Woodland Fairy

It's time for our Wednesday challenge over at The House That Stamps Built. 

This week we have an inspiration board for you.
This challenge is a fun cross between a photo challenge and a color challenge. You can choose to be inspired by the colors, the photograph, or both!

I chose to be inspired by both sides of the board this month -- the rocks and the colors.
Here's how I created my card:
  • I stamped 1712-P, By the Stream in Versamark Watermark ink on watercolor paper, added black embossing powder, and heat set it 
  • Using my Sonnet Watercolors, I colored my scene
  • I cut a large circle (Circle Nestabilities - Spellbinders) in a piece of dark blue card stock and matted my scene behind it
  • I cut a large scallop circle (nestabilities - Spellbinders), cut out the center, and used it to frame my scene
  • I stamped 1507-J, Grass Border in Pine Needles Distress ink (Ranger) across the bottom of my card front 
  • I die cut the sentiment from the Hello Doily Die Set (Sizzix)
  • I punched a butterfly trim border (Martha Stewart) and fussy cut two butterflies to add to my scene
  • The fairy is from Frantic Stamper (Fairy and Flower) and is paper pieced
    • I added two extra sets of wings - one in vellum and one in white card stock
  • To complete my scene I added some purple glitter (Studio G) flowers to the grass and also to the meadow scene
