The Fairy of the Fruit...

I love making cards for challenges. I appreciate very much every visit and comment I get, because I think the ladies of the Design Teams give us much time looking at the cards and writing comments:)

Having said that, I will show you my new card...

Today I made a card with the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 148. I used one of my last drawings of my "Fairies Collection". I had in mind all the kids which do not like eating fruit. This is “The Fairy of the Fruit" which is telling us one of her secrets: the Fairies love fruit. I like 3D drawings on my cards, so I printed the image 2 times and cut out the fairy carefully. The background cardstock was dry embossed and highlighted with glitter. The designer papers also have glitter. I painted the drawing with watercolors little wings Shines with glitter and the fruit has a crystal finish. As embellishments, I also added to the Fairy’s hair 4 tiny rhinestones flowers.

Card Supplies:
Image© of EdithDesigns (me!), 140lb. watercolor paper, Bazzill cardstock, glittered DCWV The Linen Closet Stack, glittered miscellaneous designer paper, Caran D’Ache watercolors, Spellbinder Nestabilities Classic Scallop Squares, Cuttlebug Flower Border Embossing Folder, New Collection flower rhinestones, Acrilex Dimensional Glitter Paint, All Night Media Liquid Embossing, satin pink ribbon, light turquoise silk thread and my sewing machine.
