AiFactory Challenge - Sweet Pea Fairies

Hi everyone!! I'm back! I have really missed creating and sharing with everyone.

This week, we're using the cutest digi-stamps! I've loved this set since the first time I saw it, and it may be my favourite at AiFactory. With a name like Sweet Pea Fairies, how could they be anything other than adorable?? We've got a second set that some of us are using this week - Hand Drawn Wings. These are gorgeous and I have visions of altered books and ATCs floating in my head for them.

Part of our challenge this week was to use either of those two sets (or both?) and to use the following sketch from Clean and Simple Stamping: Fall to Layout #43.
Because my wrists aren't quite fully healed from tendinitis, I went all digital this week. In addition, it's practice for CAT 118, my Digital Illustration class, so I can count my blogging as doing homework! Works for me. I used the Kuler website to help choose colours and then made a very subtle gradient as my background. I'm not sure if you can tell, but there are metallic gradients for the crown and the wings - though I reduced the opacity in the wings, since wings should be shiny or sparkly, but never heavy.Now it's your turn. You have until Monday, October 19, at midnight, to play along. All rules are at the AiFactory Challenge blog. If you post to an online gallery, please use the keywords AIF007 and FTL43. If you're feeling froggy, you might want to post to the CAS Stamping: FTL43 post, too. I'm sure the folks over there would love to see what you make!

Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's posts. We all love getting comments!
