FAE OF THE MONTH 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 Lahla Three Little Birds and you can find out all the details on how to claim your free image at Faery Ink Facebook Group and Faery Ink Blog.

I always love the Fae of the Month each month and have so much fun coloring these beauties.   This month I decided to use cool colors for her wings, the grass and the birds.

WIN_20170131_14_03_51_Pro

Here is a closer up view of her wings as well as the birds.  I used a combo of Copic grey, light blue and light purple, I believe it was C2, C0, B00 and V01 and in each case I did a bit of blending out with my Copic colorless blender.  For the wings I went in with my Copic colorless blender and added a bunch of dots – I hope this close up view allows you to see the details a bit better/clearer.

WIN_20170131_14_03_51_Pro

This fold I chose is a lever fold – usually I have seen it with a square or rectangle coming through the window, but I saw this circle lever on Pinterest and decided to give it a try.  I am really pleased with the results.Smile

WIN_20170131_19_17_12_Pro

I used Heartfelt Creations papers, butterflies from my stash and sentiment from Riley and Co. which is cut with Crafter’s Companion die.  Bling flourishes are from Zva Creative.  I used Tattered Lace dies for circles behind the image and image is cut with my Cameo.  Sure hope you like my creation and hopefully it has given you some inspiration.

In exchange for this free digi, please leave a comment on the Faery Ink Blog One Day Fae post with a song that never fails to cheer you up and feel free to leave a link to where the project is featured on your blog.

GORGEOUS FITNESS GIRL FROM FAERY INK

faeryink_inspo_linker3

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday.  I just returned late Sunday from a 3 day trip to Memphis, TN for my younger son’s soccer tournament.  The weekend was better than expected, but busy, tiring and a lot of driving over the course of 3 days – 8 hrs. each way plus driving to the games.


Anyway, I have a creation to share today using one of the Newest Releases from Faery Ink Shop, Gorgeous Fitness Girl.

Gorgeous Fit Girl Digital Stamp by Amanda S Byron www.faeryink.com

This awesome image has provided great inspiration for me to get my workout schedule up to date.  I made a planner cover with her.

NEW RELEASES AT IMAGINE THAT! DIGISTAMPS

Hi everyone!  Life was busier than expected in January and then we found out our younger son has a soccer tournament 8 hrs. away this weekend and my hubby has a work commitment that he must attend, so I am going alone on this trip with my son.  I’m sure it will be fine, but it is a lot of driving in a short period of time and since it was scheduled so late, I didn’t have time to have much done in advance of leaving, so I have been running a bit behind the past week or so.
Make sure you visit Imagine That! Digistamp Creative Playground and Comment to WIN
***BUT WAIT***
there's more...

Anyway, I am excited to announce that we have NEW RELEASES at Imagine That! Digistamp just in time for your Valentine’s, or any other loved themed, creations.  My posting today is a wee bit late due to having to get ready to go away as well as some dr. appts. and commitments for my kids.  

From now until Friday, February 3rd (that’s today – sorry I didn’t give you much time), leave a comment on any of the New Release posts for your chance to win. Five lucky people will win a set of their choice from this new release!
Until Tuesday, February 7th, purchase any item in the Valentine & Love section of the store, and you'll receive 25% off your order. Just use the code: CUPID25 at checkout!
You can click HERE to head straight to that section.
I have used Whooo Loves You? set for my first creation.

For this card, I used the image with the owls on the branch as well as one of the sentiments.  I used a fan fold on this with papers from Simple Stories.  Sentiment is distressed with a mini ink pad from my stash.  Image is colored with Copics and cut with My Cameo.  Ribbon is from PaperMart.


My other creation features Owl Always Love You set.


I have also used Simple Stories papers on this one, although a different set than the other card.  Image is once again colored with Copics and cut with my Cameo.  I also used Copics and my Cameo for the sentiment I chose from this set.  Flower with bling is from Recollections and bling at bottom left is Bo Bunny.

I hope that you have been inspired by the new release creations.  Our team continues to work extremely hard to impress you and I'm sure they'd appreciate a visit to their personal blogs.  To find more of our Facebook Team's work, check out the Imagine That! Digistamp group over on Facebook (though you must be a member of the group to see it).

If you have purchased one of these sets or have used any set from Imagine That! Digistamp, we'd love to see what you create. Be sure to add your projects to our Monthly Link Up which you can find by clicking HERE. Linking up ANY creation using an Imagine That Digistamp image (and following our other rules) earns you a chance to win a $10 gift code to the store AND you will receive the featured set for that month for free, emailed to you!   What an awesome BONUS!!

Wishing you all a happy weekend and see you soonSmile
