Today I have used the Farelle digital stamp from LeAnn's World 101, one of our generous sponsors for this challenge, to make a pair of birthday cards.



My cards started in Silhouette Studio, along with a pretty foliage circle cut file, sizing the image and "frame" to fit on a 5" square panel.  I adjusted the settings to print 0.25pt black lines instead of cutting the design.  I used a font from my digital stash to create the sentiment then printed the image panels on X-Press It blending card, heat set, trimmed to size then coloured with Copic markers.  I cut a matting layer for each card then coloured the edges to match the mermaid's hair.  I made some card bases from 200gsm smooth white cardstock, adhered the matting layers and image panels in place with liquid adhesive.  I finished off the cards by adding metallic green pearls.

Here is Farelle with pretty purple hair.







... and here she is with magical magenta hair:



This was my first time adding E11 to the Copic marker
combo for skin and I'm thrilled with the results.

NOW it's YOUR turn!

I hope that I have inspired you to get creative
and look forward to seeing your projects fill the gallery for
Penny's Challenge 478

Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge Blog
