fairy friends ...

stamps: friends forever from lili of the valley and for my family by stampin up!
inks: memento ink pad (tuxedo black), tim holtz distress ink pads (shabby shutters and warm lipstick) sakura micron pen and promarkers
cardstock: craftwork cards digi cardstock and a 5x5 card blank
extras: self adhesive pearl and liquid pearls (white opal)
I chose a cute fairy image to make a birthday card for my sister. I cut the matt to fit the card blank and doodled my border using the sakura micron pen. i then stamped the image and coloured it using the promarkers (to match the paper players colour challenge). I used the tim holtz distress ink to colour the card blank and added my matt. I hand shaped a banner with the sentiment stamped on, then glued it onto the card and embellished with an adhesive pearl. the final touch was some liquid pearls on the wings and the antennae for that extra magical feel.
