PCP Whimsie Doodle Challenge

Happy weekend! Whimsie Doodles has invited the Paper Craft Planet Super Novas to use some new release images. I invite you to head to the Paper Craft Planet blog to see the rest of the projects and do leave a comment their for a chance to win a prize from Whimsie Doodles. I've used Cookie Fairy, and made her a friend of Santa Claus.

Isn't she just so sweet? I wanted to use her on a Christmas card, and my thoughts went straight to a plate of cookies for Santa.

I coloured her hair with lots of little dots and for a little fairy fun, I gave her pink dots in her hair too. I love every opportunity to cute-ify whimsical images. In real life, I'm not enthusiastic about hair dye, especially candy colours that nature never intended for us, but on a sweet, little fairy it is perfect.

And in keeping with cute-ifying this little fairy, I used stardust stickles liberally in her hair, on her shoes and on her wings.

I highlighted the sentiment that comes with the Cookie Fairy image by cutting the sentiment using a spellbinders die from Labels Trio, leaving the paper in the die and using a copic marker to colour inside the die edges.

Snowflakes on a Christmas card are especially lovely. I used Create a Flake to cut and embossed these flakes. I also used a Martha Stewart punch so I would have snowflakes to layer.

Copics for this project; E40/41/42/51/55/57/59, R20/32/35/39, G0000/000/00/20/21, C0/2, colorless blender.

Good luck with the contest!
