Lavender Flower Fairy

Hello my dear Friends & Followers

Today is just a quick card I made today while catching up on things that needed my attention from while I was away.  I am still shattered as yesterday we had the plasterer in and you know the mess and dust that creates so I spent all afternoon and early evening cleaning up the whole of the house to bring it back up to my standard :).

Another bit of news again for you is that Marie has asked me to be part of her design team over at Desmet Designs.  Also I am now the International Coordinator for Scrapbook Stamp Society so guess who is going to be very, very busy.  I am so excited about all this and as a couple of my friends have said "It is my lucky year"  long may it continue :)

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is 8 x 8 pearlescent in white.  I have matted silver holographic card but before adhering to the card I have added lilac lace and then matted onto the white card.
2.  Using Neenah card I have cut out using Spellbinder labels 23 and stamped the lavender flower fairy and coloured her in using a combination of watercolour pencils and Sakura glitter pens.
3.  I distressed the edges using pastels from PanPastelUK in violet.  I adhered this to the holographic card using different depths of shaker tape so give it dimension.
4.  I have added gems to 3 of the corners and a ribbon with a butterfly charm.  The flowers and the gem spray were added using Pinflair glue gel.

I am entering this into the following challenges:

Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #120 - Favourite Things (Fairies, Lilac, Lace & Flowers)
