In the past I have always coloured fairies in pink or lilac – but when I saw a challenge for blue and yellow I thought – why not do a fairy card in those colours. I used the LOTV image – Midsummer’s Night – which I coloured with Promarkers – and glittered the wings with Stickles Icicle. Then I teamed the image with yellow spots and blue stripes papers. I embossed blue card with a stars embossing folder, cut out silhouette star dies – glittered them – and placed them over some of the stars on the embossed card. You can see the glitter on the photograph – but only just!!!
I stamped the image onto a Spellbinders Decorative Oval die, which is my favourite die for showcasing girlie images. It’s pretty and decorative – as its name suggests – but it is also versatile. I can use the whole die, but sometimes I cut around the perforations, or just on the outside, or just inside – which gives me another oval to play with. Sometimes I place the cut shape onto another decorative oval in a coordinating colour. That die was definitely a good buy!!
What I used –
LOTV image – Midsummer’s Night – coloured with Promarkers, and wings glittered with Stickles Icicle
Spellbinders die – decorative oval Memory Box die – cosmic stars Embossing folder – starry eyed – from Crafters Companion
Papers from my stash and gems from my stash – coloured with Promarkers
Small sentiment tags from LOTV
