Flower Fairies

One of my favourite books as a child was The Flower Fairy's. I had a set of 4 different books that I still have today. I have always loved the images of the different fairies and I was thrilled when I heard earlier this year that Crafters Companion was releasing 6 sets of stamps using flower fairy images and also a matching CD with backing papers and decoupage - needless to say I counted the hours from ordering to delivery. I really must compliment Crafters Companion - they offer some really beautiful CD's that are easy to use and jam packed full of decoupage images and background papers and even ATC backers. Even better your order arrives really quickly - I have placed an order before on a Tuesday and received it in my office on Thursday am - not bad from UK to Cape Town....
I have used cream as the base card and then I printed out sheet of flower fairy paper and went around edges with pink colour box ink pad and attached to cardfront. I then took a strip of Pink Bazzil cardstock and stamped words from Crafters Companion onto it using Brown Brilliance ink pad. (sorry scanned badly - says Every little girl wants to be a fairy - definately true in my case) I then attached it as shown. I printed out Rose Flower Fairy decoupage sheet and cut it out and decoupaged fairy using foam pads and attached to cardfront as shown. I then added some flowers which I went over with distress stickles ala Tim Holtz and added some rhinestones.
