DIGISTAMPS 4 JOY :: NEW RELEASES : I'M SORRY FAIRY






The new releases at Digistamps 4 Joy include three fairies that I have drawn for you, and the first of these is called the 

Here is what she looks like coloured up and on a card:


After printing the image onto white cardstock, I coloured her using alcohol markers and a white gel pen, and fussy cut it so I could use as one of the layers on my card:


For the rest of my card I used:
white CS card base
lilac CS card mat
printed lilac/mauve DP, edges inked
metallic lilac paper ribbon
peel off silver border
offcut of a white CS diecut
layered paper flowers
sewn on sequins and beads
lilac and silver gems
peel off sentiment, coloured to match the colour palette of the card

(did you know that you can use your alcohol markers 
(Copics and Spectrum Noir's)
 to colour silver and gold peel-off's to match the colour palette of your card?)

I gave the fairy a good sprinking of Stickles (to increase her magical powers!)
