Little Fairy, you'll discover the way.

This is my second post today and yes, I have fairies on my mind. On Wednesday, I was honored to be a feature crafter at the wonderful Karen's fabulous Graphics Fairy blog. You can see the post here. So with fairies flying around before my eyes, I created this little fairy tag for Grungy Monday. This challenge is hosted by the lovely Linda at Studio L3 based on the techniques of the incredibly fabulous Tim. It is a challenge called Tim Holtz January 2008 technique. Please check out both of these wonderful sites to learn more.

After trying the technique to produce the dragon flies, which came out a bit faint. I inked the printed paper tag with Distress inks. I then over stamped a tiny vine and leaf detail in lime. I added a Graphics Fairy vintage mushroom image and an Artchix Studio transparent fairy. Some fiber, fabric leaves edged in copper and ribbons were added to make the forest floor. Scalloped edges inked with copper were added to the sides. A sparkle ribbon was tied to the tag. The Fairy name plaque is from Artchix Studio too and is attached with copper brads. I water colored in some additional grass to add some dimension. The sentiment reads... "little fairy, You'll discover the  way".

Hope you'll  find your way, no matter where you are going this week.
take care, gerri
