Fairy wishes

There is a sketch to follow at Craft Your Passion this week.I don’t know about you but I love sketches.It takes the problem of deciding on a layout but gives you so much scope on how to use your creativity to make it your own.Please click on the link on how to play along,for more details on how you can win FREE images and some fabulous DT inspiration.

For my card I’ve actually turned the sketch round 45 degrees.The image is What Are U Thinking Fairy from Lauretta’s Digital Stamps.I’ve coloured her with Promarkers bar her clothing.I printed her again onto coloured vellum and paper pieced her clothing to keep the transparent feel of it in the image.I’ve spread Diamond Stickles over the wings using a paint brush as it’s quite a large area to cover.I find it stops the card getting over wet and buckling.I then gave her hair a light sprinkling with any left on the brush.Shes been mounted onto a Squares Nellie’s Multi Frames Dies.The paper is from the free My Minds Eye pad in the August issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine and the card is Core’dinations Gemstones.The bottoms of both pieces have been punched with a Martha Stewart Hydrangeas Edger.For the strips on the sketch I’ve used three pieces of grosgrain ribbon.The flowery swirl is cut from vellum with a Cuttlebug Vintage die.I had my first attempt at making a beaded pin and I have to say I’m very pleased with the results considering my limited bead stash.I used a pearl headed pin,a metal spacer bead, a silver seed bead and some beads that are actually meant for little girls to make jewellery with.My MIL gave me them ages ago and this is the first time I’ve used them.Glossy Accents held it all together beautifully.I layered up some vellum flowers made from a Martha Stewart Stamp and Punch Flower.The leaves are made using the same punch and trimming the extra petals off.They are held together with a brad and mounted on foam tape which I stuck the pin into.The ticket is a freebie stamp from a past Craft Stamper magazine.
