TSC DT: Not stars in the sky

Good morning Everyone!

How all is well. Taking a tiny tiny of a break from Halloween cards, Halloween candy and Halloween costumes or costume talk..... well I guess this could be a costume too but.... yea.

A couple of people came to mind when I created this card. The fairy named Alyce (which you can buy by clicking the link provided) I colored a while ago but had not thought of anything to put her on. Sometimes when I color something just for just and I digging it I just want to look at it and not disturb it by sticking it on paper.... but I had an idea for it this time and hoped for the best.

I created my own background by using Time Holtz Distress Ink pads: Broken China and Dusty Concord, Stampendous Frantage, Clear glitter embossing powder on white pigment ink for the sentiment. I'm thinking I should have used a different embossing powder because the white font seems to sort of disappear when I added the clear powder. This rubber stamp by Impression Obsession # E5094 I bought that from (I love that shop too)

Here is my Alyce - it was so much fun coloring her.

 I colored her up with Copic and pencils.
A tiny big of Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll pen.
 I love love looking at things, objects or animals in nature with iridescent colors. 
From pearls, to hummingbirs and even car oil or grease along the sidewalk after it has 
rained or the car has been washed... oh yea and bubbles they have an irridescence
and lets not forget dragonflies and house flies. LOL 
From a young girl as far as I could remember I was always mesmerized by all of these colors and I and I still am.... so I was trying to think of a way to make her wings and hair 
look iridescent without adding glitter because I so can't photograph glitter. 
So there you have it I was inspired by bugs and stuff. LOL
Here is a close up sort of and sorry these photos are taken with artificial lighting in the house...
Mommy crafting in the middle of the night again....

Thank you for stoping by. I hope you create with something that 
truly inspires you in life... could be anything... even a dead house fly. Ha!

Will be entering my card at:


  1. This is fantastic! I used to love those colors did a wonderful job portraying them!

  2. I had a dream about my grandpa last night - it felt like a visit from him. I woke up and one of the first things on my feed was this beautiful card. It brought tears to my eyes. Absolutely love the sentiment. And the way you coloured her is so unique - it really is a work of art!
