A Day For Daisies DT! & Challenge #125 - Use Newsprint

Some exciting news at My Creative Space - I have been asked to join the ADFD DT!!  I am just now breathing and have stopped squealing because I have been a fan of Tammy's work for a long time. It's truly an honor to be part of this amazing and talented group of ladies.

The ADFD theme for Challenge #126 is Newsprint.  I dug in my stash and pulled out at stack from SU! for the background and the flowers.   PTI's Good Times stamp set is used for the pink on the right side.  (I can tell I will get a lot of use out of this stamp - love it!!)  The word bubble die cut is from WPlus9.  A pixie needs glitter, so the leaf part of her dress is Stickled.

Aside from the beautiful lines and sweetness of the illustrations, one of the things I have loved about ADFD images is each one I have colored has stretched my skills in a new way.  This one is no exception.  Unsatisfied with my attempts at coloring her top like a hat, I decided to take try it as hair and was much happier with the results.  I also worked at where the light would hit her dress.  When I worked on the card in iPhoto, it seemed that the right spot was a little off and too big.  Note to self - let photo editing help with highlights and shading!!

Enough of the babble - Check out the DT creations HERE and play along with us.  The lucky challenge winner will receive a choice of 4 ADFD images from the shop and be featured on the ADFD Community FB page!
