Fairy Dogfather

No,it’s not a typo – he’s a dog,he’s a fairy and his gender makes him a father!

I’ve used another stamp from the Fairy Friends set by Pink Cat Studio.I’m on a mission to use stamps that have never been touched by ink ATM.We’re going on holiday soon and I’m on a craft spending crash diet.I really need to buy clothes instead – what a waste of money!Anyway back to the card.He’s been stamped in  Rich Cocoa Memento and coloured with Promarkers and I’ve highlighted his eyes and nose,the bone and the wings with white gel pen.Because this is a boy’s card I used Glossy Accents on his wings instead of the usual glitter type stuff.GA has also been added to the same areas the gel pen was applied to.I printed a selection of background papers from The Wobblers CD-rom by Kanban onto white card.I pierced around 3 of the edges on the background piece and drew faux stitching with more gel pen.I cut a variety of Standard and Classic Scalloped Circle Nestabilities and repeated the process around the edges of those.The topper has been mounted using foam tape.I adhered the sentiment,from the same stamp set,onto the smallest scalloped circle and lay it over felt cut with a Sizzlits Curly Decorative strip.This card has been made for a friend of my youngest son,who will be 6 tomorrow.I try to keep it a bit simple with kids cards and just add some interesting accents.
