Friday Sketchers Fairy

This week My Favourite Things is sponsoring Friday Sketchers with a $25 voucher, and Jorunn is hosting with a fabulous sketch.

I have used a Sweet Pea stamp – Glam Goth that I got from 3D Jean.  Isn’t she gorgeous!  I made a bit of a boo boo with this card, after it was done I realised the ribbon should have gone over the image, not behind.  Just as well as it would have hidden this gorgeous fairy.  So, as I had no intention of starting the card over I just ran a piece of chain across the image to under the flower then dangled a charm from there.  Phew, problem solved lol.

The white poppies and 15mm roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts, the little blue ones are mini rose cabochons that I painted with a coat of Shimmerz December Sky.  The twinkle is so pretty.  The cabochons feel like porcelain and the detail on them is amazing.  The image has been coloured with Copics – can’t remember which colours I used and I have lost the bit paper that I wrote them down on, sorry.  The paper is Onirie Sweetness of Living.

I distressed some seam binding with Tea Dye instead of Walnut Stain for a change, it’s much more subtle and perfect for the soft blue colour.

cv2

I used the Concentric Tag Die from Go Kreate for the sentiments, and the die cut borders are a MTF Die-Namics Dainty Lace Border die.  Love love love these dies, the detail is amazing and they cut beautifully AND they have little holes in so you can get your die cut out easily without poking the thing to bits!!  Sound familiar???  There’s also a Doo Hickey swirl die popped in behind the flowers.  Think you can see the cabochons better in the pic below.

Bea, Jeanette, Claudia, Tanja, Jacque, Janneke, Jorunn and Inge have made some brilliant cards from the sketch so if you get a chance do pop across to their blogs to take a peek.

Back later tonight with the Simon Says Stamp candy winner.

    I certainly do know what you mean about getting some of the die cuts away from the metal - there's a pin stuck in my cork board that's on permanent call!
