Seasonal Fairy

Kit and Clowder are running a competition with a free digi stamp, what more could a crafter want? The idea is to say which your favourite season is and colour in the fairy appropriately. My favourite season is winter.

Materials used:
Fairy Fall image by Amy Doodle Stamp Co
white card
black A5 card blank
snippets of silver mirri card and white card
Die’sire Nouveau Stamping Frame die
mixture of Spellbinders and x-cut snowflake dies
crystal glamour dust
iridescent spray and sparkle
Spectrum Noir Pens

Method:
I printed out the fairy onto white card four times (it’s good to have a spare or three to practice colours on!) Having coloured her in with the pens I used the Die’sire die to cut her out along with a silver frame and several snowflakes in white. I sprayed the snowflakes with Spray and Sparkle and left them to dry.

I mounted the image onto the frame and then attached to the card blank. I then used the glamour dust on her wings to give her a bit of sparkle. Finally I attached the snowflakes using gel glue.

Because she is a winter fairy I have dressed her in Christmas red and made her headdress a holly one. I have tried to keep her skin pale (not a lot of sun in the winter so not much tan.) The leaves on the ground are winter brown rather than green and her hair is grey for the end of the year. I have not added a sentiment yet because I am not sure if she is a Christmas or Birthday Winter Fairy.

Thank you for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.

    Pippa, your Die’sire die is simply beautiful, and what a wonderful frame for the pretty fairy. Those wings glitter so well and she’s a really cute image too. You’ve colored her so well, and she’s a perfect Winter fairy. Loved the snowflakes on the black frame. TFS & Hugs. Hope I see you in the Playground. I’ll save you a seat on the swings, and maybe there’ll be some hot cider. I think I read where it might be rather chilly in some UK places.
