Oh so exciting!

Well the call went out and I ummed and ahed for ages then sent an email in to the lovely Zoe and took a chance at applying for a spot on her Design Team for Make it Crafty.

Well I nearly fell off my chair when Zoe emailed me to say I'd been selected.  I'm thrilled to be joining the talented girls in her team.  I am sure that there were very many talented artists who applied and it would have been a very difficult choice. 

Please visit the Make it Crafty store blog to see a list of all the Design Team.

Kasey (you are here)

As the inspiration we are providing you with this week is New Beginnings, I selected Little Baby Fairy and this is what I came up with

A lovely new baby card, I kept it fairly simple as I wanted the image to shine, but of course I couldn't help but add a little bit of bling in the form of glittered up Ornate Swirls chipboard pieces.  I coloured them with G43 first, then coated the swirls with Crystal Lacquer and then sprinkled some light and mid green glitters on the wet glue and left it aside to dry before adding it to the card front.  I also coloured some clear rhinestones with G99, I've found gems need a darker copic ink to give the colour you need.

 Here is a closer look at the Little Baby Fairy, I think she's adorable, she was a pleasure to colour. 

I hope you're inspired to head on over to Make it Crafty and pick up some of Zoe's delightful images or her super fine chipboard pieces.
