Butterfly Fairy.....

Hello everyone: I just stumble into a new challenge while checking a friend's blog, it's called the Alphabet Challenge , every week they go to a new letter in the Alphabet, this is very clever so, this time the challenge is "B is for Butterfly". I have a few stamps and dies with butterflies but I also  have my amazing collection of plain rubber Fairy stamps my aunt gave me a couple of years ago, after she found them in a thrift store, in a box, dusty, dirty, abandoned and unloved. I think this images were made for me, I washed them and now I'm enjoying playing with them. I'm linking this card also to the Retro Sketches #208 and the Craft your Passion #305 "Always Anything Goes". Here's my card.

I followed the sketch from Retro Sketches to create my card. The Fairy is stamped onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored with SU markers and Prismacolor pencils.  I created a little landscape and I really tried to make it look like the sun was setting, since this Fairy is resting her head so I figured maybe she is going to sleep. I just sponged the sky with various distress inks and sketched the mountains in the distance, I colored them too with the markers. The "top" of the trees are done with the tip of a Fern stamp, the pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley.
I stamped the big butterfly from SU Papillion Potpourri onto water color paper and colored it with markers and pencils too. The golden corner embellishments are die cut with a Spellbinders die set.
I added a little charm that says "dream" and I put a lavender Rhine Stone to cover the hole.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is stamped with Rich Razzleberry ink and it's from the Flourishes set called "Orchids"
Here are the banners that inspired my card.
