Tree fairy

Evening Peeps.

As promised, here is another sneak peek of the lovely 'Calendar Fairy - December' stamp from LOTV, being released at the end of the month.

I wrapped some adhesive paper lace (Kars) around a triangle of glittered/foiled paper from the 'Silent Night' 8x8 pad (Trimcraft), then attached it to my triangular base card. I stamped the fairy onto another paper from the same pack and cut her out (it's card weight so she stands up nicely). I coloured her in with some Graph'It markers 
Skin - 4115, 4150
Hair - 1210
Dress - 9201
Fur - 9500
Also, her wings have been blinged up with some glamour dust.

I made the baubles by punching circles from the green paper in the Timeless Victorian pad (LOTV), gluing them onto circles of white card and then covering with Glossy Accents. I twisted some white plastic coated wire into little hooks and attached to the card with a hot glue gun.

The greeting is from the Christmas Wishes set, stamped onto white paper and then layered onto the same paper that I used for the baubles.

This is so different Kat. I couldn't tell from the smaller picture I saw before but I love how you used her as the fairy on top of the tree - lovely idea!
