A little bit of Fairy Dust.....

Hello everyone: The StampInkPaper challenge has a great sketch by Sandy that is just perfect for this sweet image of a Fairy swinging from a Cherry branch loaded by plump, juicy cherries. This image belongs to the brand new Stampin Up! set called Fairy Celebration. As soon as I laid eyes on this set, I couldn't wait to order it.  Fairies have been always a source of fascination and wonder for me, all little girls dream of Fairies, we start believing in them when we used to put our little baby teeth under our pillow for the Tooth Fairy to come and collect them and give us a shiny little coin, maybe it was a shiny silver Dollar or a shiny silver Peso and finding this coins in the mornings, was simply amazing.
I used to write teeny, tiny notes to my grandkids when they were little, I loved the look on their faces when they came to see us and tell us they got a visit from the Tooth Fairy.  Here is my card.


I stamped this sweet image onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter. then, I sponged the sky with distress ink. I stamped the cherries and her leafy skirt onto some scraps of Strathmore 90lb. water color paper because I wanted to fussy cut them to give it some dimension, I rubbed my bigger stylus in the back to "plump" them up a bit. I also used the Fairy Dust stamp from the set with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with gold glitter embossing powder.


Looks like she's shaking all of this golden Fairy Dust all over the place.  
The pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley, I die cut the image and the frame using the retired Labels Collection framelits set and did a bit of paper piercing with the matching mat, I love the way it looks.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card, the sentiment is from the Fairy set, the butterfly is from another gorgeous Stampin Up! set called Watercolor Wings. I stamped the Fairy Dust stamp from the set above and below the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Iridescent embossing powder, hope you can see it in this picture.


Here is the sketch that inspired this card.

    1. Thank you Debbie, I hope you get to use this stamp set soon, it's just so beautiful.
      Fairies are mystical and sweet little creatures, my granddaughters used to play in our back yard for hours building little houses out of twigs and moss and grass, make little dishes with Play-Doo.
      I can't wait till this set is ONE YEAR OLD so I can share it in our Retro Rubber challenges.
      Thank you for stopping by, my dear.
