ICS DT call

One of my favorite blog sites is having a DT call, the ICS!! Here is the sketch that we were asked to use! As soon as I saw the sketch I knew EXACTLY what I was going to do ... I had all these
wonderful ideas pop into my head!! You see, I had just gotten back from a trip to The Town Scrapper. I used "Pippi" one of the Swiss Pixie fairies from C.C. Design, and also the Bench which is also a C.C. Design stamp. They are both stamped using Momento Tuxedo black ink, and coloured with copics. I am very excited to use my new "0000" colours in this image! I added some extra sparkle to the wings with my clear spica. On the top of Pippa's pumpkin hat I added some Crystal Effects to give it a little wet look! The orange background is embossed using a pumpkin cuttlebug embossing folder. The pumpkin background for the sentiment was cut using my sizzix, doubled. I found the sentiment in a bag of buttons and it really seemed to work for the layout!

I used a lot of different shades while colouring Pippi ... She is just tooo cute!!! Of course I used LOTS of layers too!!!

I couldn't leave the inside totally blank so I added a little of the spiderweb DT with another pumkin to tie it all in!!

Thanks for taking a look! Wish me luck with the DT call!!
