Addicted to Wee

Well, that isn't strictly true, it isn't just Wee that I am addicted to - more like anything Sylvia!  I had quite a stressful day at work yesterday so when I got home, after we'd eaten, I lost myself in colour for a couple of hours.  And of course by then it had come on to rain so I'd lost the light for a decent photo!

This absolutely adorable little fairy is called Poppy and she is from SCACD by Sylvia Zet - I got mine from Quixotic Paperie.

I've painted Poppy with my trusty Distress Inks (ReInkers) and then teamed her up with some Basic Grey papers.  I think this must be an old pad as it has lost its cover and I have no idea what it is called.  Shame, as there are some luscious papers.

I used a Martha Stewart border punch to show off the contrast between the deep orange and olive green papers that I used for the central border and the matting layers on the image.

Hugs, Sxx

A winner of a colour combination. I've "pinned" this for future inspiration as I have a stack of orange card stock that I am struggling for inspiration on how to use it!

Lovely card! Basic Gray paper is just the bomb. I think I recognize that old stuff, but not enough to tell you what the name of it is though. The fact that you color with reinkers just floors me. Color me impressed!
