Today I am going to the NEC for the show and will be assisting Kay Rutter (Hougie Crafts) on E18. We will be setting up this afternoon ready for the show to begin on Thursday. If you are going please come and say hello it would be lovely to meet you.
I made this card using Elisabeth Bell's fairy stamps which is just beautiful. I have used her before and I just love her.
Recipe & Method
1. The base card is an A4 card which I have scored to make an A5 landscape card. This card is from Hunkydory and has some beautiful gold swirls and butterflies.
2. I stamped the image onto Supersmooth card and cut out using Spellbinder Fleur-de-lis Rectangle die. I coloured the image in using watercolour pencils. I have glittered her wings and used Spectrum Noir pen to colour around the lily pad. I then distressed the edges with Dew Drops Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid and then threaded ribbon around the decorative edge.
3. I used Spellbinder die to cut out the border which I again distressed using the above ink pad. I then added some gems to the edges.
4. I cut out the butterflies using Martha Stewart Butterfly punch on Pearlescent pink paper and pale pink patterned paper and alternated them as shown. Down the centre of each butterfly I have added pale pink pearl gems. On the right hand corner I have added white pearls in a swirl.
