Away with the Fairies

Hey... so its been a while huh?! But like i promised in my previous post I returned

Today is friday which means that its dare day over on DCM. I have been taking an extended leave of absence whilst my life gets put back the right way and I am really thankful to the rest of the team for putting up with me....

This week our Guest Designer Gail has suggested a dare.. and she would like to see all things Fairy on your cards this week.

Well it just so happened I had been making. I am loving the gorgeous stamps by Whiff of Joy, and chose "Musing Melinda" as my image for this weeks card, ok so she is more an angel than fairy but they are a close enough relation right?

I started (as usual, some things never change!) with a white square card blank. I attached a strip of patterned paper (from craftwork cards) centrally down the middle. I stamped musing melinda using impress dye ink and coloured her using Letraset promarkers, finishing her wings with a little stickles in Icicle.

I matted the image onto a pink ruffle (also from craftwork cards). The flowers were an added embellishment afterwards as i got an inky fingerprint when i was 3D mounting my image.

Dont forget to take a trip over the the DCM blog to check out the other fairy creations and leave us a link to yours.

I will be back tomorrow with some more cards i made whilst in a colouring/stamping mood!

Take Care
