I had better post this now or I'll have missed Creative Card Crew's deadline for Linda's 'Fairy nice day' challenge. Still have lots of time for Flutterby Wednesday on Danni's blog who also has the theme of fairies or butterflies along with pink as it's her favourite colour.
I got the sketch from Mojo Monday and Cupcake Crafts are asking us to make cards with curls and swirls - phew!
As you can see it's a bit different to my usual thing, I had someone in mind when I made this and she's not so into all the cutesy and bright stuff I normally do! The fairy stamp was a freebie with Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine (I think), shaded with ProMarkers and highlighted with Glamour Dust.
The gorgeous patterned paper is off a Bearly Mine CD I won on a Stamptacular challenge, it's packed full of papers and such a fab prize. The flower was also a freebie that arrived in a parcel with some stamps, it had a huge yellow centre which I removed and replaced with a pearl brad.
My swirls are embossed on the two strips and sanded back to show the white core.
The pink pearls are actually hot fix gems but can I find my Bejeweller? No so I used a brush, glossy accents and I think I stuck my fingers together more than I stuck these down!
Hope you like it
