Winter Fairy

Hello everyone, hope you're having a fabulous bank holiday weekend, despite the weather.  This week I've made yet another Christmas card for my stash.  I saw this gorgeous little fairy on another blog and just had to hunt her down.  This is Winter Fairy Talva by Mo Manning available from Mo's Digital Pencil.


I started by stamping my image with Momento Tuxedo Black ink and cut her out using Spellbinders large circle die and inking around the edges with tumbled glass distress ink whilst leaving the die in place.  I created the large snowflake effect by cutting out several Marianne D snowflakes and gluing them to the back of a large scalloped spellbinder die cut in the same glitter card.  She's coloured with copics and had plenty of Crystal Glamour Dust thrown at her.  I've used Shabby Xmas Blues papers downloaded from Stamping All Day, printed on Epsom matt photo paper.  I also used Marianne D frosty border.  The sentiment is from Whimsical Designs 'Snow Much Fun' cut out using X-Cut label dies, the ribbon is from my stash.


I'm hoping to enter my card into the following challenges this week:
