We’re starting a new week at the Paper Players. Laurie is hosting with an adorable Clean and Simple Challenge featuring Gnomes or Fairies!

I didn’t have a Gnome, but I knew I had a Fairie to share. A while back, Stampin’ Up! featured a stamp set called New Wonders. I thought it was adorable, and loved the sentiments, so I added it to my collection. I’ve used it often and enjoyed creating this card today.

The large Fairie image is stamped with Smoky Slate ink onto a Basic White card layer. I used Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen to color and shade the image. I kept the coloring soft and subtle and left a lot of white space.  Every Fairie has to sparkle and mine is no exception. I added a few 2021-2023 In Color Jewels for some shine.  When I looked more closely at the shape of the stamped image, I thought it would be fun to frame her with one of the Diorama Dies.  I think this image was made for this Die!

The Inside Of My Card

As we grow through life, we meet up with changes that will open that new “blank page” for us to illustrate.  I thought of that when I was creating this card.  There’s always a “New Wonder” to be experienced and enjoyed. I hope all of your “New Wonders” sparkle and shine!

So, find an adorable Gnome or a sparkly Fairie and create something wonderful to link up with us over at the Paper Players.

…the only limitation is your imagination!
