Fairy Faye

I was trying out my new pencils my hubby got me for Christmas - I was happy with the image but the I couldn't find any design papers in my stash to go with it that didn't drown the image out! Eventually I found something :D
Once I'd coloured the image I cut it out with a Spellbinders die and  distressed the edges with Shaded Lilac in from Tim Holtz.

It's been mounted onto some design paper from Our Daily Bread cut with a Spellbinders die.

The shaped card is covered with some deep blue design card stock.  On top of this I've used design papers from Docrafts and First Edition.  The First Edition paper has also had the edges treated with Shaded Lilac ink.

Both design papers were distressed before mounting onto the card.

The image went on next and over the top of this some card stock cut with a Joy Crafts mushroom die.  I also used the Shaded Lilac ink of the edges of this.

My final embellishments were some butterflies from Scrapienic and some blue and pearl gems

    Thanks for sharing at Brown Sugar Challenges x

  2. I was drawn to the image on the challenge page of Crafty Gals thinking it was a single layer, full size image over the scale size of the card - WOW I thought that was new! Now I've visited the page, I can see the complete card - wonderful. But you have stirred something in me now, to try and create and card, single layer full scale image.
