A "Fairy" Good Day!!

Here is another Chrysanthemum Fairy, The artist behind this image is Sophia Landry.Yes you are right it is a fall stamp....however still one of my favorites. So for watercoloring i used my black staz-on ink,watercolor paper and tombow markers.I used 3 individual shades of green .When watercoloring it is important to use water proof ink/permanent ink,and the correct type of paper.It is also important to go from light to dark bringing the colors out.I use a #3 paintbrush and go in circles to bring the colours out.

I already had some paper left over from a card my middle girl asked me to make.The paper is by imaginisce.This paper is by far in my opinion perfect for the latest High hopes release , as i understand the grapevine talk of another company......ohhhh i can't say, pink gems has a denny the dragon , a captain jack,jack with teddy bear & mimi with coat. This paper is called "Fairest of them All ". They are lovely ,embossed ,& full of glitter. AND they are on special right now Buy 1 get 2 free. What A "fairy"good deal.And even better yet buy the ribbon, matching brads and matching flowers and get 40% off!! can't beat that,eh?

The embellishments used were simple i found some brown bazill and used my sizzix flourish die (compatible with cuttlebug) and cut out two of them.I added some floral beads,added some making memory heart brads,prima flower and a brad for the center and of course a heart pewter corner.

Last but not least i glued it all down and 3d'd the main image then added some stickles for the final touch.

Hope you all have a great week and a "fairy" Good Day!!
