I still keep finding fun things I can do with my fairies...the scale of them is so perfect for alot of my other images. (Sadly, this was only a happy accident and not intentional, lol) Today, I paired a fairy with the sprout from the 'Thought I'd bug you" set. as I made this card though, I thought through some other possiblities like, a fairy riding on the "Pond Friends" turtle's back, or a fairy flying with the dragonfly from that same set. The lizard, the ducky and the snail also hold possibilities as companions for the fairies. Anyway, here is the card I came up with today:
First, I colored the fairy (with pencils & gamsol), added a bit of shine to the wings with a clear Sakura gel glitter pen and cut him out. Then, I stamped the sprout on River Rock card stock from SU! and added texture and grass using the 2 pieces from the Pond Friends set meant for background detail. I stamped the sprout image again on Caramel stock this time, colored it a bit, cut it out and layered it over the image on the River Rock stock. The same was done with the lady bug...stamped on red, cut out and layered, but then covered with a bit of crystal effects to make the shell shine. When I attached the fairy to the piece, I left the wings loose, to give a bit of a 3D look. To finish it all off, I layered the piece on Artichoke and Blush Blossom and bordered the main piece with a line of turquoise stickles glitter.
