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.
