A Little Fairy Magic

Another experiment by me :)  But first I'll do the image bit.

It's one from The Paper Shelter called Exotic Enchantment.  I've just used the fairy part from the image which I've coloured in very soft pink.  She's been fussy cut and once I'd got her onto the card I added some DecoArt loose glitter to her wings - well because shouldn't all fairy's have glittery wings :)  I then aded some rhine stones and some pearl Liquid Pearls to make up the fairy dust she's scattering.  Here's a close up of her.
The background of the card was a complete experiment - kinda went ok (bit messy and I didn't clean my stamps off quickly enough but that's a lesson for next time).

First I dug out my Grunge Corners from Lili of the Valley.  I've had them for ages and hadn't got round to using them yet.  I slapped on some gesso on the stamp (bought last month) then stamped the card.  Of course I had to wait for it to dry before I could anything with it.

I then got a couple of Tim Holtz distress inks and my watercolour pen (recently acquired) and made up the pink and brown border.  The look I wanted was a kinda spotlight effect in the middle.  I had to dry off the card with a heat tool then flatten it (haven't mastered the drying a card straight yet so it was a bit curvy - LOL!)

To finish off I've added some white papers butterflies which I bought from Lili of the Valley sometime last year and added some pink pearlised self adhesive gems.  And some tiny pink and white flowers from Hobby Craft which I bought last week to make it look like there's a blossom tree on her left.

So here you go my fairy walking through the woods.
Hope you like my experiment - I'm sure it'll go a bit smoother next time
