Fairy Card for 3 Challenges
Totally Papercrafts #54 - Do It with Digis
Crafty Cardmakers #40 Fairies and at least 2 punches
Critter Sketch #53
The delightful fairy is a digital stamp from My Craft Studio - Violet from the Papercraft Library. She was coloured with Promarkers and her wings ans wand had glamour duct applied for a bit of sparkle and fairy magic.
I used three punches, all by Martha Stewart, to create the top and bottom borders for the sketch, which were overlayed with pink organza/satin ribbon (a requirement of the sketch), and a corner punch for the image and its mat and on the Best Wishes sentiment. The third punch was used to punch out the petals which were layered together to make flowers with gold glitter glue used to make the flower centres.
The card base is A5 in size made from pink card. A backing layer was cut from some subtly coloured paper which I have had for years. The was added to the card base with D-S tape and the various elements added to give the finished effect.
