Sweet Stampin' Fairies and Fantasy

Hellooooo, well it's that time again ---- it's Sweet Stampin' time.  

I hope you're all enjoy the beautiful spring weather here in the UK and hopefully in your corner of the world. It's so nice to see some sunshine instead of fog and clouds.  Anyhoo, back to Sweet Stampin' - our theme this week is Fairies and Fantasy.  So here's a little bit of fairy delight - isn't she cute.  I love these fairies from Sugar Nellie they're so sweet - they're available in both digi and in rubber .

Here's What I did
I embossed the front of my card base using a mask and used a little pan pastel over the embossed surface.  I find masks really versatile because you ink through them, dry emboss with them or use mixed media to emboss them further. I die cut 2 pastel coloured circle mats and a white circle with the printed little fairy on it. I randomly added pan pastel around the circle to give an ethereal feel with dots using Copic pens (mmm, not sure if I've added one too many of them!). The fairy was coloured with copics and fussy cut out and then gluede onto the circle. To finish off I added glitter and die cut flowers.

Here's everything I used:
Digi Stamp:  'Live Laugh Love' Sugar Nellie stamp available from Funkykits
Paper/Cardstock (CS): Create & Craft Pastel Coloured CS, Craftwork Card Shaped CS
Copics: Skin - E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, R30 / Hair: YR0000, YR000, YR00, E13, E99 / Dress, Shoes & Flowers - R000, R20, R30, R32, R35 / Wings - G000, G00, G02 
Dies: Tonic Circle & Scallop Circle Layering Dies, Tattered Lace 'Embellishments', Britannia 'Multi Rose'
Other: Glitter, Pan Pastels, Stamp Away Mask
