I created this card for one of the VSN challenges last weekend. For this one you should Mash two techniques together. I picked paper piercing and dry embossing.

For my image I chose one of Mo Manning’s little Fairies. She was printed on Neenah Solar White paper and cut and embossed with Petite Oval Nestabilities dies. The image was colored with Copic Markers (Dress: Y32, Y17, YR15, YR18,    underpants: R20, R21, R22,     Crown and Wand: Y11, Y13, Y15, W2,     Hair: YG21, YG23, YG25,     Skin: E50, E51, E53,    Background: BG0000, BG0000), layered on a piece of black cardstock cut with Scallop Petite Oval Nestabilities and the edges of the image were paper pierced. Clear Spica pen was used to add a subtle sparkle to her crown, wand and wings.

Two 3 3/4″ long strips of the yellow Echo Park Springtime paper were punched with a border punch from Stampin’ Up. They were adhered to a 3 3/4″ x 5″ piece of orange paper from the same paper pack with a piece of pink Springtime paper in between. The paper was dry embossed with Tim Holtz Retro Circles Embossing folder and stitched to a 3/16″ bigger piece of black cardstock.

1/2″ green silk ribbon was tied around the layers and topped with a Rhinestone Recollection brad. A sentiment from My Favorite Things Clearly Sentimental about you stamp set was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and cut and embossed with the small tag of the Tag Trio die set. It was tied to the brad with Iridescent May Arts Curling Ribbon.

The card base is a piece of 4 1/4″ x 11″ Pink Pirouette paper folded in half. Recollection Rhinestone swirls finish off the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day.
Hugs and smiles
