Magical day

If left to my own choices, I always seem to create totally CAS ( clean and simple)!
so, today I'm playing along with 2 different sketch challenges to help 
me get out of my creative rut.

The first one is Sunday Stamps Challenge.

The second one ( scroll down to find it) is The Paper Players.

also playing along with  

And since I'm at it , might as well link to
( far there are 440 cards posted! lol) 

Here we go with the first card:
My take on it:
 I started by using a square of water colored background that  I had laying on my desk .
The other day I was playing with some  Distress Oxide Inks.

Next I added some sweet little fairies ( Lawn Fawn - Fairy Friends),
colored them with Copic Markers and added Wink Of Stella - Clear to the wings.
Last step was to layer this up like the sketch and add a few 
crystal sequins for that special Fairy sparkle.

Hope you're inspired to try this fun sketch.

Now, on to sketch2:

Here's what I came up with:

This was a fun sketch to really pushed me out side of my comfort zone! 
Here's what I used:
Memory Box - Stitched rectangles
Reverse Confetti - Tag Die
summer treats  printed paper ( source unknown)
Simon Says Stamp - Ice Cream Dream stamp set
Copic Markers
Glossy Accents
yellow cord
