Ivy Fairy

Welcome to my second card as guest DT member for Craft your Passion. This weeks theme is a recipe of 1. Ribbon or Twine
           2. Design Papers
3. Buttons
An the sponsor this week id Delicious Doodles and Ivy Fairy is one of there digi images. I think she is so beautiful, I have loved using her and she is so good she hardly needs colouring. So I have only just added a hint of colour using Tria pens.
 The card is back with a delicately patterned paper. My fairly has been cut out using a Spellbinders Die and layered onto a darkish green card. I have also added a little glitter to her wings.Well fairies must have glitter on their wings. Also I have done a second wing which is cut out and decoupaged.
Across the center of the card is a stripe of green card a different patterned paper and a broad grograin ribbon, and the stamped sentiment which has been cut with a punch and also layered onto green card.
I have then created Ivy leaves to make a frame round the fairy. These have been done by stamping them onto green card, I have used to shades of card, with Versamark and then dusting them with green Perfect Pearls powder. This gives them a lovely irredescent shimmer. I have sealed the powder with a little light spray of hairspray otherwise it tends to rub off when handled. The leaves are then cut out and arranged around the top of the card. I quite like this one.
