A Cali Fairy

Hi everyone,

Time has slipped away from me and I'm just realizing it has been a while since I posted.  I've been missing blog land lately.  Today I want to share with you some tags I made using the Spellbinders Fairy Cali die.  I just love this die and how intricate her wings are.  I also purchased the Ariana fairy too :-)

The tags were created using beautiful Jardin papers by Microferk Designs in gorgeous hues of purple & pink with a hint of pale yellow.  After die cutting the fairy, I colored her hair and dress with Prismacolor pencils.  I love Shimmerz Paint and couldn't resist adorning her wings with it.  I then added some Star Dust glitter.  She was popped up with dimensions on the tag.

Each cherry blossom petal was die cut with Shimmery White paper and sponged with coordinating pink and purple inks.  I used a mister to spritz some water on the petals before crumpling them, then unfolded each one and let them air dry.  I glued a smaller petal on top of a bigger one then pierced the center of each so I could add a few pearl flower stamens.  May Arts pink wrinkled ribbon finish off each tag.

It's not even winter yet and I'm already thinking about spring ... LOL!  Actually, I have some Thanksgiving projects to assemble and then I will show you what I have been working on for Christmas.  See you soon!

I followed a car yesterday with a bumper sticker that said "A day without fairies is a day without sunshine" on it! Funny to see your post about fairies! These are the cutest! You're so talented and skillful. Good to see a post from you.

I am a nut when it comes to faeries, maybe because I am Irish? HA!HA!

You did a beautiful job.
