Mid -summer fairy

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!!

  1. Blues and yellows are so typical of Summer and suit this stamp so well . The stars add extra dimension to the design and you have positioned them so well on the oval .A ‘magical ‘ card good luck jenny
