... 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.
