Playful Pixie - CDS

Good afternoon everyone. As the month of August draws to an end, so does my term with CDS. It has been such a blast working with all of these lovely and talented artists. I hope you have enjoyed viewing my projects as much as I enjoyed making them. If you haven't had a chance to work with CDS stamps, you should give it a try. They are so easy to use with clear crisp edges.
This is my last project using the CDS August release stamps. This set, Playful Pixies, can be purchased HERE.

I really wanted her little wings to stand out so I found a great iridescent paper in my stash and stamped and cut out her wings. Once those were glued I popped up her little body, watercolored and added stickles for a touch of whimsy. I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder to add dimension to my Bazzil cardstock and layered DCWV DP from the summer stack. Once stitched I added the ribbon, the hardware and a rosette that has been colored with Copics to match the color scheme.
