Silhouette Fairy

Hello my blogging friends, good to have you visit me today. I have been rather lacking in my posts of late so I do apologize.

Today's card is another one I made for Sheena Douglass, this one did feature in the shows. I did change the pose of the Fairy for this one too.

I thought it would be nice to show a simple Monochrome card so I matted and layered up some Black & White card, between the two layers I added some Black Satin Ribbon. The top layer of White card is actually an embossed piece of White card which does not show up too well on here but it does have beautiful swirls all over it lol! I sprayed it with some Iridescent glitter to make it sparkle, again lost in this photo!

On some more White card I stamped the Mushrooms and painted them Black & Grey, cut them out and positioned them in the bottom right corner.

I die cut and embossed the sitting Fairy out of Black card and snipped into her legs and arm to reposition them as seen, I made her wings out of acetate and heat embossed them with Black sparkle  embossing powder, folded them in half and stuck them to her back then sat her on top of the Mushrooms.

Using more Black Card I die cut the little Butterfly and heat embossed this with Pearl Lustre embossing powder, now this gave a lovely hint of green to the black card, which again does not show up in this photo, sorry!!!

I did not add a sentiment as I felt this could be used for almost any occasion so left it blank.

  1. I love the CAS look to this card Jacquie - yet there is so much going on. I can clearly see the lovely embossing and looking carefully I can see a touch of iridescence on the butterfly. It's a shame the camera doesn't pick it all up but your card still looks lovely. Christine xx
