This week’s CAS challenge at SCS (cas71) is a theme challenge: things that fly. My first thought was “pigs”, but I’ve already done that (see). My next thought was a baseball…but alas, no baseball images (hrm, I thought I had an old set, but apparently not – another reason to move that PTI set up my wish list!). So on to other ideas, of which I had many! I went with the fairy idea.
I chose to color the image with Copics, although I found I am lacking in many color areas (geez, guess that means I need more Copics! 😀 ). I used the Stampin’Up marker for the purple.
Boy this card had many iterations before this final look. First I colored the fairy with green stockings & boots (so NOT a good look); then I wanted to do a purple base and include the long swirly magic dust that is included with the fairy image – but I couldn’t make that work. Everything else that came to mind kept the card from being CAS. Finally, I cut out the image and went with a very simple layout. I still wish I could do something in the background, but I just can’t think what could add without detracting.
** Making big wishes that PTI comes out with a light purple!
