Thank You Fairy Much with Audrey

Hi there!  Audrey here with a whimsical fairy card to share with you!  As soon as I saw the new Pixie Dust set by Avery Elle, I knew I had to have it!  There is something so sweet and charming about these images... something magical, even for grownups. :)

I knew I wanted to make a purple card... I don't know what it is lately, because purple isn't usually a color that I reach for often, but in the last little while, I can't seem to get enough!  I started off with a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper, and I diecut it with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die.  Then I used an ink blending tool and lilac Distress ink, starting off in the center of the panel, and blending it out lighter as I neared the edges of the paper.  I stamped, colored and fussy cut out the fairy and a bunch of clouds from the same stamp set.  I adhered the bigger clouds flat to the panel, and popped the fairy and smaller clouds up with foam tape.  Magical fairies need glittery wings, so I squeezed a little bit of Stickles on my finger, and rubbed it onto her wings.  When they were dry, I bent them lightly forward to add a bit more dimension.  I stamped a scattering of stars on a diagonal, and finally, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set underneath the clouds.

Thank you fairy much

That's all for me today!  Be sure to check back again tomorrow for more inspiration from the design team!! :)

Thanks for stopping by!!
