Good morning folks, Friday is here again and we have a new challenge for you over at Polka Doodles which you're going to love as the theme for this week chosen by the lovely Emma is Fairies, Fantasy and Flitter. If you're wondering about the flitter bit, Emma is a big fan of glitter and wants to see a sprinkling of sparkle on your project.
I decided to turn a non fairy image into a fairy by giving her wings and here's what I made:
As you can see, I've made an easel style card which I covered with a mix of stripe and dot design papers in red, pink and green from the Pretty Sweet CD as I love their slightly shabby look. I mixed the stripe direction around too to make the most of the paper. I also sneaked in a couple of red glitter card strips for a subtle sparkly look.
I printed out the sweet little girl from Pretty Sweet together with the toadstools and a butterfly from the Sugarplum Daisy CD on to thick cartridge paper and coloured everything with Aquamarkers (a little artistic license with the toadstools and can you tell I was in need of a chocolate fix lol), adding grass with a fine brush as I wanted to make a little scene.
I cut out the little girl and the butterfly, sponging the butterfly with embossing ink and then heat embossing with crystal sparkly powder. I die cut a Marianne Design butterfly and coloured this with a blue Promarker before heat embossing with the sparkly powder. I cut the toadstool scene into a square and rounded the corners then inked with Tumbled Glass Distress ink and set on a dark red mat before adding to the card front panel. I added my little fairy and the butterfly with foam tape to complete the scene.
I finished off with some metal embellishments and pearls and a die cut sentiment from the Sugarplum Daisy CD.

Hugs, Fliss xx
