dare to Dream...CR84FN46 57

Mona Pendleton | Saturday, January 14, 2012 @ 9:55 PM | , , , , ,

Hi there! Hope you are all having a great weekend! Maybe doing something crafty? It's time for a new CR84FN Color Challenge! Thanks to all who shared their creativity with us, playing along with CR84FN45. For nearly the next two weeks, we will be playing with the pretty pastel color combo consisting of Light Pink, Yellow and Neutrals. The beautiful photos used to create the graphic are courtesy of beccarillo photography.
 I made this girl for my dear blogging friend and Design Team-mate, Heather upon request :) I can share it with you because she's already in Heather's home!
Heather told me she would like one to her craft room so with that in mind, I thought the "dare to Dream" sentiment would be appropriate for a crafty girls room. Again, I pulled out and inked up some SU stamps that are at least 10 years old and combined lots of paint, stencils, rub ons. The dress was made using some My Mind's Eye patterned paper. I used the wing shaped dies from the Spellbinders Fallen Angel set to make a stencil then using molding paste, made dimensional wings.
 Thanks so much for visiting! For COMPLETE details, please visit the CR84FN site and for some fab inspiration, please be sure to visit the CR84FN designers: Suzanne CzosekLisa SomervilleStephanie KraftSue LelliDeborah Frings, Heather Jensen

Supplies Used:
Stamps: SU
Ink: Liquitex, Faber Castell
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee Vintage Vogue, My Mind's Eye
Dies: Spellbinders Fallen Angel , PTI border
Other: Various rub ons

I just LOVE her Mona. She has a wonderful new home watching over me in my craft room. I love the color combo and her beautiful wings. Isn't it great that those stamps that you had sworn off are totally usable again? It is nice to put them to good use.
Thanks again!

What an ethereal beauty! Much like her creator. The colors are so pretty. It mixed with the perfect amounts of black that you have it has not only given this angelic lass wings, but a bit of true grit as well. Amazing!

Oh my, I'm in love, this is absolutely stunning!!! I love it, the colours, the adorable angel, the inspiring sentiment!! I am going to have to have a go at something like this, although I have a feeling it would take a lot of practice to make something this gorgeous!

I discovered Kelly Rae Roberts whilst on honeymoon in California last year from here in the UK. I have been quite taken with these lovely mixed media pieces ever since buying her book and some of her lovely home products.

Amazing! TFS.
