Fun commission...

Hey,

So recently JT became an Auntie (her Niece is gorgeous), which is lovely, I love being an Aunt.

Her Sister got in touch and asked me to make a 'Will you be my Godmother?' card.

I was intrigued by this concept (a Google search tells me it's very popular) and so obviously said yes.

I decided that I would use a stamp by A Day for Daisies and rooted through what I had and looked at their website. I think their stamps are really sweet and fit the theme of this card perfectly.

I gave Dana a few choices and the image that you see is the one she chose.

I printed the image and the text out on my computer and coloured it using Promarkers, I added a shadow around the fairy girl and some Nuvo Crystal drops for sparkle.

I thought it would be nice to mount it on a Lawn Fawn spotty card blank.

I LOVE it, I did make a different version, which was going to have the text as a banner -

But I didn't love my colouring, the stickles on the wings or the die-cut...so basically I disliked the entire card.

It didn't go to waste though, I cut a load of banners and sentiments and sent it to Dana along with the main one and a few other blank cards, then if she loves it she can use it for something else.

I do like a surprise commission, it's fun to make cards that bring someone's idea / thought to life.
