Fairy Faye.

I was asked to make this card for a friend at work for her daughter to give to her younger sister.
She wanted a really girlie theme and I had been after an excuse to get me some "All dressed up" Images - so this one called Fairy Magic was just perfect!

I had already done another card from her Mum & Dad which was very pink so I wanted a slightly different colour scheme whilst still being fit for a princess. I'm pleased with this purple and yellow combo.
The papers I have had in my stash for ages - They are from Rayher and they are lovely and glittered but I don't know where I got them from. I mounted a different pattern from the same range on to the Yellow bazzill card and tied some co-ordinating yellow ribbon around it. I got a big reel of this stitched edge ribbon from Hobbycraft.
Once I had coloured my Fairy - I used a spellbinders die cut to make the topper. I added some diamond stickles on to the image to make her wings and the butterflies sparkle. I then added some Doodlebug stickers to spell out "Sister" and the words below the ribbon. I used 3d foam to attach the image so it stands a little above the rest of the card.

I used these flex & promarkers to colour the fairy -
Skin -  Antique white, blush, soft peach, coral & Spice with baby pink cheeks
Hair - Tan, Cinnamon & Cocoa.
Dress & Bow - Buttercup, Pineapple Crush & Mustard.
Belt, Wings & Butterflies - Blue pearl, lilac, purple velvet & maroon
