The starting point of this card was a photo of coneflowers from our garden. I love taking photos and used to print everything, so I have a lot of pictures especially of flowers, landscapes and places we have visited. I used markers and added additional color to this photo, then I actually used sand paper to roughed it up! I put the photo on a colorful paper and added green german scrap. Made some layered flowers with buttons. (Someday I will show you my extensive button stash.) I painted the wooden houses and assembled the corners adding a little purple felt bird. The fairy was a transparency from Artchix Studio that I colored with Ranger Alcohol inks on the back then painted with acrylic paint. I also added Ranger Dimensional Pearl dots on the wings. The final touch was the sentiment "sweet as a fairy".
Hope you will meet special people this week, who are "sweet as a fairy".
Artfully yours, gerri
