TIOT18, MTTSC21 - Kyra and Candy

Happy Tuesday! I have another double challenge card today, and YES, I know Mother's Day is past! This is one I made for Mother's Day though, so I wanted to share it even if it's not right on time.
This week's Try It Out Tuesday Challenge #18, issued by Suzanne Dean, DT coordinator for Susana's Custom Art and Card Design, is to create a SHAPED card. Any shape, as long as it's not a square/rectangle. I had to put my thinking cap on with this one, and I decided to use one of the Pointed petal flower card templates from Mirkwood Designs. You can see all the SCACD DT projects on the SCACD store blog, or in the individual links in my left sidebar.

This little sweetie is another Faerie Song Art Stamps image, called Kyra. I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black, and colored with Copic markers. After she was ready I cut her out {a lot of cutting on this one!} and added her to the precut Nestabilities circle using dimensionals. I doodled the outside edge of the circle for more definition.

DON'T FORGET!!!! There are some new stamps coming to town and YOU could win!! This new line is called Victoria Case for SCACD and this release is called The Hearts and Hugs Collection. Each day this week Victoria and Susana will reveal a puzzle piece of one of the upcoming images - check it out!! The SCACD store blog and Victoria's blog will have candy this week consisting of an entire set of the new release -- so two chances to win! The SCACD candy runs through Thursday evening with the winner announced on Friday morning when the new stamps are revealed and be sure to be back to Susana's on Friday for the big release party.

The colors for this card come from our Twinkling Tuesday challenge {MTTSC22}. This week's temporary twinkie is Kimmie's son Nicky, who chose blue, purple and orange as our color combination for the week. I chose to use Almost Amethyst, Bashful Blue and Apricot Appeal as my orange. Be sure to check out the rest of the Twinklettes today for more color inspiration {links in my left sidebar}!

WOWZA you really DID knock this one out of the park! This is so cool looking and I agree, fun to see a non-A2 or even square shaped card as this is awesome looking. Your coloring is great, too! Beautiful!
