Something Cute

Challenge #26 on Phindy's Place is ... make something cute. What fun! I could not resist the "flowertop fairy mushroom" image, so bought it, and what a super image it was to work with. So, here's my "cute" card.
Because the purple background paper I chose, came with the stunning glitter embossing (top right), I decided to keep the card very simple. The fairy was printed onto a light green paper, and the edges were stippled with purple and blue, to blend into the background of the card. I added lots of clear stickles to the wings. On the left is a piece of very wide purple ribbon, onto which I sewed some olive green organza ribbon which I gathered and scrunched up, then tacked onto the wide ribbon. Here and there I glued a few green glitter gems. And that's it! The close up of the fairy (below) shows the wing bling, and the colouring with my fluorescent gel pens, and Copics for the hair and skin (haven't quite mastered the hair technique yet, but was my first time with Copics, so be patient with me, I'll get it right soon!).
