Hi Broken Stock Box fans!!

Hope you are having a great 4th of July.    Can you believe that after 30+ days without rain we are having some today?  Talk about timing!!!  Anyway, I am here to show you a card I made for Broken Box Stock to introduce one of their latest images Fairy Toodles.  

Here is a sneak peek:

I have to tell you I am becoming an addict to the colored versions of the stamps.  They are a time saver and I have discovered through my creating process that I am not great at coloring images.  I enjoy the process but find that it's not my strongest ability.  Still, I do love to play with images that's why specially when it comes to color skin I an relying more on colored images.

I wanted this card to look very soft and delicate so instead of adding lots of embelishments I just extended the stars in the image to create sort of a star trail.  This is very easy to achieve with digital images.  Then I added rhinestones, very small pearls, some twine and a button.  

For the sentiment I used a digital file from Sugar Gem.  The sentiment is from
 The Alley Way Chatterbox stamp set.  I also used a lot of stickles to add some glitter and shine.

Here is a view of the open card:

Remember that you have until tomorrow to play with the Red, White and Blue challenge  
and hopefully get some Broken Box goodies.  

Have a great afternoon!!

You've just described my feelings. Love to color the images but the outcome is not always the best. When it comes to face painting, I have to do it twice and sometimes just change my mind... LOL! Your card is beautiful...
