My Fairy Best Friend

Today I have a little card to show you made with one of Kim's new fairy digi designs, this one is called 'my fairy best friend' and I've coloured with Copics then added Stardust Stickles to the wings, stars and around the inked edges. The papers are from Czes' Spring Bouquet digi pack and I've inked the edges of them too with Spring Pansy Versamagic chalk ink. I've stamped the text ticket with Pretty Petunia Versamagic and made the flowers by punching from white thick paper, then inking with both chalk ink colours, dabbing with a Pearl Dabber and adding dots to the centres with an old Stampin' Up! marker in Almost Amethyst. I've added another new die cut border, punched and embossed the butterflies and finished up with pink pearls made with my new pearl maker pen.

My inspiration for making the flowers came from a tutorial on the StampARTic blog - they have some fabulous ideas and thankfully write in English!

I have a couple of challenges to enter with this card - the One Stop Craft blog are looking for fairies or angels, and my card layout is the sketch from the Stamp With Fun blog.

  5. Love the edging with the pearls - & that dark blue ribbon is beautfiully teamed with the blue in the papers - it really makes the little blue flowers more prominent.
    Love that inking technique on the flowers too - shall have to have a go at that too.
