Fantastic Fairies!

Paper Makeup Stamps has these adorable fairies. I used some earned money from clipboard orders to get one (okay two...) for my collection!




Today's challenge was to Go GREEN...either with Color or the recycling factor. I chose to make this Asian looking gal into a bit of the Irish with fiery hair and a shamrock colored smock! The PMS challenge was to use multiple embellishments...which isn't too hard for a fairy!

Glitter, stickles, rhinestones, brads, ribbons, golden paper... Add them together and you get a magically shimmery card!

I stamped the wings on acetate and dusted them with fairy dust...aka dazzling diamonds! A gold suruka pen added gold glimmers to her hairbands and the "donut" strings that she is holding.
