Fairies Are Real

Super busy this week so my crafting time has been especially precious to me these last few evenings.  I finished up the fairy card--not sure it's quite done but good enough for public viewing.  :)

I used alcohol inks on acetate and diecut the frame from that.  I wanted dreamy translucence and shine.  Check.  Next I used Distress Inks on the background and spattered with water AND Peerless gold.  Love how that turned out.  The sentiment was stamped with VersaFine before the Peerless and I had to go back and use a Copic Multiliner to fix the ampersand which had gotten a bit covered up by gold.  I used the Scan n Cut to cut out the fairies.  Was really excited to find it had no problems cutting out something embossed in gold.  Cool.  Isn't my little fairy so sweet?  Damn Disney and Tinker Bell for making all fairies be blonde in my head!
