Sneak Peak - MY CRAFTY HEART - Fairy Ira

 Here's an exciting Sneak Peak for you of .....

The store will be opening on Saturday 14th January 2012

The products used on this card are just a taste of what will be on offer in Teresa's Fab new Online Shop... I have added Turquoise card from my stash and made sentiment on computer. Other than that, everything is from the My Crafty Heart Store. 

The paper is Alla - Prima 6 x 6 Pad and is a selection of lemons, turquoise and greens. Perfect for Spring and also for fairy images!!

I have used some 'Waterfall' Stickles for the first time and I  love them !! It's a bit like Star Dust only it has a slight blue tinge. I have distressed the paper edges and stickled them.

The gorgeous Teal Rose Trim is by Prima and matches perfectly with the turquoise in the pad.

The lovely little Yellow Resin Flower, Gingham Ribbon, and Butterfly Charm are all from MCH.

I have used one of Teresa's own digis named Fairy Ira after the lovely Ira herself who is a member of our Design Team. I dusted the background with 'Bundled Sage' distress ink which shows up better in the above photos! and I have also added 'Waterfall' stickles to her wings.

'Ira is a very serene, calm fairy, she likes nothing more than to dance amongst the flowers in her bare feet!!'

I really enjoyed colouring her. She is a dream to colour and you can get some lovely depth of shading with the waves in her hair. 

Well I hope you enjoyed my 'Sneak Peak' Card as much as I enjoyed making it !!! I am going to have to do another Sneak Peak now...... LOL
