Try It Out Tuesday #9 - Lark


The more I do sketches, the more I love them. Suzanne, our ever talented Design Team Leader for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design has given us a beauty to work with. I'm trying to put my own spin on the sketches and take a little bit of creativity in them so I turned the sketch. Bear with me and I'll get there!


Faeries, to me, are those magical beings that are all around and make all things possible. They protect us against the big, mean dragon and all the fire it can blow our way. Lark is such a delicate looking faerie but don't underestimate her. She can slay anything that crosses her path.

I stamped her on GinaK's Luxury white card stock and colored her with copics. I highlighted her with shimmers and stickles. The swirls and flowers are from a Hello Kitty Sizzix die and I adore the metallic brads. the paper is from Once Upon a Time by DCWV and I made the hatpin. I love the amber color.

Speaking of our Design Team, I've got tons of news to tell there. Aud has graciously agreed to join us as a permanent Design Team Member and I'm so excited to introduce you to Karolyn Loncon who has agreed to be one of our Guest Designers. Welcome Aud and Karolyn I'm so glad to be creating with you both! Make sure that you check out our Follow Your Heart Design Team blog and see what my other team mates have come up with and their interpretation of Suzanne's sketch. Don't forget about the Guest Design Team Member Call that Suzanne is having. You can see all the details on the store blog. We'd love to have you create and design with us!
