Away with the Fairies
Now, I must admit this one scared me rather a lot! I just don't "get" all the fairy stuff and fairies just don't feature on my crafty radar. I spent hours googling for some inspiration. Actually I had an idea that it would be a fab opportunity to have a go at some of those artsy collagey thingies that I sww around and often admire. But I spent so long googling to see if I could work out some idea of where to start that I totally ran out of actual crafting time oops!
There was one point when I was seriously thinking about making a Fairy Liquid bottle shaped card - yes, I was really getting desperate. So in the end what we have here is a bit of a mish-mash. The bathing belle who is the body of my fairy is a free download - I'd give credit if I could remember where I found her - I think it might have been from Gaby in Brazil, but I looked at soooo many sites I can't be sure! I made the wings template, pkus the picture frame with my Craft Robo and the flowers are made with punches. All the paper is Basic Grey's Two Scoops. I hand cut some of the swirly patterns from one of the papers as I didn't want to use just a patterned paper background for this one. The only other things I used here were some Stickles and a little bit of inking If you flutter on over to the Daring Cardmakers Blog, you'll see some wonderful Fairy themed cards, and I can't wait to see what all the Darers come up with this week, I'm sure there are going to be some Fairy Nice Cards to see!
