Faery Ink GDT Application

Amanda over at Faery Ink currently has a guest design team call that I am so excited to apply for.

Here are a couple of my projects using her images.

My first project to share today was created especially for this GDT call. I used the beautiful Destiny Snow Faery.

I will be adding this over at Retro Sketches #189

My second project to share was actually the Octover Create and Learn Class I took over at Kit and Clowder with Alyce. I have learnt so much about coloring with Copic Markers from Alyce. For this project I used Gabbie Halloween Witchfire, isn't she adorable? After coloring the 5x7 image I created this door hanger for my trick or treater's to enjoy.

My third and final project for today is one that I shared over on the Faery Ink facebook group. A card for my dear friend and her husband after a miscarriage. I knew this image was perfect as soon as I saw it in the store. Angel heart hugs is so beautiful and peaceful, I know it has given a small bit of comfort to my friend. Thank you Amanda for that!!!!

And now that I have shared some fun projects, I have a couple of questions to answer.

  1. How did you find Faery Ink? I had seen Faery Ink images before on Kit and Clowder and my friend made this card for my daughters birthday in June. I fell more in love with the designs when I started coloring Gabby Whitefire. I have collected the freebies, purchased some favorites and recently won three of the new releases.
  2. What are your top 3 favorite Faery Ink images? Why? (please include the URL to the images in the Faery Ink shop) It's so hard to pick just three favorites, I love them all! Autumn Rose Scarf she's got a funky style that I could use for birthday cards for my friends and their daughters, project life cards & I know this is an image that my little crafter would love to color.  Superhero Arielle reminds me a little bit of the well know Wonder Women. Our house is full of super hero's, human dressed up as them, imagination friend superhero's, plastic ones, soft plush toys, blankets and wall hangers. Our son loves Batman and our daughter loves Wonder women. I'd be a bad mom if I didn't pick a hero. My third favorite is Dragonfly Nymph. I have a friend with a big birthday coming up. We are the kind of friends that can text every day or go weeks, months with out chatting and pick up right where we left off. She loves dragonfly's and I see lots of different coloring techniques that I would love to try out on this image.
  3. How many projects have you made from Faery Ink images? Three that are completed and shared above I have a few printed out and started to plan/color! Stay tune to my blog for more to come. Wanderful Creations
  4. What kind of projects do you like to make from Faery Ink images? (cards, art journals, boxes, candles, art for your personal use etc…) Mostly cards but recently started creating project life cards and mixed media
  5. How many design teams are you currently on?  This month (November 2015) I'm a guest designer for Ching-Chou Kuik and I've applied for a design team call over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown
  6. How many projects do you need to complete each month in order to satisfy your obligations to your other design teams? At this time all of my commitments are complete.
  7. Would you be open to a long term spot on the team? I would love to!
  8. Is there any month between December 2015 and November 2016 that you will be unavailable to be a guest designer? I am open to all months.
  9. Are you familiar with the WordPress blogging platform? No but I've been using Blogger since 2010. I'm quick to pick up different software with computers so I should be fine.
  10. How often do you post on Facebook? Almost daily.
  11. Do you participate in groups on Facebook? I do! I love commenting on projects that I see and love. I have joined groups of my favorite artists and stamps that I'm quick to grab when crafting. I want to see more projects of the images I'm using.
  12. What other social media platforms are you active on? (Please provide links to your profile at each)  Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram
  13. Is there anything you would like to add? I would like to thank you for this opportunity and I know whom ever you choose will do a fabulous job. I can't wait to see more projects out there with your artwork on them!
