A sprinkling of fairy dust

Over at AiFactory Challenges the theme is ANYTHING GOES!A nice easy one coming in to Christmas for you.You don’t need an AiFactory image to join in but there are some freebies if you’d like one of their images.As we’re taking a little break over the Christmas holidays this challenge will run for TWO weeks instead of the usual one.You have until 11:59 EST Wednesday 29th December to upload your project.If you’re uploading your project from an online gallery please tag your project with AIF061 so that we can find it easily and  leave you a comment.So stop by the challenge site to check out full details.Don’t forget to take a look at the beautiful DT creations while you’re there!

Here’s a closer view of all the sparkle.

For my card I’ve used one of the adorable Sweet pea Fairies.You can buy these individually or as a whole set.She’s coloured with a mix of Promarkers and Copic Atyou Spica pens.I’ve applied Diamond Stickles to her wings for extra oomph.The edges of the flowers have also been ‘iced’.Gemstones cardstock has been used to give even more shimmer.Well,if you can’t go overboard with the glitter and glitz on a fairy card,when can you?Oh,it made such an enjoyable change not to make Christmas card.Mind you if you still have a few to make she could easily be adapted to make some pretty last minute festive makes.
