A "FAIRY" BIG THANK YOU

 
 
 Hello everyone!  Hope you are having an absolutely beautiful day.  I'd like to welcome you to another fabulous challenge at 

CRAFTING WHEN WE CAN

Our challenge is something I have never done before.  It's called "No Line Technique".  Basically you print the image so light you can hardly see them so the lines don't show up once the image is colored.  There is a tutorial here for you.
 
We are once again sponsored by Inky Impressions:

 
Over Mother's Day weekend, my sister Rebecca and I went to a scrap-booking convention in Michigan.  We have cousins (Hazel and Candy) there that we don't see very often.  At the convention we got to meet Tim Holtz!  It was so exciting.  He is such a nice guy.  I loved all the distressing techniques he showed us and hopefully after a little practice I will be making projects using them.  
 
We visited Bronner's in Frankenmuth, MI which is the largest Christmas store in the country.  There is also a small mock German village with shops and restaurants.  They have an amazing fairy store where Rebecca got a biker chick gnome.   It is so her.  Candy went with us to the convention and she knows just about everyone there.  She has a shop also and so knows most of the venders.  We had such an amazing time and plan to attend next year also.

I am making them some thank you cards.  I posted Candy's card on Friday.  This one is for her mom.  Hazel has a set of fairies in her yard that are just adorable.  I thought she would love this image.  

The image I used is called "Fairy Sitting on a Clothespin".  I colored her with Copic markers then added some Glossy Accents & glitter pen for that added shine.  I added a butterfly from  Craft Fantastic  (one of the companies at the convention).  The sentiment is from Scrappy Cat & I added some Tim Holtz Distress Ink Antique Linen.  The pearls are Queen & Co., the ribbon is from Offray and the papers are all from my scraps (love to use those up).
 
I hope to see you in the challenge this fortnight and don't forget to visit CWWC challenge blog and check out all the fabulous projects that have been made by my fellow DT members.
