Well this image is just gorgeous, why don't I use it more often you may ask, I guess the answer to that is too many stamps and too little time! Hey Ho, stampaholics anonymous here I come.
I have stamped this image using a blue embossing pen as the ink as I have no blue ink pad anymore. The image is from a set purchased yonks ago, so I can't remember the make, possibly DCWV? But am very pleased with the finish of the print, so you can bet you'll be seeing a few more fairies in the near future. The sentiment stamp (layered onto some diecut flowers) is from Pink Gem Designs. Some wonderful stamps and digis in Janet's store, the link is at the bottom of this post.
I have used three DP's (DCWV and Papermania) I followed a sketch and applied some fairy brads (DCWV) to attach the mulberry flowers, which are papermania and prima. The butterfly is from my stash and I used a spellbinders shapeabilities decorative photo corner folder for the top right handside corner, I also embossed this but it is very hard to see in the photo.
I put two lengths of the same ribbon over the pale blue papermania paper and attached with small square blue brads, to add some more texture. Plus of course liberal use of my cats eye pigment chalks for edges.
This card is inspired by the song 'when you wish upon a star' by the blue fairy in Pinocchio.
I do hope you like this card as much as I enjoyed the making.
