Sitting fairy-ily comfortably

The Power of Three is the challenge at Craft Your Passion this week.So you must use 3 of something in your creation…3 papers,buttons,flowers etc.We have the fabulous Milk Coffee and Crafty Sentiments as our sponsors.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used the beautiful Scilla Fairy from Crafty Sentiments and coloured her with ProMarkers.Her wings have been coloured with Copic Atyou Spica pens.It’s a shame it’s so hard to capture the sparkle of these on camera – they really do IRL.The papers were a freebie in the last issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine.As her dress has a leafy feel to it I thought they would compliment it perfectly.The ribbon she’s sitting on is also a previous freebie from the same magazine.A piece of cheesecloth has been placed behind her to soften and break up the backing paper without covering it up.A lacy punch and die cut have been used for a more delicate look and no fairy as lovely this would be complete without some flowers and a bit of bling.My 3’s for this card are 3 gems,3 leaves and 3 3-layered flowers.
