Pollycraft Monday Challenge #81 Diamonds and Pearls

                    Star Fairy

Last week I won the challenge at Pollycraft Monday, and this is one of the ten free images from Pollycraft that I won.  This adorable digital image is called “Star Fairy”, and I think she is so cute hanging there upside down!

As you can see there is a lot going on in the layout of this card.  I got the sketch from the Card Making and Papercraft magazine for February. 

I colored the image with copics, and then used the Spellbinders round and scalloped dies to cut out and layer the digi.  I added some cute little white pearls to her shoes, and used a Sakura glitter pen on the wings, her hat and the Star branches.  I also added some Crafts crystal (diamond) gems around the image.  The designer paper is from the Olivia paper pad by Basic Grey, and from Graphic 45 – Once Upon A Springtime Collection.  I embossed the turquoise back panel with a folder from Cuttlebug.  Then on the front panel I added a lacy effect with a border punch from Martha Stewart.  The flowers I crocheted with embroidery floss, then added buttons from Doodlebug.  I also sewed around the outside of the card and along the front panel.  Then I added some pink pearls on the corners.  Ribbon and lace are from my leftovers from other projects.  I also used a sentiment from Kraftin’ Kimmie.
