Fairies...

***WARNING: PHOTO HEAVY.  
LITERALLY A TON OF PHOTOS.***

So, I don't do fairies.  I really don't.  Not sure why, exactly, but it's just not something I DO.  BUT, when I saw this free digital stamp over at the Graphic's Fairy, I immediately knew I had to use it!  I've made a set of four cards.  I'll show you each of them, so this post will be incredibly photo heavy...bear with me! :)  I'll start with my least favorite and work to my favorite...you don't have to agree with me. ;)

First card & details~





Second card & details~





Third card & details~





Fourth card & details~





This set of cards for these fabulous challenges~




I started by coloring the images with watercolor pens and different inks.  After doing this, I sprayed them with my homemade glimmer mist and dried it with my heat gun until it was just a bit damp still.  After doing this, I dry embossed each one with a different embossing folder.  Then it I just had to attach my images to some cardstock and then place it on my embellished card fronts.  So easy, LOVE the effect!!!

Thanks for stopping by--I hope you like what you see!  Please join these fabulous challenges--happy stamping! :)

These are all so pretty! I LOVE how you did that glittery embossed effect..I may be trying that very soon! I really like the plate that you used to make the embossed flower. And you had me at Washi tape! That is one of the best products! :) And I like your fairies! Well done! :)
