Mark’s Finest Papers



I love fairies and collect fairie books and love to read all thing fairie so this is a terrific set for me.
The first card was made using Lime Squeeze and Snow Storm White cs from MFP.
I love these colors together.
I inked this pretty fairie image 2 times in Palette Noir black and colored with Copic markers. I also added some teeny tiny aqua pearls to the tip of her wings. I then die cut one image with a plain Nestie and the second I line cut just the fairie and popped it over the main panel image. I then added a die cut Nestie scalloped mat.
The bg is embossed with a folder I received as a gift.
To embellish my card I used Doohickey die cut leaves with tiny pearls in the leaves and finished with a gorgeous paper flower.

The second card I made for yesterday SCS challenge. I have this beautiful picture of a rain drop in a leaf "I don't know who the photographer is" and though it would be perfect to show this cute fairie silhouette.
The image is inked in Palette Noir with the inside of wings colored with a red Copic marker.
I added a sentiment tag and a gorgeous red ribbon bow.
Clean and simple, I also really like how this one turned out.
Have a wonderful weekend, Nicky

  2. Your card are both so beautiful. Love the embossed background and the flower garland on the first to show the image off and the second with the photo is a very clever idea.
