Puddle-Jumping Seth


Today at Paper Makeup Stamps we are doing a review of the fairies from the August release. Be sure to check out the other fairy cards the makeup artists have made today too! On my card I have a puddle-jumping boy fairy named Seth. I think he and his sister fairy named Leigh are just so adorable! They both remind me of my niece and nephew who love to go puddle jumping after a good rain. I already know I'll have to make a matching Leigh card and drop them in the mail to my niece and nephew soon. {wink} I am also entering this card in the Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #71 - Snips and Snails and Puppy Dog Tails.

I colored Seth with prismacolor pencils and baby oil. His wings and the splashing water are coated with stickles - I just {heart} the sparkle that gives! I had this idea that if I cut him out using the largest 'Egg' nestie that it could look like a big drop of water instead. What do you think? Then I inked up a sizzix Summer Fun embossing folder with Pacific Point ink before dry embossing the light blue background. That puts ink into all the cracks of the pattern and I like the watery effect.

Don't forget that you can still go through the blog hop posts starting
here to collect all the letters for a 15% discount code off the August release that's good through Saturday, 8/14.

Thanks for stopping by and I wish you all the beary best!
