's blog Nana's Keepsake's.

For my card I used Cynthia the fairy mending wings and the single spool of thread digi stamps.  When I first saw the spool of thread at The Stamping Boutique store I knew just how I'd like to use it!   

I started by copying and pasting the spool of thread all over the page in my Publisher program after I'd made it just the size I wanted it.  As I pasted the spools I tilted them this way and that to make them more random and printed my page.  Next I colored them at random using the colors I'll be using in my focal image.

I colored my Cynthia image with Copic markers, applied Stampin' Up! Crystal Effects and Dazzling Diamonds to her wings then matted her on black card stock.  I used a sketch from Cute Card Thursday by Claudia Rosa , the store bought patterned paper is Basic Grey Kioshi, I added a couple of black buttons from my stash to balance everything and it needed something else so I added the sentiment, "Hope you're on the mend soon" from my computer.  I probably shouldn't tell you this... but my computer generated sentiment is a scrap of Kioshi paper that's attached over the first paper.  I know, I'm a cheater!!  

You'd better be on your way to the very talented  Maria's blog now for your next stop in the blog hop, enjoy!
