There's Magic in the Air at Paper Cupcakes Monday Challenge


Hello everyone - I am very excited and honored to have been choosen to be a guest designer (each Monday for the month of Sept.) for Paper Cupcakes - Magic in the Air. The owner and very talented artist of Paper Cupcakes digital stamps, Nina May, had asked me a while back to join her team as a guest designer and needless to say I was just thrilled. I had won 2 free digi-stamps from Paper Cupcakes from a House Mouse challenge I entered a couple of months ago and Nina visited my blog. The challenge over at There's Magic in the Air is a recipe which is to include, any image from Paper Cupcakes, ribbon, embellishments, Designer Paper and flowers. I choose one of my favorite PCC images - her name is Mandelina. I colored her with copic markers (see list below) and then cut her out and placed her on 2 different sizes of circle nesties. I added sparkly stickles to her wings and the hanging hearts. I then glued buttons on the flowers, added a few gold pearls and a sentiment that was on some DP paper I had in my stash. I also added a gold ribbon in the background. Thank you for stopping by to visit my blog and I hope you get a chance to check out the rest of the design team cards over at There's Magic in the Air

Copics Used: face/skin - E11, R20, hair - YR21, YR24, dress - YR24, G40, G82, G85, G99, branch - E35, E37 and flowers - YR20, YR24.

Have a fabulous Monday!!
Your stamping friend
Debbie
