Stardust Dreams

I'm happy to announce I've been accepted as a new member of the Creative Design Team for Morgan's Artworld.  Morgan Fitzsimons is a British artist, illustrator and author who's talents are known world wide.  If you are not familiar with her work, I'd invite you to check out her Art at her Etsy Store or her Creative Art Design Studio for her digitial and other items.

For my first posting with the team, I selected her Stardust and Pumpkin 2 image.  Here's my finished card ~ 

To make this card I enlarged the stardust fairy to about 3" tall and printed her on Neenah 110# cardstock.  I used my Copic markers for coloring and then carefully cut her out.  After selecting the orange and brown background patterned paper I used a jungle leaf die and an olive green to brown patterned paper to make the second layer.  For the mushroom border I found a light gray paper with a small patterned design that gave it the dimensional effect.  As I added the stardust fairy, I carefully colored the background areas to match where I placed her - through the openings in her arms, legs and around her ear.  I also secured her at the base but added foam squares across her shoulders and behind her head to raise these areas for depth. 

I elected not to add a sentiment to the forest scene just yet.  There are many possibilities for different occasions it could be used for and plenty of room to add something later.
