Make a Wish

This week the challenge at Lily Pad Cards is a color challenge and Kathy provided us with another beautiful selection of colors!  We also have a delightful sponsor Tickled Pink Stamps.  They provided me with the super cute image in my genie bottle... I selected Lil Pinkettes August, she reminded me of my girls and their music playing all the time.

My genie is colored using copics and highlighted with the white gel pen. There is also a little shading with watercolor pencils.

The bottle is sponged with orange dye ink and stamped with Hero Arts Lace using pink ink. I highlighted the flowers with the white gel pen.

I traded her headphones out with a fancy flower so she could fit with my bottle.  I thought she was sitting so sweetly and that she would make a great genie in a bottle. The bottle is a Silhouette shape which I cut multiple times to create the acetate center and the orange tops and bottoms.

The inside of the card says "Have a magical Day!".

Here are the inspiration colors:


All the details of the challenge are at the Lily Pad Blog

Hope your day is magical too!
