Some Fairy Fun

Hello! I’m bringing in Spring with this lovely fairy from the digi set Portfolio Collection. This set is just one of many in the new Digi Design House store! I feel like she is welcoming the morning sun as she stands there in the breeze.

I had so much fun coloring her, the folds in the gown are just itching to get shaded! I added some glitter pen to the wings to give them some magic dust!

These flowers were great, I flipped them over onto a foam pad and took my embossing tool to the bottom of the petals, then flipped them and pushed down in the center! This gave them so much more dimension. I topped them off with pearls and popped them up.

Teresa, that is a beautiful card. I'm not a fairy person, but the more I see that image I love it. I may have to try something with it. Your layout and details and beautiful. Love your card!

WOW!! I've loved this fairy since she was in rubber which was a LONG time ago. You did an amazing job and she is just stunning now! Going to have to get her out now for some Spring cards!!!
