Fairy Ring ;)


The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Anything Goes.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Isn’t Isobel – Fairy by Crafty Sentiments Designs just the sweetest?After colouring her with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers her wings and shoes were given a coat of Iridescent Medium for some magical fairy sparkle.Next she was fussy cut and added to a pearlescent card base which had been embossed with a folder.It started out as a 5″ x 7″ blank but the folder was for an A6 card so I trimmed it down afterwards.Rather conveniently there were indentations left from the embossing which gave the prefect lines to follow 🙂 I was going to colour the flowers in but having seen the effect on this type of card I decided to leave it as it was.So glad I did as once I added the fairy mounted on foam tape I thought she stood out beautifully.There is shading under her feet but the other shadows are from the lighting (think this shows the dimension).I cut three pearl flowers from a string and coloured the centres with a Copic Ciao Marker.The sentiment is stamped directly onto the base to complete the card.
