Faerie Poppet 2

Hello Crafters !   I hope your week is going well.  I'm back with a card that I created for one of our Granddaughter's birthday.

I used another fairy from my Faerie Poppet - Fairy 2 set by Creative Expressions &  I managed to use Designer Papers from my stash.  Because I like creating backgrounds with inks & stamps, most of the time my designer papers are sitting here just 'looking pretty'.    But I also love beautiful paper  :)

I stamped one of the fairies from the set onto watercolour paper with Black StazOn Ink.  There is a lot of detail on these stamp designs which I coloured using Tom Bow markers direct to the paper and blending with a brush & water.    I added some holograph glitter to highlight a few areas.    I layered the card & added Crealie leaves & flowers as shown in photo. 

The DP is from a Basic Grey 6x6 pad - Sweet Threads.   I also used Crealies CL CS 12 & CL CS 11 Shapes and CL CF 18 Flowers;   Spellbinders Nestabilities S4-347;  Crafts-Too Embossing Folder - Daisy & Swirl.

That's all for now !
Thanks for your visit, it's appreciated.  Have a great day.

Hi Shirley,
You created a beatiful fairie poppet world in a card.
I love these stamps and did you already take a good look if the fairies are not hiding themselves in your beautiful garden??
Thanks for your lovely comment on my blog and it is good to know that you like my beautiful Holland.
