Positively Pampered!!!!!

Hello everyone: Well, it's a very gray and drizzling day up here in NW Indiana but I have a sweet card that totally brightened my morning as I was coloring and putting it together. I'm linking this card to several challenges that I will list at the end of this post. In the mean time, here is my card.


This card took me a while to finish, I was just going to stamp it but this adorable Lili of the Valley little Fairy is obviously sitting in her little bedroom totally pampering herself so I decided to create the wall with this gorgeous pattern paper from the sadly discontinued line from Lili of the Valley, to me it looks like wall paper. So I stamped my sweetie onto a piece of Strathmore multi media water color paper because I had decided to fussy cut it and this paper is perfect for that. After I stamped the image with Versafine Onix black ink I colored it but I just didn't like the harsh, black lines on her wings so, I stamped them again but this time with Antique Linen distress ink and I did the "no line" coloring technique and I absolutely loved the way they look, more realistic and soft, just like a Fairy's wings should look like. Here is a close up of them I hope you can see the Wink of Stella shimmer.


Oh, so much better!!! I also fussy cut the image, her puff and perfume bottle were hard to fussy cut, thank goodness for my very sharp scissors, I used an exacto knife to cut the space between her shoes.
The frame is left over from another die cut, I always position the dies on the paper carefully so I can save the negative to use later, like I did here.
This is a picture of the finished inside.


The sentiment comes with this Fairy image and it's the name of this stamp.

Here are the challenges I will like to participate in.
