Pixie Nerd

Wednesday, May 21, 2014

My DD's school had Awards Day today, and she won the award for highest number of AR points for the entire school again (1504.6!). When the award was given, the assistant principal said that my daughter is known around school as the "AR Queen," because she reads constantly and loves taking the AR tests. Well, when I saw this digi stamp, from Saturated Canary, there was no way I wasn't going to use it for one of her teacher's cards this year! The image is super cute and sassy, and the sentiment is SO my daughter! ;)
Can you read the sentiment? It says, "Dude, pixie dust is for amateurs. I read books. That is where the magic is." It was perfect! I love it so much, I'm probably going to make my DD a set of notecards using it, as well a a little book for her to keep her friends' contact info in. One thing is bugging me about the image, though. See those strapy things hanging below her dress? Are they part of her dress or straps from her bag? Every image that I've seen colored has the straps matching the dress, but, to me, they look like straps from the bag, with those little buttons on the ends. It's a mystery. ;) 

The card design is based on the Viva la Verve May 2014 Week 1 sketch, and I colored the image with Copics. The gray spots are actually dots of a clear Spica pen. IRL it is sparkly and pretty, like pixie dust might be. 

See you in a few...I'll have another Pixie Nerd card in just a little while, completely different from this one.

Your pixie and teacher cards are adorable, and I love the sentiment with the pixie cards! Hmmm... now you've got me puzzling over those straps. I'm thinking maybe they are part of the book bag, though at first glance I thought they were part of the dress. I vote for book bag. Busy times, fabulous cards!

So sweet! Perfectly colored and I just love those sequin accents.
