Fairy "Thank You" cards
I was recently RAK'd a set of Studio G Series 28 stamps "Fairy Set" from an awesome crafter on the Splitcoast messageboard. Although Studio G stamps are not of the highest quality stamps (sometimes you need to condition them to stamp well), I think this set is awesome. I made a set of four 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" cards. I used four images of fairies from the set and colored them in with watercolor pencils and waterpen. The pixie dust circle around the fairies are from the cuttlebug cut and emboss die fairy dust I found at Big Lots. The "Thank You" stamp in the corner is from a stamp set from The Angel Company. I used Scribbles glittering crystal 3D paint on the wings (This is a cheap alternative to stickles). I cut a one inch strip for a belly band and embossed with the "Textile" cuttlebug folder. The pixie dust circles and belly band were misted with some homemade glimmer mist (would love to try the real glimmer mist just can't afford it) and lightly brushed across embossing with a gold ink pad. I layered some paper flowers from Michaels dollar bin and placed a brad in the center. I used the "Tiny Tags" stamp set to stamp the sentiment and the Jewlery tag from Stampin Up to punch out the tag and placed that on the flower with the brad. There are some really awesome, kind people out there who get overlooked by all the negativity in this world. I am so glad that I have had the opportunity to meet with some of them. Thank you!! and thanks for looking at my creations.
