Fairy-ly glittery

It’s all about Glitter and Glitz at Digi Doodle Shop’s Best this week.Check out the challenge blog for full details on how to play and be in for the chance to win a $10 Gift Certificate for Digi Doodle Shop.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT’s fabulous creations.With the special offers this month in store now would be a great time to stock up on some beautiful images.There are quite a few new releases too.

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.

    Fantastic card! I love red, and the papers work beautifully with your gorgeous little fairy. I love how you’ve colored her and added all of the glitter (I didn’t think you could have too much glitter – lol). You’ll have to tell me what decoupage scissors are. Hugs, dj
