Blue Fairy

Morning everyone, this is my first of 2 posts today and it's my entry for June's Dezinaworld challenge with a theme this week of Fairies.
I decided to go for a fantasy style fairy and have used one of the lovely images from June's Blue Beauty Collage Sheet.
I just love this pretty lady and resized her slightly to fit my card. I made a background panel for her by stamping one of the roses from the Clearly Inspired Stencil Flowers clear stamp set with Whispers Mossy Stone dye ink and cutting out round the roses to create a shaped panel.
I made the background paper by stamping the large rose spray all over beige parchment card (Southfield Stationers) with Encore Metallic ink in blue and embossed with Blue Pearl powder. I then sponged on Bundled Sage and Crushed Olive Distress inks. I trimmed the edges with deckle scissors and stuck to a square card then added some French vintage bias binding which I found a while ago in a flea market.
I stuck the fairy panel on with foam tape and finished off with an epoxy sticker and some flowers with a sticker centre.
