Moon Fairy.........

SOS Headquarters

Hello everyone: I haven't played with my Fairy stamps in a while so I made this card for the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge with a theme of "Sun/Moon/Stars", my teammates and I can't wait to see what you create.

This image is called "Moon Fairy", I stamped the image with Stazon black ink on a piece of Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper, colored it with Prismacolor pencils, then I die-cut it with a circle die. Before I even realized it, I had cut out that part of her dress that is hanging outside the circle, I was beside myself, I was wondering how I was going to repair this mistake, I had already colored the Fairy and was very happy with the results so, very carefully I fussy cut that little sliver of her dress and attached it to the image with double-sided tape, phew!! 
I added a couple of Rhine Stones to her wings and one to that star she's reaching for, I also added some Wink of Stella to her wings, her dress, the moon and her hair.  I tried to darken the sky to make it look like a night sky but I don't have the correct inks for that, something I need to remedy ASAP!!
The word "amazing" was die-cut but I don't remember where I got that die, the pattern paper is from my stash.

This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like. 

The sentiment is my favorite to use when I make Fairy cards, it's from an old Flourishes set called "Orchids" (by Marcella Hawley), the little Fairy in the corner is from a set from 49 and Market called "Friends Forever" but I'm afraid it's no longer available, I bought it a long time ago.

So I hope you get inspired to come and play along with my teammates and me at the SHOPPING OUR STASH challenge blog, please visit us to see my teammates' creations.

Thank you for stopping by.
Stay safe and healthy.

Sending virtual hugs.
