Lili's Fairys meets Funky Fairys



Challenges

Lili Of The Valley (20) - Sketch
Funky Fairys (5) - Swirls

This one was a bit of a challenge as I was asked by my friends to make a card for their Goth daughter's birthday whose favourite colours are black and purple, I hope she likes it.

By following the great LOTV sketch by Donalda I first placed a piece of backing paper over the front of the card. I then cut and embossed the three squares using the cuttlebug, embossing folders and nesties and placed them diagonally using D/S tape. I then cut the rectangles the same way. I coloured the image using Sakura Stardust pens and decoupaged it onto the rectangles which I secured in place with foam pads. To this I added a few black gems. The sentiment is a peel-off on offset pieces of card. I finished it off with flowers, ribbon and some filigrees to which I added some gems.

Card Recipe

Paper - Funky Fairys
