Christmas fairy

   I wanted to use paled down versions of the traditional Christmas red and green for this card.  I distressed medium green embossed core'dinations cardstock and wrapped pink ribbon round it before matting and layering it onto pink mirri card and white card to form the backdrop for the image.
   The image is from lacy Sunshine and is called Sugar Plum Fairy Ethereal Enchantress. I coloured her hair and skin using Promarkers but for a lighter and shimmery effect I chose Twinkling H2Os for her clothes and wings. I cut the image out using a Spellbinders lacy oval die and once it was attached to the card I applied pink and green Liquid Pearls to the rim. Finally I added two bows and pink peel off snowflakes to the card.

  2. Your card is lovely Crafty, the colour scheme is wonderful. I like the cute image and you did a great job with the colouring. It was a good idea to use the H2Os... it makes her look soft and ethereal... just like a real fairy!
