LILY-MAGIC FAIRY could not make up her mind ...

Lily-Magic Fairy is so peaceful and happy and she had so much to say she couldn't decide on what senitment to use. I created this card for several challenges; Simon Says Challenge, Creative Inspirations, and the Cupcake Craft Challenge. Please check out these challenges. They have lots and lots of ideas.
There are many layers and techniques used on this card. The image was stamped and heat embossed. I did a technique that is new to me which was painting with Tim Holtz distress inks. I used this technique in combination with water coloring using SU inks. Her wings were painted using Shimmerz. I love this paints. They give just the right shimmer. The little dots on the mushrooms were glazed using Crystal Effects to give them a glossy look. Of course, there is a little stickles added here and there.

I stamped the green background paper. The DP is from Close To My Heart It worked really well with this image.

I have been wanting to try a different style, so I made the left side a pocket.

Remember, Lily couldn't make up her mind what she wanted to say, so I made 5 different tags for different occassions. The sentiments were stamped and heat embossed. I stamped the background with Close To My Heart ink which matched the paper.


Thank you for looking at my card and please leave me a comment and let me know what you think.
