An Aqua Fairy

Hello sweet blog friends and welcome!  Today I have a card to share with you, using my Craft Dee BowZ bow maker.  I'm on an aqua and flower fairy roll, so I took this image that's been stored on my computer and had some fun.  I haven't found any copyright restrictions on it and so I am sharing it with you for your own use...

Some coloring with alcohol inks to transform the aqua flowers and fairy dress and pump up the color of the greens...

I gently tinted the flowers, the fairy's dress and glittered her little wings before assembling this card...

I made a quadruple bow with seam binding, topping it with some flower stamens and a velvety blossom.  A sprig of wired aqua crystals twines it's way up the side of the image...

The sentiment was stamped using an olive ink, dabbed with some light brown ink, directly onto the stamp.  A finger dauber and some aqua ink was applied in a casual ring around the words after it was stamped...

There are layers of trims used on the background and the upper right corner is embellished with a gossamer butterfly and some paper flowers I have had in a drawer for longer than I can remember.  I added the white flower stamens to these simple, paper flowers before adhering them.

Thanks so much for stopping by and a huge thank you for the wonderful comments you have left!!!  I create in alone and so it's terrific to hear your feedback and thoughts!

Sending you blessings and ((hugs)),
