There's Magic in the Air Monday Challenge


Hello everyone - it is Monday once again and time for There's Magic in the Air challenge. I was given an image to use this week by artist Nina May from Paper Cupcakes digital images. The image she gave me to use is called "Autumn's Solitude". I was a bit leary of this image as it is very detailed and I really wasn't sure how I would put this all together. I will be honest it is not one of my favorite cards but I do like the color combination of orange and turquoise. I actually did quite a bit of paper piecing - the fairie's dress, her wings and the two pumpkins are paper pieced from various DP. I used my copic markers to color in the rest of the image and added an orange straw flower, a quickutz die cut, some small bronze and turquoise pearls, ribbon and I added some wire swirls to finish off. Nina had provided us with a photo of fall leaves for our inspiration. I had a very very busy weekend - the wedding we went to was very nice - I will add a couple of photos this week when I get a chance to download from my camera. My house is a disaster after having my kids here for the weekend and all the busyness. Hopefully by next weekend I can have things back to some kind of normalicy. Thank so much for stopping by to visit and I hope your Monday is a good one. Bye for now.

Your stamping friend
Debbie
