Petal Fairy

I didn't get a chance to get as crafty as I was meaning to this weekend. There were two birthday parties and some chores I've been neglecting *cough*laundry*cough*. By the time I finished everything and was ready to get crafty, it was already Sunday night. I still made a little time to color in this beautiful digi from Some Odd Girl, so I finished a simple card with her.

Petal Fairy is a brand new digi, and if you're a part of the Odd girls Facebook group, you can grab the link to buy her early (before she's listed in the store front).

I started by printing out Petal Fairy and coloring her in with my Copics. I didn't do anything special this time around, just colored for the fun of it. I went with bright colors, and added a couple of highlights with a white gel pen. After she was completely colored in, I carefully cut around her and set her aside to make the rest of the card.

I made a top-folding A2 card base out of mint cardstock.

I really liked the polka and flower patterned paper from My Mind's Eye Just Sayin' paper pad. I cut it into a 3 x 3 1/2" panel. I matted it with a piece of pink cardstock that matched some of the flowers. I adhered the fairy onto the panel with my standard adhesive, making sure she was over the flowers. Unfortunately, some of her butterfly wing was sticking out and I had to trim it (it wouldn't fit in an envelope otherwise). I adhered the panel to the card front using foam tape.

Lastly, I decided to add a few embellishments. I kept them simple by adding a few pink enamel dots and drawing a border with a white gel pen.

  1. Ah chores, they always get in the way. Boo! lol Petal fairy is so pretty and I love the bright happy colours you've chosen. It's fun to colour just for the sake of colouring sometimes, isn't it. I love how you've designed the card too. Looks very dimensional. :)

    1. On the bright side, at least the majority of chores are mindless things that leave me free to think about all sorts of things - even crafty ideas. But, it still does take quite a long time to finish them...

      And, thank you! Coloring is a great therapy. Very relaxing. :D
