Hi folks! Here is the flower fairy that I promised last week. Yes I know I'm a bit late in getting it posted. No excuses I simply got distracted making a shelf unit for my 12 x 12 papers. I am a bit of a recycler and what with having recently moved home, having lots of good boxes just going into storage I decided to cannibalise one and forgot to do the post. Sorry xxx
Ultimate Pro from Crafter's Companion I scored along one line (Tri Fold). I then moved this scored line up to the curvy line, scored then cut out along this line. This then gave me a larger back to my card with just a bit coming over the front. (roughly 8 x 8). I then took a piece of A4 Acetate trimmed this down to fit behind the front fold and stuck it in place with double sided tape. Not having any 8 x 8 inserts or envelopes at the time I obviously had to make my own. So glad I always have 12 x 12 paper for envelopes which I make using the Ultimate Pro. I used A3 Art paper to make the insert as I wanted to have the main picture on the front of the insert without any ink showing through.
So I stamped out the Flower Fairy in Black Archival onto Post-it Note ( I had to do this a few times as the fairy stamp is quite large). Also the corner flowers. I then cut them out and put them to the side on a spare bit acetate ( I always keep a bit on my work desk just for this reason). The Fairy is Almond Blossom from Crafter's Companion. I then stamped the fairy onto the front of the insert and also the corner flowers.
I coloured in the flesh using a Blush Pro Marker and then using my pencils shaded in the fairy and the flowers.
I then covered the fairy and flowers with the Post-it notes and shaded in a bit of a background. I used a Clarity Stamp Tree and Whispers Sage for the trees and the bushes. I then stuck this in to the base card.
This is definitely not the best photo I have ever taken but it is the best one without the Flash reflecting off the Acetate. Here it looks dull instead of looking delicate.
I finished the card off with a pale green gauzy ribbon down the left hand side and tied with a double bow and guess what? Camera died on me so I couldn't get a picture of the finished card or the matching envelope! Typical! I hope you like it anyway.
