Be Brave...Part 2

Hey there journey friends!  I'm back again with another card for my BeBrave box!  I'm participating in the card drive above and this week, I used the October Bloom Box set.  I love this set for THIS purpose..It's a perfect fit!  I also incorporated the scripture from the Trust The Lord stamp set.
So to start things off,  I was inspired by the card sketch challenge at Watercolor Wednesday.  Check out Heidi's fun sketch:
I loved the painted pattern in the background and decided to use that as my starting point.  LOVE kraft cardstock so I incorporated that as my stamped panel.

I had fun creating the background using some FSJ acrylic paint.  I applied some Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust over the paint to give it some bling.  I also added some Sparkle Dust to her fairy wings. If you look closely, you'll see I also added some Star-fetti elements on the fairy panel.  A little flick of Gold and Silver Silk as well as some black and pink thread added whimsy.  
It was a bit tricky to add the sentiment in the way the sketch was designed.  I tried vellum but my sentiment was too wide and it just covered too much of the fairy.  I decided to incorporate the sentiment anyway (I love it so) but modified it a bit to allow for more of the fairy to be seen.
In hindsight, I probably would have used a smaller Circles diecut so that the paint would have shown more...but I have another panel just the same and I'll be trying again.  I loved using my Sweet Berry and Butter Cream acrylic paint.

I used the following Copic colors to color the fairy:
Thanks for stopping by today!  I'll be back soon to share another card I'll be placing in my BeBrave Box.   I hope you consider joining the card drive.  Send a card...or two...or three!  :)
