PMS Makeup 4 the Weekend #15

Paper Makeup Stamps hosts an awesome challenge each week called "Makeup 4 the Weekend". This week's challenge was to use lots of pink and lots of bling. So, with that in mind, here's what I came up with:
I made this card for a coworker of mine that had surgery recently. It was a pretty major surgery that is going to keep her out of the office for 6 weeks so I'm sure she's going to need some cheering up. She is always oohing and aahing over handmade things so I wanted to do something special for her.

I used one of my newest stamps from PMS, The Heart Fairy. This is another stamp created for charity - The American Heart Association. I stamped the fairy on Neenah paper and colored the fairy using Copic Markers (E00, E21, RV21, RV23, RV25, RV29, BG000, BG02, E25, E27, E29, E49 and C1). I also used the clear Spica pen to give the wings and the heart a little bit of shine (can't easily see this in the picture). I inked around the white cardstock to tune it down a little bit and blend better with the pinks. The bling is Swarovski Rhinestones and is actually 2 shades of pink and also clear. I used a Sizzix texture plate to create the embellished dots on the background paper. The paper that I used for this card is from Papertrey Ink. This is one of my very favorite paper lines as it's excellent smooth cardstock. It's very difficult for me to find smooth cardstock that is high quality and is available in the 8 1/2 x 11 size for my card making.

Thanks for stopping by. Happy Crafting!! :)
