FBW110 - A Flowery Fairy

Flowers, flowers, EVERYWHERE! Our theme this week at Flutter By Wednesday is to use flowers on your card along with your fairy, butterfly, or angel. Kris suggested this fun theme!! I received this image from a friend (thanks Danni), and for the life of me, I can't remember the name of it. I'm glad that I found her because the size of her wings was perfect, and I love how they popped up on the card. I used Pixie Dust Shimmerz Blingz on them, and the sparkle is just right. The color of the prima flowers looked much better at 9 pm last night than it does in the light of day, so I apologize for that!! The designer paper is from American Crafts, and I purchased it from Paper Source, a fun store we have here in Charlotte!

Nancy - this fairy is the cutest! I love how you did her wings. I think her name is Jolene from My Favorite Things. The sketch and the paper you used are awesome too!

Christine said...

So sweet! The shimmerz is the perfect touch for her wings! I selcome color a fairy without some shimmerz on her wings!

Blessings,
Christine

Adorable!!! I love her shimmery, dimensional wings!! They look so cool slightly off the paper like that!!

Thanks so much for your sweet comment! The heart tutorial will be up soon. I did the flowers the same way. Basically I punched the flowers out of cardstock. Then I took the piece that I punched them out of and used it as a frame and decided where I wanted the colored flowers to go. Then I used the punched out flowers and traced around them (leaving a 1/4" margin or so. Then I colored inside the shapes. Then I used my punch to punch out where I colored. I then edged them with some Peony Colorbox ink and outlined them with my Stardust Clear gelly pen. And the last step was to glue them onto the image. Hope that wasn't too confusing!!

Randi said...

Opps, I forgot to add that if your flowers are overlapping..like mine were...you have to color on two separate images. That's why the outlining helps, too. So you don't punch into a part of your second shape! ;o)
