Morning - There is a new challenge starting today over at The Paper Shelter and the theme is a real favourite that you all love... Fairies! And there are some fabulous fairy images to pick from like this one I've used called Exotic Enchantment.
I was asked to make this card for a friend at work to give his wife for there Wedding anniversary - which when we looked was celebrated with wood - hence the little wooden hearts from Studio Calico that I have used. I also die cut the letters from Balsa Wood - This took a few goes through my sizzix with letters from Die-namics to cut right though but it worked pretty well.
The background paper is from My Minds Eye On Trend 2 collection and is a lovely navy colour with gold foil. I used a corner rounder punch on the base layer. I used the greeting from the same collections 6x6 pad and mounted this on pink satin to make it stand out. I also used this to make the little flag in the top corner.
I used some Diamond stickles on the wings of the fairy and a little Gold pen on the hair clip. Finally I added a few gems and dots of stickles to look like she was sprinkling fairy dust.
I used these Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour the image -
Hair - Buttercup, Pineapple Crush, Sleigh Bells & Raw Sienna.
Dress & Bow - Pink Mittens, Pink Carnation, Cerise, Magenta & Hot Pink.
Wings - Honeydew.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
