Beautiful Fairy

Hello, how's your weekend going? Mine has gone pretty good so far. I am still excited about my trip that I took yesterday to Precious Scraps. Today, my friend Angela invited me to attend a Spring Fling at her church. I had a great time there. Some of the ladies had signed up to decorate the different tables and each table was decorated with it's own theme. We're talking full table settings too and they were all so beautiful. After I left her church I decided to run by the LSS in that town. I was there for just a little over two hours! I met a couple of really nice ladies that were working on projects in the back of the store. We ended up talking and they showed me several very cool projects. One of the ladies offered to get me a copy of her instruction sheets so maybe I will have some things to show you soon. 

This card took me a very long time to do because I decided to stamp the image twice. The first one was stamped onto my main image panel and then colored with Prisma/Copic markers. Then I stamped the image again onto another piece of paper and colored that image. After the second one was colored, I cut the wings apart from the body. The body was then attached to the first one using foam dots. the main wing over her left shoulder was glued down and then the edge furtherest away from her body also has a foam dot under it. Since I had the two layers of colored paper onto of my layer of white paper I decided not to mat my main image, instead, I inked the edges of that panel with a green ink that matched the green paper. The stamp set is from Inkadinkado, paper is DCWV and the rhinestones are from Jo-Ann's dollar area. Have a great one!
