The Fairy of Friendship...

Today I will show you a new drawing of my little Collection "Fairies": The Fairy of Friendship.

This drawing represents solidarity and goodwill. I made this card with the Mojo Monday Sketch 146. For the background I used a gorgeous cardstock that has beautiful glossy flowers. I printed the drawing twice, for the 3D effect. For this, I cut with my small scissors, and much time and patience:) the small figures of the Fairy and two of the three girls.


I like to paint all the layers of the design and I painted them with watercolors. To the girls’ skirts I add a thin coat of glitter paint. I painted the Fairy dress with glossy paint and wings sparkle with glitter paint. The ribbons of cardstock of the background were dry embossed and I added a beautiful organza ribbon dyed in tones of turquoise and green. I added a small metal butterfly on the bow. Soon I will show you the next Fairy of my Collection!
