Fairy Lily Revisited

I decided to make a second Lily the fairy card. She is just to fun to play with. This time I had her sprinkling pixie dust on a field of flowers. If you look closely you can see that the flowers on the left are sparkly, but the one of the right that she hasn't gotten to yet is not. Too fun! I thought this sentiment from Verve stamps was just too perfect!

The flowers on the bottom of the card are from the Dress up Lily stamp set. All of the images were colored with watercolor crayons and an aquapainter. To make it look like Lily had been flying, I created a fairy dust path behind her by dry embossing the flourish from the Priceless classy brass template by Stampin' Up! I then wiped the embossed part with a white ink pad and highlighted it with icicle stickles. I love this brass stencil because it also had holes to paper pierce.

In the end this card was just what I pictured in my head. I love it when that works out!
