ONE DAY FAE at FAERY INK!!

Today is our One Day Fae of the Month giveaway at Faery Ink and as always, this month's image is a beauty!  Her name is Doodlebug Valentine Lollipop and you can find out all the details on how to claim your free image at Faery Ink Facebook Group and Faery Ink Blog. Right Click and SAVE LINK AS

I always love the Fae of the Month each month and have so much fun coloring these beauties.  This time around I chose traditional “Valentine’s” colors – red, pink, purple - to color her with my Copics.  I then cut her out with my Cameo.  The sentiment comes with the image (you also get the image with no sentiment, but I love when images come with sentiments as it means less time having to search through all my sentiment stamps for the perfect one).

WIN_20161231_15_35_11_Pro

I used an easel card fold this time to showcase this cutie.  Papers are from Imaginisce, I used Tonic die cuts, wooden hearts that I colored with Copics and stickers from Recollections.

 

Sure hope you like my creation and hopefully it has given you some inspiration. Make sure that you visit the Faery Ink Shop to pick up this FABULOUS FREEBIE – for the next 24 hours – and to see all the wonderful images there, especially all this month's New Releases!!
