|Tinkerbell Card - Make a Wish!|
I made a card 5 3/4" square with black card stock. Quite a heavy weight card stock as my intended embellishments are heavy. I cut some Tinkerbell green card stock at 5" square and then stamped it with flowers using Tinkerbell green Ink.....are you sensing a theme here :-) Ok it was Peeled Paint distress ink and the stamp was a flowery background stamp from Hampton Arts.
I inked the edges of my card and then mounted it on my card front and then got to work with this little pearl maker. I have had this for a while in my stash and it was the first time I tried it. I have to say it was quite easy to use and the pearls looked just like the real thing when they had dried.
Next I cut a square of white card at 4" followed by a square of black 4 1/4" which I layered on to my card. That's not a white square I hear you say! I cut an inch strip off the side of the square and here is what I did with the rest of it after I trimmed an 1/8 off the long edge....
I have a very lovely book that I treated myself to that teaches you step by step how to draw fairies!
Here is my step 1
I then added the colour with my Peeled Paint distress ink and outlined her with a black pen (forgot to photo this bit)....too busy chatting!
Then I took 3 little bottles - Why are tiny things so darn cute?? I filled them with fairy dust (glitter to us mere mortals) and added labels and ribbon. I stuck the wishes to my card with Pinflair glue gel, made a 'Make a Wish' label and added a Making Memories enamel charm in that fabulous green colour!!! A couple of touches of glitter in Tink's hair and here is the finished result
I am off to my crop again now - how lucky am I two days to ....well...... mostly chat, drink coffee and eat cake with my pals but now and again we do do a bit of crafting as you can see. I am going to work on a layout today.
But before I head out I would like to say a really big thank you to everyone for their lovely comments on my last last weeks Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge. I was bowled over especially this morning when I logged on to make this post and found lots more lovely emails and the fab news of making the top three!!!!! So cool - a big big thank you everyone.
