Licorice and Fairies...

Welcome to day two of the new releases for this fortnight at Little Miss Muffet stamps.  I think there were some hiccups with Blogger yesterday, so we didn't all manage to get our cards posted, but fingers crossed everyone will be up and running today!  Pop over to the Little Miss Muffet Challenges and Release blog to check the others out!

I have another two cards to share today... 

Firstly, here is Licorice...

This little sweetie is from the Sugar n Spice Doll collection and is available today at Little Miss Muffet stamps!  I have used papers from October Afternoon and Cosmo Cricket.  The flower behind Licorice is cut using my Slice machine and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.. I've had it in my stash for a while now.  I'm not usually a fan of green, but I do think Licorice looks good in green.  Licorice is coloured with copics (see below for details).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Creative Belli Challenges: The letter G (green for me)
Diva's by Design - Die cuts and punches
Stampavie and More - More than 3 layers
Stamps R Us - There was a little girl (second entry)

For my second card today, let me introduce Fairy Adela (and her puppy Dida) Inventing...

These new fairies are so much fun to colour!  The colour up so quickly!  I have based this card on a sketch from Make My Monday, but I did deviate a little bit...

The papers are from My Mind's Eye and the flourishes are fuzzy rub ons from Prima.  The bottom right corner flourish is my tribute to the floral theme at Make My Monday.  The ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  I have used copics to colour Adela and Dida (see details below).

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Make My Monday: Challenge #4: Sketch and floral
Flutterby Wednesdays - Include a butterfly, fairy or an angel
Truly Scrumptious Challenges - Challenge 60 - Things with wings
The Paper Shelter - Anything Goes

Here are the copics I used for these two images:

So, that's it from me this fine Friday folks!  I'll be back tomorrow I hope if our weekend guest trip doesn't turn out to be too hectic!

Happy Friday!

Love how you've done Licorice's hair. Very clever with the shine and particularly like the little shiny dots at the right hand side.
Ah, so these are your new fairies!

Oh my, what a great job you did coloring her hair! Nicely done, its almost the color of my daughter's hair, I need to take lessons from you! Very pretty creation. Thanks for joining us at Divas by Design!

These are both darling! Licorice IS good in green and I love how you embellished her card, especially those dew drops. ;D Adela is gorgeous in sepia colors and I love the corner embellishments and key added to the card. *Hugs
