Fairy dust obviously works!

This card was for my GDT spot at Craft Your Passion for July.BUT the lovely Lauretta was so taken with it she kindly offered me a DT place!!Excited?Course I am!!!

This weeks challenge is to add real or faux stitching to your creation.

I got to use  one of Lauretta’s images ‘Sharing is so fairy good’ .Everything has been coloured using Promarkers.Except the skirt – I’ve paper pieced that and adhered it with silicone glue to add extra dimension.Diamond Stickles have been applied to the stripes on her wings.The papers are K & Co and the red and green card are from my stash.I’ve used a Martha Stewart Zig Zag Edge Punch on the green piece.As there is no way I can sew in real life I used a pokey tool to make some holes and drew on the zig zag stitching – even tho’ my gel pen decided to have a few issues!I found this lovely length of ribbon complete with faux stitching in my stash and pleated it a couple of times on one end.I added the sentiment from Pink Cat Studio.Both this piece and the one it’s mounted onto have been cut using Nestablilities Inverted Scalloped Circles.I used an inverted corner punch on the main image and added flower gems to finish.
