I would like to share with you.......................

some crafty goodness with you all.

Today, I met up with my friends today for a wonderful crafty day, we spent a lot of the time putting the world to rights, but I did manage to get a bit of crafting done!

I coloured in Silver Fairy with TH Distress Markers onto Water Colour Paper (from my stash ), I also stamped another fairy and coloured the wings, then cut these out, then I cut her out using Spellbinders Floral Ovals, as she is a bit big for the die, I decoupaged a set of wings onto my panel as I lost a bit of her wings, in the die cutting process.

I stickled ( is that a word ) her wings and dress with Star Dust Stickles, my most used colour, well diamond gets used a fair bit as well.

The background was created using the MS score board, now if you have not got one of these, WHY NOT! lol. I love mine. I distressed the edges with a craft knife, well I would of used my distressing tool, but it seems to have fallen into the deep pit called my craft room!

I added a distressed strip of patterned paper and a row of Lace and pearls, before layering the fairy panel on the top. I used my MS Vintage Lace PATP set to create my card base.
Then finished it off with a few flowers from my stash and a few punch outs using the Martha Stewart branch punch.

I just love the way her wings pop off the page!
