Dilly Beans: Frida Kahlo & Jellypark: Stamp Spotlight

Good morning, friends!  
Today I have a card for our new challenge at:

I am entering my Friday card into the following challenges:

Crafts Too Challenge You: Choose Your Decade or Era (I chose the '50's, for when Frida passed away)

Come see how we celebrated Frida's life in our artwork - we have a couple of links if you're interested in reading about this Mexican artist, too.  I used #340: Frida's Sugar Skull, colored with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits and Stickles and then fussy-cut out and layered onto this pretty Halloween paper from Echo Park.

We also have a Stamp Spotlight post for you today at:

Our spotlight image this week is the lovely Dancing Fairy:

I am entering my fairy card into the following challenges:
 Aud Sentiments: Two Words (discover yourself)

I printed my image directly on the DP, then paper-pieced her dress and colored the rest of her with Prismacolor pencils & mineral spirits.  I added some Dazzling Diamonds Glitter (SU!) to her wings, wand, and shoes.  Papers are from MME - I added a couple of ribbon tags, some little pink gemstone stickers, a charm, and the text stickers are from Tim Holtz Idea-ology line.


  1. Love both cards Jenn and I went and looked up Frida as the image inspired me to do so. I shall have to look at more of her work.
    Thanks for linking to the Crafts-Too Decade/Era Challenge for this month.
