Cricut-Edited Digi. Image on Glittered Stenciled Background

Hello! We have a new challenge at Incy Wincy Designs Challenge Blog with the theme Things With Wings. Our image sponsor for this challenge is Oddball Art Co. The image I used is called Fiona Feary. This image is available as a zombie fairy and a cute fairy. The image supplied to us is the zombie fairy. I prefer the cute fairy over the zombie fairy. Good thing, I was able to edit the zombie image using the Cricut Design Space. I erased the stitched up lip. I used the CDS to print the image. I was going to have the Cricut machine cut the image as well but I must have done something wrong in CDS because it is being cut as an outline image. No worries! I just fussy cut the image. It was a bit of a struggle cutting it since I printed the image on a Bristol Smooth paper. I also printed the image on Clearprint Heavy Vellum and fussy cut the wings. I applied Ranger Glossy Accents to the edge of the wings to adhere it to the colored image.  This allowed the wings to be pulled up for some dimension.

I colored the image using Zig Clean Color markers. I applied Clear Wink of Stella to the vellum wings.

I am using the the ICraft Pixie Spray for the first time. It is definitely a good product to use especially with intricate stencils. I am using a Memory Box Heartwood stencil for this card to create the background. After I sprayed the back of the stencil with the Pixie Spray, I positioned this over a purple cardstock. I applied Cosmic Shimmer Antique Rose Kiss over the stencil, using the sponge applicator included in the lid. I carefully removed the stencil and cleaned it using soapy water. I set the cardstock aside to dry.

For the embellishments, I die cut the Pink Fresh Studio Floral Squares die on white cardstock. I strategically positioned the die cuts since I only need the inner elements of the square. I trimmed off the square frame. I also die cut a lavender cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Happy Birthday die. I adhered the flower die cuts and the sentiment on the stenciled glitter purple panel. I adhered the digi. image on the center using foam adhesive. I trimmed 1/4" off the edges, then adhered this to a lavender cardstock with fun foam. I traced the die cut sentiment with a metallic purple gel pen. This panel was adhered to a white top folding A2 note card.

Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope to see your creations at the challenge blog. Have a blessed, brilliant and creative day!
