Fairy Wishes

 It's all about the magic of fairies with "Flying Fairy" from the Mix It Up Release at High Hopes. 

Honestly, I wasn't told a lot about fairies when I was growing up but as I got older and could choose the books I wanted to read I found a few fantasy type books that exposed me to the magic of fairies. I used to watch for fire flies and when I saw them imagined they were fairies. 
I chose to add this gorgeous stamp to an inked background I created hoping to give my card a magical feel. 

I stamped this fun fairy and coloured her using Copic markers. I added some clear sparkle pen to her wings and wand but it is hard to see in the photo. Next I hand fussy cut her leaving a thin white edge.
To make my background, I used some inks, water, Silver Stickles and white acrylic paint on watercolour paper. To create the background I used a similar process to creating a galaxy background and added some of my own "touches".

After creating my very sparkly background I used a swirling star die to cut some of it out. Some white glitter paper was added behind the stars for some extra sparkle. It is really hard to get a good picture of all the sparkle on this card - it is very sparkly in person but creating the background was so fun. After stamping the sentiment, I cut it to size and added it to some matching card stock.
