Fairytale fairies at Michelle Perkett Studios

Hi, time for a new challenge at Michelle Perkett Studios and this week our theme is 'Fairytale Fairies', now Michelle has got some of the most beautiful fairy stamps so we're spoiled for choice this time! I've chosen the gorgeous 'Juniper and Cecilia having tea in the garden' available in Michelle's Etsy Store. I love these too cuties and the sentiment with them is just perfect. 

I coloured the image with promarkers and added stickles to Juniper and Cecilia's wings for a little sparkle. I decided to ink in some clouds to make them look as though they are having tea in the sky. I usually mask the image to do this but for speed I just used a piece of scalloped card and Tumbled glass distress ink and applied it very carefully so as not to go over the fairies.

I made the background by stamping a big swirly corner stamp from Elusive Images 4 times on some white card and embossing with Broken China distress embossing powder and inkind around the edge with more tumbled glass DT. To finish off I added some sparkly white organza ribbon.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Sentimental Sunday: Anything with wings
Stampin for the weekend: New and Blue (I've used my new blue distress embossing powder)
Kaboodle Doodle: Use a digi
Whoopsi Daisy: No designer papers
Gingersnap Creations GC 85: Hot beverage
Flutter By Wednesday: Open challenge + butterfly angel or fairy
Aly's Sunday Challenge: Things with wings
Delicious Doodles: Try/Use something new (My new distress embossing powder)

Thanks for visiting today. I hope your week has got off to a good start. My week started with a few gremlins in the works as something fused the electricity, I missed the bus to work and forgot my pack up!!! Ah well, things can only get better (ooops I'll be singing that song all day now so its bound to rain)

Don't forget to check out our Fairytale Fairies challenge over at Michelle Perkett Studio, if you don't have any of Michelle's images yet you can grab a gorgeous freebie at her groups on PCP, SNR and CDAC
