PCS Lily the Fairy


Hi everyone, here's a card I've made for the Pink Cat Studios blog challenge, there's a cute little Lily the fairy image to download and use for your card. I've coloured with inks and markers, cut out with labels nestie dies and matted over another labels cutout in Coredinations card which is embossed and sanded then edge distressed. The background layer is also embossed and sanded and I added some sticky tape and pressed cosmic shimmer glitter jewels onto it which I've seen on a few blogs this week and I think is a brilliant idea. Finished the card with Prima flowers, gems, and an Elzybells sentiment. TFL.

Materials:
Stamps: digital image from Pink Cat Studios, Elzybells sentiment.
Colouring: Ranger Distress inks in dusty concord, worn lipstick, black soot, mustard seed, frayed burlap. Ancient page ink in primrose. Promarkers blush and pastel pink.
Cardstock: Lilac cardstock for base, Coredinations in lilac and pale yellow.
Embellishment: Cuttlebug folders, sandpaper, glue tape, Cosmic Shimmer glitter jewels, edge distresser, Prima hydraenga flowers, gems, stickles glue in stardust.

Back soon Chris
