hello Mr. Sunshine!

It has been so Beautiful this last week here! The sun is out everyday, and it is hot, hot hot! I LOVE IT!!
I recently bought a Tinker Bell Cart, but have not yet made anything. A friend of mine (& my hair stylist) is a HUGE fan of Tink, so I decided to try out the cart and made something for her! Here is what I came up with

I used black card stock and cut out the shape, than I used all the different colours to cut out all the little parts. The cart makes it pretty easy because the feature keys let you choose to cut the outfit, hair, wings etc. I cut everything at 9", and it all fits together. I cut out the scissors using the cart Happily Ever After. I put 3D crystal lacquer on the wings to make them shine. I also put crushed velvet on the pom poms (?is that what they are called? haha) on the shoes to give it a "fluffy" texture. I used a white gel pen all over the wings. Finally I added some Stickles to the boots, hairband and scissors. The letters were cut out using Opposites Attract.
I have to say that this is not something that takes only 10-15 minutes, it takes a LOT longer, especially for the first time. I think as I get better at it, it will take less time. The eyes were one of the hardest things to cut out and than stick on.
What to do for next time...
* measure out where everything is going, because I had some troubles with the legs.
* add some texture somehow on the outfit.
Hope everyone is having a great day/night!
