The Reading Fairy...

Today I will continue with my Fairies Collection. I want to show you the "Reading Fairy". I used the Mojo Monday sketch Challenge and I will also enter it in other Challenges. I drew a red-haired fairy (my favorite!) which is quietly reading a book in a garden. She has 3D effect and I painted her dress with a glossy pink color. The wings have white glossy paint and glitter on top. The square of the sketch, on the top of the card was made with a glossy cardstock, cream color. To highlight it I used the Script Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The sketch required a non printed paper on the bottom, so I chose to decorate it with Victoria Embossing Folder.


I like making my own flowers to decorate my cards. This time I used a flowers die from Provo Craft and worked with one of my embossing tools to give them some dimension. In the center I put a small bright little flower. I cut the leaves with the Home Accents cartridge, my Cricut and, of course, I added lots of stitches.
