Butterfly Fairy

Happy Sunday to you all.

A card for the CES Challenge #20 - Angels and Fairies.

The main image is from a My Craft Studio - Silhouettes - Butterfly Fairy. She was coloured with Promarkers and cut out with a Labels Nestability.  The shape was edged with Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink. Glamour dust was added to her wings to add some fairy sparkle.
An orangey-yellow shape was cut out with the next size and finally the orange layer was cut out after drawing around the outside of the last one.
The card base was cut out from bright yellow, leather textured card with a Grand Nestability making sure that the cutting edge overhung the edge of the card to stop it cutting out 2 separate shapes.
Two butterfly stamps from Elusive Images were stamped randomly over the yellow card with Brown Archival ink. The same two stamps were used to stamp some butterflies on white paper. These were coloured with Aquamarkers and cut out.
Gold thread was used to weave in and out of the holes left along the top spine of the card and knotted at either end.
The card was assembled with double sided tape and with Pinflair Glue for the small butterflies on the corners.
