CDS Sneak Peek - Playful Pixies

Can I just say this set is just too much fun? I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. Playful Pixies is available August 1st from Clear Dollar Stamps. For my first card, I was inspired by a card I had made months ago that had a similar feel to it. I love my Labels 4 Nestabilities - they add a bit of whimsy yet elegance. I've colored this image using Tombow markers and then added Diamond Stickles on the wings as well as on the pixie dust.

This card was so much fun to make!!!! I've had the Blossom Nestabilities for months but kept forgetting that I had them. One of the design team challenges required us to use a cut out our stamped image as an accent on a card. I used my nestabilities to create a flower. Between each layer, I added Stamping Dimensionals to pop everything up and try to make the flower look more realistic. I then stamped one of the pixies using Versafine Onyx Black and colored her with my Tombow markers. I then cut her out and popped her up using stamping dimensionals again. This card turned out too cute.
