I Believe In Fairy Tales - Stamptacular Sunday Challenge #70

Hi Everyone,
  I love little fairy images and this Tiddly Inks fairy is just too cute!  I chose this for the "Out Of This World" challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday.  They have a great design team and some wonderful prizes for winners - so be sure to check it out.  I really love the background paper I chose - it's a KaiserCraft paper called Lilac Avenue Collection.  The fairy image just worked with the paper - so I chose to make her dress and shoes purple.  Once I finished coloring her with my Copics (have I told you how much I LOVE my Copics - he he) I cut her out VERY carefully!

 I computer generated the sentiment and placed all papers on my Bazzill light green paper.  I inked the edges of the card and sentiment with my Stampin' Up light purple ink from the Bolds set.  I tied the shear purple ribbon around the background paper and twirled the ribbon down the paper and adhered it at the bottom with a glue dot.  I added the sentiment and then the fairy.  Finally, I added a number of rhinestone gems and then stickled the fairy and the flowers with the Stardust Stickles.  I like how this card turned out - and I do believe in Fairy Tales - don't you?


  1. Oh this is truly magical! Hee Hee! The paper is a perfect choice. She is adorable, I collect Fairie parphernalia for one of my Grand daughter's,(she thinks she's Tinkerbell, LOL) Fairie's are just the Cutest little things and your's looks adorably real! Love the touch of stickles. And love the new look to your blog, lots more to see. You went to a 3 column blog right? Looks great, I've been thinking of changing mine, was it hard to do?

  2. Melissa, this is spectacular. The colors are amazing. You are doing an awesome job with your copics. I love them too! Wanted to let you know that I am going to get your stuff out to you shortly. I was REALLY sick all last week. I got so sick last Monday and had to call an ambulance to get me to the hospital. All week I had to go to the DR for tests. Will be getting the results back soon. I am feeling a little better today, so hopefully will be back in the swing of things:)


  3. This card is beautiful and one of my favorites! Your technique with the copics is remarkable. I think you have a real talent for it! Keep it up!
    I can't wait to see what you do next!
