Hi all, well...here she is .... is my very own Fairy Sue!! drawn by the mega talented Teresa. And you can buy her from My Crafty Heart!! Ooh I am so honoured to have a fairy named after me (blush) and it is so thoughtful of Teresa to have created fairies for all the My Crafty Heart Design Team. Thank you heaps hun!!!
The gorgeous paper is Alla Prima. The flower is Prima Teal Rose Trim. The little purple crystals are Hero Arts small mixed Gemstones. Stickles used are Star Dust (on wings and grass) and Tiara Glitz on the buckle. All available from My Crafty Heart.
I've used a 'Fleur de Lis' Rectangle Nestie that I got for Christmas. I've wanted these nesties for so long! I also got some Memory Box - 'Simple Buckles' and I love them! you can do so many things with them. Here I have added 'Tiara' Glitz Stickles which are extra sparkly!!
Papermania Ribbon is from stash - I have had it for ages and forgotten about it but it just happened to fit the buckle and be the right colour. Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat.
And that's it really. I've not added too many embellishments on this one as I really don't think it needs it.
I love that this card is So pretty and yet it will still fit into an envelope!!! So great for posting!! :-))
I have coloured Fairy Sue with Copics and Flexmarkers. It doesn't show up in the photo below but the fairy wings and grass are dusted with Star Dust Stickles.
and in Teresa's own words.....
Fairy Sue is a kind and thoughtful fairy who likes to enjoy the sunshine and flowers...
Blogger was misbehaving yesterday. I had to completely re-do a Post because one paragraph of text kept going into a HUGE ugly font!!!! also the blooming light is awful for taking photographs. The only decent photo I could get of this card was this one taken at an angle with lamp!! Oh roll on Spring and Summer and lighter days and evenings .... Sue really does like the sunshine and flowers!!! :-)
I would also like to say a big Thank You to Robin!!! (Teresa's son) who made this beautiful Blog Button with Fairy Sue on ... isn't it gorgeous!!!
