A Fairy Just for You

Hi Bloggers

Aren't things getting madly busy? I keep forgetting things that I am supposed to be doing. This isn't helped by us having lost out entire address book with the demise of our old computer. Don't you just wish you had an old fashioned  paper version sometimes?

I have made this card to enter the  Butterfly Challenge No. 30 All kinds of Fairies. I managed to get some free  fairy stamps on the December issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine. So with a little free time I was good to go.


This card started with the beautiful paper on the top layer it just had so much fantastic detail. The back sheet was from a pack by DCWV it is pearlised so it shines.


I stamped the fairy with black archival and then I heat embossed her with some embossing powder that I mixed myself from black and silver powder. I coloured the wings by painting them with distress ink and them covering that with mica powder. 


I cut some ivy with my Sue Wilson dies from white paper and them I inked them with a green distress ink. 


So that's it for today. All the wrapping and address finding is beckoning.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
