Fairy love ...

... the challenge over at Flutter by Wednesdays - FBW141 this week is to make a card that features an angel, fairy or butterfly, but it must also include at least 3 hearts.  I picked up the latest issue of Creative Cardmaking from my local craft shop on Friday last week - and the free papers featured fairies!!  Voila!!



The papers have been designed by Debbi Moore - they are absolutely beautiful.  The kit comprises papers, toppers, decoupage, tags, pop-out toppers.  I decided to use this very pretty and somewhat wistful looking fairy in blue and lilac.  I cut out a piece of matching backing paper, to emphasise the edge I used Chipped Sapphire.  I attached the topper using dimensional tape and added glue pen to the swirls in her wings and the stars - I then added lots of glitter.  The topper has such sparkle.  I punched out 7 hearts in coordinating shades of blue, purple and lilac - some holographic, some satin, some plain mirri - and made them into a heart flower which I mounted onto the topper.  Finally, I added the sentiment - which seems to go with the expression on her face.

Stamps:  Hero Arts - Clear Design "I" stamps
Papers:  Fairyland Papers by Debbi Moore (free with Issue 25 Creative Cardmaking)
Inks:  Distress - Chipped Sapphire
Accessories:  Card, paper from stash; X-cut heart punch

As it's Valentine's Day we're having a special tea- our last together for quite a while as tomorrow Jonathan leaves for India.  In the meantime, this evening Jonathan's off to camera club - it's a competition night and he gets to find out how his pictures have done!!  And Kathryn and I get to play!!

I know of the concept of making flowers with heart punches but haven't seen too many about - this is a lovely reminder & example of how to do it & how effective it is. Hope Jonathan did well at Camera Club.
