Swingin’ Sugar Lily

When I was pregnant with my son two years ago, I saw one of Doodlebug Design’s full page ads in a stamping/paper craft magazine. It was this awesome aquatic display of fish and sea life, done with their line of sugared papers. I knew we were doing a sea theme for the room and I had to have these papers. I found a retailer and ordered a bunch of colors. Ultimately, his room is adorable with fish, turtles, seahorses and jellyfish cut out of foam board and covered with the sugar paper. They still sparkle!

Anyway, I still have paper left over and I still love the stuff. Just over a week ago a challenge was posted on the Pink Cat Studio blog. It was to make a rectangle card (I can do that), use two different pieces of patterned paper (I suppose I can do that), and cut a square and a circle for each piece of paper (oh, forget it!). I tried and tried to work in the right shapes and I just couldn’t make it go the way I wanted it. I was never good at geometry. So, I decided to use my image for one of the Stampin Out Alzheimer’s challenges.

Paper Makeup Stamps (PMS — that always makes me giggle) sponsored a challenge to make a card or project using any winged thing. I colored Lily with Copics and added some Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz to her wings. I kept the layout really simple because I wanted to show off the sugared paper. One tip for the paper – regular adhesive won’t hold when you are adhering something on to it. Scor-Tape works great!
