Arielle the Camomile Fairy

Good Morning Crafty Friends, Followers and Visitors

A few weeks ago I came across some new digi's (to me any way).
They are gorgeous and fairies, I do love fairies as I am sure you all know.

This company is called Faeryink, I went to check them out and fell in love with this little cutie.

She is called Arielle and I am sure you will be seeing a lot more of her as well as other digi's from this company.


Step by Step

1. 6 x 6 white square card.
2. First layer is patterned card which I have added stripped card to the base before wrapping yellow spotty ribbon before matting and layering to base card.
3. I printed the image onto supersmooth and coloured with Copics and glittered her wings, I then cut out with SB Curved Rectangle die before matting and layering with foam pads.
4. I added the sentiment and a faux bow to the ribbon.
5. To finish off I added the flowers to one corner and added two flowers to her hair.
