Graceful Fairy

Hello everyone,

Today is the start of a new Sugar Creek Hollow Challenge  and we have a wonderful sponsor this fortnight,  the A Day for Daisies digital shop. The theme is fairies or angels (no birds or butterflies) and your projects must be in a vintage or shabby style. Your project  can be a card or any other paper crafting item, such as a scrapbook layout, box, tag, etc.  The prize for one lucky participant is a  $12 gift certificate to the A Day for Daisies shop –  this is the equivalent of 3 images. What a wonderful opportunity to get some of Tammy’s beautiful images.

I chose the image “Graceful Fairy of Flowers” to use on my card. I really like ADFD beautiful images, they just speak to my style. The fairy was coloured with my water-colour pencils, fussy cut and then assembled on my card. The background for the fairy was created with Marianne Design Craftables lattice fence die and ivy corner die. I add several layers of the ivy to the corners. To add a magical touch I randomly glued some pearls to the card and some glitter on her dress. The sentiment is from Whimsy stamps.

    Ooo, sy is te pragtig, Amelia, so fyntjies en delikaat en so mooi ingekleur!! Die voeltjies bokant die hek is so perfek geplaas! Die fyn detail waaraan jy altyd aandag gee is so mooi!! Ek’s mal oor die blommetjies, veral die geletjies gee soveel ekstra vrolikheid aan jou kaartjie! Die blommetjies-kant lyk so pragtig en die ivy blaatjies is net so mooi!! Pragtige stukkie werk!!
    Groete
