Midway Post Challenge #29 at Open-Minded Crafting

Hi everyone, 
Well another day another week,
guess time marches on regardless.
Hope everyone has had a good start to the new month,
and so far so good for me as well
(fingers crossed).

So again it is the halfway point of our Challenge
over at Open-Minded Crafting,
and I am here sharing my Inspiration Card with you all.
I am using a brilliant new (to me) sponsor,
who I just know is swiftly going to
become another one of my firm favorites

The Theme at
NO Pink and NO Red 

Our Sponsors this week are:-

Bugaboo Stamps who are offering
7 Images.

Faery Ink who is offering
3 Images.

Oak Pond Creations who are offering
3 Images.

The Fantasy Art of Ronne P Barton who are offering

2 Images.

My Project for this
week is:-
Moon Song Fairy Digi Stamp
(one of our sponsors)

To make the Base Card with used an A4 sheet of  White Card
which I folded in half to make a Rectangle Base Card.
Then using the 10.8cm Circle Die
(all the Circle Dies are from Sizzix)
cut it on the fold.

Using Pearlised Purple Card
(Ross Papers)
I cut out 2 Scalloped Circle Frame Creatable Die
(Marianne Designs).
1 for the Base and the other for the Front.

Next I printed the Image off 4 times.
Twice on White DC Paper,
Once on a scrap of Grey/Cream Marble Paper
And once on a scrap of Purple Vellum Paper
On one of the White Paper images
I coloured the Image
using my Promarker Pens.

                                                           Skin -            Vanilla

                                                                                  Dusky Pink (Cheeks)
                                                                                  Lavender (Eyes)
                                                                                  Maroon (Lips)
                                                           Hair -            Lavender
                                                                                  Cool Grey 1
                                                                                  Cool Grey 2
                                                                                  Cool Grey 3
                                                                                  Cool Grey 4
                                                           Skirt -           Lavender
                                                           Belt -             Slate
                                                           Pan Pipes -   Sandstone

I cut the Moon out of the Marble Paper,

and the Wings out of the Purple Vellum,
and the coloured Fairy out.

With the other printed Image I Die Cut it out

using the 9.5cm Circle Die
and placed it on the Front of the Card.
Then rubbed the bottom half of the circle
with Dark Purple Decorate Chalk
Then added the Moon and Wings to the Image.
I wanted to try to do something different so 
on the bottom Image Vest I stuck some 
Fringed Purple/Silver Lace
(Boyes Haberdashery)
and fussy cut out the Fairy's top 
on the other Image.
I added some Iridescent Mauve Pink Glitter
(Glitter Magic)
to her hair.
And to her Belt I added a 4mm Mid Purple Pearl,
and two 3mm Light Purple Pearls

For the base of the card
I Die-cut out  a 6.4cm Circle from Pearlised White Paper
(Ross Papers)
and a 5.1cm Circle from Pearlised Purple Card.
Then cutting both circles in half.

Also with the Pearlised White Paper
I Die-cut out the Swirl Circle and
2 of the Flowers
(Leane Creatief Lea'bilities)
and used Pearlised Purple Card for the other 2 Flower Dies.
On all the Pearlised White Paper
I dusted it all with the Dark Purple Chalk.

For the Sentiment I used the 'Dream' stamp
from the Birdcage Set
(Clarity Stamps)
with Whisper White Ink
(Stampin' Up!)

And for my Final touch I added 4mm Mid Purple Pearls
to the Center of each Flower.
And made a row of the 3mm Light Purple Pearls
for the front of the card to rest against.
