Fairy Girl Forget-me-not

Evening all

I hope you have all had a fabulous Tuesday.  I have had a nice relaxing day, doing a bit more tidying in my craft room and colouring my stamps and digis.  Tonights card is a digi called Fairy Girl Forget-me-not by the very talented Artist Morgan Fitzsimons and you can buy her here.

When I saw this fairy I had an idea that I wanted to play with and I hope you like what I have done.  I printed the fairy onto Neenah card and coloured her in using my Spectrum Noirs I draw around the wings on Parchment and then cut her out and cut off the wings.  With the parchment I have embossed and coloured with Dew Drops Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.  I then pricked around the wings and cut out with my tweezer scissors to give a serated edge.


This is the completed card


This is a close up of her wings using Parchment

The backing paper is white card which I have stamped swirls in Perfect Medium and then using Cosmic Shimmer Iridescent shimmer powders dusted over the whole of the page.  I then stamped a couple of butterflies and heat embossed them in pink and silver embossing powders.  I layered this onto pale green silk art card and added my backing card.  I have added pale green ribbon down the side.  Using parchment again I punched out two butterflies using Martha Stewart punch.  I inked them using Dew Drops Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.  Down the centre of the butterflies I have added pale green gems.  The flowers down the bottom right hand corner I have added glossy accents and glitter.


Thank you for stopping by Today
