At last........ a card!
Hi Girls -
Well, this has been like laying an egg! I wanted to do an 'outside of the box' card - and after following my friend and fellow blogger Christine's instructions - coloured and cut the images over a week ago. Then came the re-organisation of my crafting space! Poor little fairy sat on the desk waiting and waiting....... and I seemed to be finding every excuse not to do the card! Very unlike me, but I was tidying and organising, rather than just getting on with it! Something about mojo etc...
Anyway, this afternoon I had an appointment cancelled - so an unexpected hour with nothing to do. Hmmm I could avoid it no longer!! So... I got out my OTT light to brighten the day and came up with this! What do you think?
The image I've used is Fairy Bouquet from LOTV and I've used my trusty copics to colour, with loads of prisma glitter on her wings, tiara and flowers. I sponged around the edge of the oval - and made a hash, so I decided to put some little loose flowers (MS Hydrangea punch) to cover my darker ink patch! A happy accident?
I used Bazzil as my background card - then used some paper I made (!) loads of last year using Starburst Stains. It's so easy but very messy to make and starts off with only copier paper. It has such a gleam though and was just right for this card I think. I edged it with Crystal Stickles glitter glue to give added bling!
I also used an MS punch for the lacy effect under the ribbon, and a Mariannes Creatable scroll punch for the flourishes. I finished it with a heart charm that I had in my stash from a few years back.
PS - I'm entering this card into the LOTV Things with Wings Challenge this week and the Stampavie Challenge, also http://ceschallenges.blogspot.com/
