Do you believe in Fairies?

First thing I have to do is thank my good friend Barbara P. for the marvelous new fold.   She gave me an extraordinarily beautiful card using this technique and has graciously allowed me to CASE her design.

The new Monday Craft Your Passion Challenge is up and running with the theme "Do you Believe in Fairies?"  The sponsors this go around are A Day for Daisies & The Paper Shelter - so there are two great prizes available!  The CYP Design Team has some incredible inspiration waiting for you - and you can find those, the challenge rules and due date HERE.   


As always, I started by sketching out my design vision and chose the papers I wanted to use.  Next I chose the Copic colors to coordinate with the DP.  I had printed out four copies of the focal image and colored, fussy cut sections of the image, sculpted and mounted the four layers with foam tape.  I used an ombre technique on her hair for a challenge - but missed it by one day - heavy sigh.

Punches were used for the scalloped circle and the vines. 

Assembly required a lot of matting for all the surfaces, the scalloped circle, the vines and Faery Emma.  The last touch was to add the Fairy dust using my smallest ball tool and Copic's Opaque White around Emma.
