Moving Along with the Times Challenge - Fairies

Stampin' Up! Fairy Celebration for MAWTT DT entry

This fortnight team A design team are sharing cards featuring fairies.  They are popular with young and old and always make me think of one of my favourite lines

"All you need is faith, hope and a little bit of fairy dust"

If only life was that simple!  Olivia and I are big fans of Disney's Tinkerbell and these cute fairies from the Stampin' Up! Fairy Celebration set remind me of her.  So my DT card is very simply stamped onto water colour paper with permanent black ink and then I have used an aqua painter, water colour pencils and some ink from ink pad lids to colour the images.  Using inkfrom the lid of  a Pool Party ink pad I created a wash background and let the images do the rest of the talking.

You can also see a couple of sneak peeks from the upcoming annual catalogue as I've used a card base of Fresh Fig and also some new cute embellishments that sparkle and regular readers know I'm a bit of a bling fan!  The matting layer of card stock is embossed using Softly Falling embossing folder although I've used the de-bossed side and some ruched Sweet Sugar Plum ribbon.

Do take a look at the other DT cards over at MAWTT and please do join in our challenge using the link tool on the MAWTT blog.

Thanks for stopping by.
