Roses on Paper Design Team Color Challenge Hosted by Me!

It's my time to host the Roses on Paper Design Team Challenge and I chose to do a color challenge. I just love putting colors together and when I found this paper in my stash, the colors of soft blue, lavender and cream just seemed so soothing. It's getting to be the end of the summer and the bright, earthy colors of fall will be upon us so I wanted to pay homage to the last peaceful days of summer.

I love Fairy Eva from The Greeting Farm that you can get from Summer at Roses on Paper. She looks so serene and accepting of watching over the end of the summer season. She knows there's change coming and is ready for whatever comes her way. At least that's what I see in her! I stamped her with Memento Tuxedo Black (I always use that ink. I just love it!) and colored her with copics. I used my nestabilities to cut her out and frame her. The Prima flowers are touched with Stickles, as are her wings, and I placed silver spacers with pearls on the Prima flowers to give them a bit of class. I added some Dew Drops in the corner and then finished her off with a touch of Shimmerz Spritz.

Doesn't she have just the sweetest and most angelic face on her? Love this little sprite!

Here's a close up of the shimmery sheen she has. Wish I looked this sweet!

Don't forget to stop over at our Roses on Paper Design Team blog to see what great creations my designing sisters came up with. They're fabulous as always and make sure you visit their blogs and tell them how much you love their work! As a note for the store, Summer is going to be carrying the just scrumptous Bildmalarna's! They're just as cute as they can be so make sure you stop over and get your pre-order in! You won't want to miss them!
