Canterbury Bell Flower Fairy

Hello my crafty friends and followers especially my new followers :)

Today is just a quick post before I travel down to Birmingham for the Trade Show.  I made this card yesterday so I could post this today.  I hope you like it!  As many of you know I love fairies and butterflies and I haven't used this little fairy in a long time.  Even though I won't have access to a computer while I am away I have ensured that there is a post everyday for you to see.  Have fun!!!!

Recipe & Method

1.  Base Card is 8 x 8 pearlescent card. 
2.  Printed off two backing papers from Flower Fairies CD from Crafter's Companion one in brown and the other blue.  Matted the brown layer first and I have used one of my punches to punch a fancy border on the blue and then added brown and cream ribbon around the border and layered this down. I have added 3 blue buttons.
3.  Stamped Canterbury Bell using Momento ink then coloured in using my watercolour pencils.  I have highlighted his wings with Sakura glitter pen.  Cut him out using Spellbinder Scalloped Oval die.  Distressed the bottom of the oval with Dew Drops Versamark in wheat and the top using Adirondak cloudy blue.  To finish off I have added brown gems around the scalloped edges.
4.  Looped some blue ribbon and fastened down using brown and cream buttons.  The sentiment is from my stash to which I have added to brown pearls.


Thank you for stopping by today
Hugs
