I’ve used the gorgeous Fairy & Daisy from Digi Doodle Shop. She’s been coloured with Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils blended using cotton buds for a softer finish.I only applied colour to the inner parts of her wings before blending out to give a more delicate feel to them.After allowing the fixative to dry I sprinkled Crystal Glamour Dust over her wings,the edges of the flower and underside of the leaves.I cut her out using decoupage scissors,curled the edges slightly to give dimension,then popped her on using Pinflair Glue Gel.I wanted it to look as if the daisy had sprouted there as part of the paper.The paper and chipboard piece are from this months Cardmaking and Papercraft Country Diary freebie.They both had a good coating of Crafter’s Companion Gold Spray and Sparkle as have the red brads.I think I went a little OTT with it but if you can’t go mad with the glitter on a fairy card when can you?!!I finshed with some gorgeous,shimmery organza ribbon and some sparkly gems.Supplies : Image : Fairy & Daisy from Digi Doodle Shop Mediums : Koh-I Noor Gioconda Soft Pastel Pencils,Winsor & Newton Artists’ Fixative,Crafter’s Companion Gold Spray and Sparkle,Crystal Glamour Dust Papers & Card : Country Diary freebie from Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine, Papermania Textured Capsule A4 Colossal Pack Tools : X-Cut guillotine,Fiskars Scallop Sentiment Border Punch,Decoupage scissors,Gel Picker to apply gems from Pizzazz Aplenty Embellishments : Dovecraft Cream Organza Ribbon,Brads from Papermania Red & Pink pack,3mm red gems from Pizzazz Aplenty
