LOTV Fairies on Tiptoe

Hi Girls.... well while I'm on a roll......

I decided to get stuck in today as my darling OH was at work!  So I did a bit more tidying of my goodies - then got on with a card!

Using Fairies on Tiptoe from LOTV, I coloured with my copics, then cut with my nestabilities - doing the 'outside of the box' technique again to accomodate her lovely wings.  I added plenty of sparkle with my prisma glitter, my DP was Prisma Marketing Fairy Flora mounted onto Bazzil Bling card, then I used the seam binding I bought from The Ribbon Girl this week to create a lovely bow!  I decided she also needed a diamante scroll - which I bought from the Harrogate show last Sept... one of those 'just because' purchases!  I added a few little flowers using my MS hydrangea punch (which I seem to be using a lot), oh and there was a MS border punch behind the seam binding!

I've spent a lot of the day trying to figure out how to blur the edges of my pics - and I've ended up banging my head against the monitor over and over as I'm really struggling with it!  If any of you out there know an easy way....... please let me know!!

Oh - I distressed the DP and added Stickles in Diamond - I love the look of the distressed edges.  Anyway - hope you like!

Now...... I've got to go and make a meal for my OH to come into at 8.30!  Chicken Supreme I think....... mmmmmmm I'm hungry!



  1. Wow another stunner Christine, love the colour combo..I have a programe called
    PhotoImpact 12..this does that but I,m sure you must be able to do it in Photo shop..go have a play & find it..LOL

    smiles Christine xx

  2. I have photoshop but it is easier to do in paint shop if you have it - image, add pic frame and there are loads of blurred ones to choose. Great image and colouring it
