Fairy Faye

I have a busy day today with three DT posts, this is the second one for A Gem of a Challenge, if you are looking for my Paper Creator's Crafts post you can find it HERE.

It's time for a new challenge over at A Gem of a Challenge and the theme for this fortnight is Stitching - Real or Faux chosen by Sue.  I decided to get my sewing machine out and have stitched the edges of my papers - don't look too closely, give me a pair of curtains to sew any day!

I've used the gorgeous digi stamp Faye with Flowers - make sure you pop over to the Pink Gem Designs Shop and take a look, Janet is always adding lots of fabulous new images, Card Topper Digi Kits and Project Kits.

I coloured Faye with ProMarkers and added Glamour Dust glitter to her wings and the hearts on her dress.  I fussy cut her and mounted her onto a die cut circle to which I had inked a cloudy background.  The papers are the from the LOTV Bonnets & Bowties paper pack and the sentiment is from The Crafty Pad - sadly no longer with us.

The prize is:

2 Individual Digi images


of the winners choice from PINK GEM DESIGNS

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
