Whimsical Fairy

Got a cute little card I was working on today using a Lili of The Valley stamp.  I’ve had these for a while, but never got around to using them. 


I chose the color combo of blue, purple and green, and I love how vibrant it looks!  I colored the image with Copics, but had a bit of an accident on the dress, so I paper pieced the dress.  I had already did most of the stamp and didn’t want to start over.  I added some glitter to her wings, but you can’t really see it in the picture.  Way to dark and gloomy here today for picture taking.  I used a couple of Martha Stewart punches for the flowers, and then added a brad for the center.

Hope you are having a crafty day!
