Fairy Wishes

I can't believe how long it has been since I have posted. I've been pretty busy and hardly stamped. I did create this card for a friend/neighbor's daughter's birthday.

I've had this fairy (Artful Inkables: Fairy Whimsey) stamped on my desk for quite awhile waiting to be put to use. I used lots of glitter/stickles on this card. You can't tell but even her wings have some sparkle from my new at you Spica clear pen. The blue scallop edge uses Distress Stickles, while the fairy herself uses Diamond and her hair yellow Stickles.

The Ballet Blue layer beneath the sentiment is actually two punches, a circle and ticket punched the four corners of a rectangle. You don't really notice it unless you are looking at it.

I used Dots and Daisies background stamp (SU- Retired). The sentiment is from Gina K's Make A Wish stamp set. The fairy is colored using Copic markers. It was stamped on Whisper White before I really grasped that you can't blend very well on that cardstock.

It is a simple card that I enjoyed playing with.

Stamps: Fairy Whimsey (AI), Make a Wish (GinaK), Dots & Daisies (SU); Ink: Tuxedo Black (Memento), So Saffron, Basic Black Marker (sentiment), various Copic markers; Paper: So Saffron, Ballet Blue, Whisper White; Accessories: Designer Label, 1 3/8" circle, ticket corner punches (SU), Various Stickles, at you Spica Clear, Oval & Scallop Nesties.
