Lavender and Lace

Good Evening to all my new followers and crafty friends

Today I have had a very busy but enjoyable day.  I have been colouring images for design team work and really enjoyed using my Copics I am hopefully getting better so just need to get them onto cards now.  That is the fun part deciding how to showcase them.

Tonight I have a card which I am going to enter into a few challenges.  As you all know I just love my fairies and butterflies and with this in mind I have made this card!  I hope you like it as much as I do.  I am going to send this to my best friend just because I want too.  I love sending cards just to say thinking of you!

Recipe & Method

1.  Base card is from Kanban Crafts I have used silver mirri card as the first layer cutting out a circle using my Spellbinder die.  The second layer is pearlescent purple card cut out using Spellbinder Scalloped Circle.
2.  Before laying these 2 layers down I wrapped white lace around the middle.
3.  The third layer is from my crafty stash that I made a while ago which I have used my marbling inks. 
4.  I used my oval Spellbinder die on Stampography card from Kraftyhands.
5.  Using FlitterGlu from IndigoBlu I stamped Fairy Whispers Silhouette Stamp from Joanna Sheen I then applied silver flakes and removed the excess.  To finish I have highlighted the fairies wings usinng Martha Stewart Glitters.  I then used Pinflair Glue Gel to attached to the card.
6.  To complete my card I have added a flower and 3 butterflies and the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by Today
Hugs xxxxx
