Just add water ...

... or at least something that requires water - paints, Twinkling H2Os, etc - that's the challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers.  And the challenge at Flutter by Wednesday's is an open theme but we have to include an angel, fairy or butterfly.

I've made a sweet little card just 3" × 3" for a sweet little girl - don't tell Kathryn, but this is for her!  Just because I love her.



I sprayed the base card with silver Cosmic Shimmer - just love that effect!!  I stamped the fairy onto some card and colour her hair and skin with promarkers.  I painted her wings and dress with Twinkling H2Os - sadly the shimmer really doesn't show up in the photo, but in real-life it's so pretty.  I found this sweet greeting on one of my sets and added the little butterfly for fun!  I found these lovely pale blue vellum flowers in my stash - they come from a Dawn Bibby kit that I've had for years!!  But I thought the fairy would be sleeping in a flower patch.

Stamps:  Papermania - Snag 'em - Fairy Wand; Kanban - Spring Silhouettes
Inks:  Memento - Tuxedo Black
Promarkers:  Blush, Satin, Vanilla, Primrose, Mustard, Raw Sienna
Twinkling H2Os:  Iridescent Blue, Wild Blueberry
Accessories:  Cosmic Shimmer - Silver Mist; Card and flowers from stash

Still cold and grey, but I'm feeling much better today and in a really good mood - love making cards!!  Just off to the shops for a bit - will be back again later.
