Dandylion Pixie Thanks

Happy Monday to you!  I hope you had a fabulous weekend. My weekend was rather uneventful, as I rested up and continued to recover from bronchitis. I did, however, have the chance to make a few cards.  

I had a blast putting this little card together using the Tiddly Inks Dandylion Pixie digi image and Deconstructed Sketch No. 87. I plan to submit this card to both Jen's Deconstructed Sketch challenge and Tiddly Inks Challenge #102 - Wings.

I have been drawn to light, soft colors lately. I think I might be ready for spring! ;) The patterned paper used is from the My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy 6x6 paper pad. The image is colored with Copic Markers of course, and the dandylion is covered in custom mixed Doodlebug flock. I simply mixed some white flock with a little bit of pink and orange to create the peachy light pink flock you see below.

The image below shows how the main image shimmers just a bit better. I painted almost all of the digi image using Shimmerz Pixie Dust Blingz. I really love this product because you can paint it right on top of the black lines of printed digi images without causing any smearing. The little bit of sparkle that it adds just gives images that extra special touch. 
I hope you have enjoyed my card. Please feel free to contact me if you have any additional questions or just want to say hi.  

Have a fabulous week!
