Ava is a Tinker Fairy!

Do you have a daughter? Then chances are you've seen the Disney Tinkerbell movies! My daughter absolutely loves them. And she loves the whole Ava Collection from InStyle Stamps - partly because they are so stinkin' cute, and partly because her name is Ava too! When I saw the color inspiration for this week's color challenge, I knew immediately that I wanted to make a Tinker Fairy :) Here is what the inspiration piece looks like:

I also used Mercy's fabulous sketch for this week - she has the best sketches!! I don't know if you can tell in the picture or not, but the faux stitching around the large panel is done by paper piercing and highlighting with a Spica glitter pen. The smaller panel is handstitched on there with white thread. I also used the glitter pen to outline around the embossed edge of the nestie. I completed the card with three sparkly skittles and three different ribbons - white organza, gold organza, and lavender satin.

And don't forget - the whole Ava Collection is being retired, and is only available until March 30th. After that, the stamps will no longer be digi - they'll be only in rubber and exclusively sold at retail stores!! Get them while you can, and while they are cheap!!!!!
