Fairies ......

Ooohhhh It's almost Christmas .... but lets think about Fairies today.

Over at Crafting For All Seasons the latest challenge is ...... CANE TOADS ... only joking it's not about ugly cane toads but about beautiful FAIRIES.

We are being sponsored by :-
The Stamping Boutique -
Whoopsie Daisy -

The Stamping Boutique are giving our winner a fabulous prize consisting of 3 digis or 1 digital paper pack of the winners choice.

For this card I have used an image from Whoopsie Daisy from sheet #199 ... isn't she a cutie.  I have coloured her in copic markers.
Have used some Spellbinders dies to cut the fancy edges on the cardstock and a Cheery Lynn Designs die for the butterfly ...... yep I have been getting some new toys :)  All the dies out there!!! they are so gorgeous ... I'm slowly building up my collection.
For the green glittery strip across the centre I used some double sided tape and poured glitter over the top.  I don't know about you but glitter falling off everywhere drives me NUTS! so I experimented by running some Ranger Glossy Accents over the top.  It worked splendidly!!!  Not only is there no glitter falling everywhere but it also looks so shiny and the feel of it is lovely.

For my second card I used this gorgeous image from Stamping Boutique called Swan Song.  I must admit I was quite nervous about this image and really didn't know where to start ...  I have used copics to colour the image and also a Faber Castell Glitter glue on the wings of the Fairy.  I used a new embossing folder from Craft Concepts called Debonair Edges and another butterfly from the Cheery Lynn set.

 I trimmed my card in an unusual shape because I just wanted something really different to help make this image 'pop'.

Don't forget to head on over to Crafting For All Seasons Challenge Blog and check out the gorgeous Fairy cards made by the DT.  And if you enter your own card you could be the winner of the fabulous prize!.
