Add Some Gems

This month the challenge over on the Lavinia blog is Add Some Gems. For my card I've used this lovely stamp with the little girl sharing her secrets with the fairy, that I like to think is at the bottom of her garden. First I inked my background and then stamped my foliage stamps leaving the middle lighter. After stamping the girl and sentiment I added some stars stamped with a Stampin Up stamp pad that shimmers (it's difficult to see in the photo) and added liquid pearls to the centres, dusting them with glamour dust before they set. Finally I added some gems to the flowers around the fairy.



I cant believe that I've managed to blog two days on the trot, bet I can't keep it up.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Sue

Love the dimension on this card Sue. It adds to the magical feel of the faeries.
Thank you too for stopping by with your wonderful comment. I agree about the paper collections being difficult to cut into. I tend to look at them and visualize how it should look in an album. That dreaming process seems to free me to finally cut the paper.

Have a great day! NancyD
