ID: MC Feb16 - Mushrooms - Fairy - Leave Room - HB card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: February 18, 2016

I I had cut 2 of these fairies, so figured I'd use the 2nd one rather than toss it in the "one day" bin... I think she's so cute. Finally used my Tombows... haven't used them in eons.

I'm using a couple quote & sentiment stamps  from Quietfire Design  

("Leave Room in..."); ("Happy Birthday Plain and Simple" 7pce set); ("Friendship isn't a Big..."); ("Twirl and Enjoy" 3pce set)


Side folded my white card. I created a diffusing mat from a piece of mat board, cutting out the center rectangle which I didn't want embossed. Kept both pieces using the drop out as a mask. Sponged some Distress "Old Paper" in the frame area. Ran through my embossing machine using Spellbinders "Bark" embossing folder. Hit the high points with "Gathered Twigs".

Inked up a piece of rubber with "Tumbled Glass" all over, then streaks of "Broken China" and "Picked Raspberry", misted with water and stamped the center rectangle.

Created eCut files of the mushroom stamps (Chocolate Baroque "Autumn Poppy" set), cut from white cardstock, stamped with Versafine Black Onyx and clear embossed, then colored with Tombow markers.

  Pulled some leaves from my die cut leaf bin as filler.

eCut the fairy from white cardstock, inked with the black and the bird with yellow and clear embossed.

Adhered all my elements. 

Stamped the quote using the black and clear embossed.

Stamped the "Happy Birthday' with the black on white cardstock, clear embossed and die cut with Spellbinders "Fancy Tags" set, moving the die to get a longer tag... sponged the edges with a dirty pink sponge. Adhered to card front.

On the inside: Inked my blank piece of rubber with the tumbled glass, misted with water and stamped.

Stamped the quote and the sentiment with the black and clear embossed.

Adhered a bunch of mini butterflies from my stash.

Used a green Sakura gel pen to outline the rectangle.
