I Believe in Fairies.....

Hello everybody: Who doesn't love Fairies?? I know I do and, every time I make a Fairy card, I want to believe this magical, ethereal little creatures are out there, somewhere, unseen by humans, living happily on my flower beds and in the back yard's bushes and trees. 

This sweet image is from a stamp set called The Beauty of Jasmine from the collection "The Flower Fairies" by Cicely Mary Barker. I love all of these sweet and beautiful images.
I stamped the flowers (I know Jasmine flowers are white or off white but I wanted a little splash of color) and the Fairy on water color paper with Versafine black ink and heat clear embossed it then colored it with SU markers. I sponged a bit of  Shabby Shutters distress ink on the panel and stamped some dots with the retired SU set called "Gorgeous Grunge" I added Wink of Stella to the wings but, you know how hard it is to photograph this stuff. The sentiment is from a Kraftin Kimmie set.


Here is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Orchids" and it's my favorite one to add to my Fairy cards, the sprig of Lavender and butterfly are from the Fairy set.

I would like to enter the following challenges.

Maria, I don't think I've seen such pretty and subtle colouring using just SU markers before. Such a lovely CAS design! The glittery wings do show up - they were the first thing I noticed! Sweet card! Thanks for joining us at The Paper Players this week.

Sometimes I think our dogs see fairies in the garden. It certainly is a magical place, especially when you look up close. Beautiful, Maria! I don't think you could have picked a better sentiment for the inside.
