Fairy Wishes

Welcome

I made this card early in the year for one of my great-grand daughters.


The stamp is a freebie from a magazine that I have had for years and never used, so I inked it up with Memento Pearlescent Orchid, which has a slight sheen to it, and also 'winked' her wings 


I 'grounded' her on an acanthus leaf stamped in green and coloured with Prismacolor pencils.  The image panel was cut with a M/B stitched rectangle die, adapted to fit, and layered over some gold edged organza ribbon. 


The sentiment was embossed with platinum embossing powder on a hand cut banner on a snippet of white card, then layered, slightly offset, over another snippet of pink


The paper is a very old Prima pad - this was one of my first pads of paper, way back!!



Sorry about the fuzzy image,  I stamped this on the inside of the card using stamps from the set and the same ink as the fairy.

Lovely card. I like that image...I wonder if I have the magazine. I remember having a magazine with an image similar to that...If so, I need to look for it. You have inspired me. Jill <-who is hooked on papercraft magazines!

It is so pretty maxine and I love that how the fairy is jumping from the leaf and and setting her 'winked' wings to fly away. BEAUTIFUL!! You have great grand daughters too? They are so lucky to get a card from their great grand mum.. so lucky and blessed, they are.

Great work Maxine using up your NBUS, I partly attacked a bit of mess to one side of craft room, found some NBUS there too!
Smiled at your memory off where your paper comes from, I have that ink too which you’ve inked the fairy on, looks lovely. Am sure it was really loved... however I’m astounded that you’re a great grandmother!
Thanks for being a blessing, and may God bless you too.
Hugs, Shaz in Oz.x

Such a pretty card and so appropriate for a young lady. I love the way you have 'winked' her wings - I tried 'winking' something in my cloth book but it hardly shows - might resort to Stickles. I also love the way you have coloured the leaf that she is standing on - a beautiful use of shades of green.
God Bless, Neet xx

What a lovely card Maxine - I adore all the sparkle and the ink pad you used (Pearlescent Orchid) is one of my very Memento favurites - I have a box full of their dew drop shaped pads and find myself drawn to that one time and time again! And such pretty paper as well. Love it!

Hugs
