Welcome Summer with Garden Fairy

Good evening and welcome to my blog. I made a card on the weekend using CLP (Crafting Life's Pieces) June layout with a garden fairy image. I am hoping with magic this fairy will bring us some nice summer weather in Vancouver. We have not had any decent weather lately, it's been rainy and cold.

The stamp is from Crafter's Companion- Fairyopolis Summer Collection. I colored it with Copic markers. The DP is from Memory Box. The cardstock is from SU, I used the same paper to make the larger rose. The DP and cardstock color is actually more like eggplant than indigo; not sure why it doesn't show the true color in the photo. I lightly dusted the wings and the dress with glitters. I added more MB DP for the inside of the card.

Thanks for stopping by and have a good week.


I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Hi Katie, this is so pretty inside and out! I love the "eggplant" colour of the flower, it seems to add depth in the picture, which looks great! And such a gorgeous magical image!!!
