Shopping our Stash #134 - Miss You


I know, I shared a fairy card last week for Shopping our Stash - but this image is just so far beyond perfect for this week's challenge to create a Miss You card. I HAD TO USE IT.


Supplies: paper makeup fairy stamp; sentiment from Paper Smooches; Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Salty Ocean distress ink; Bic & Spectrum Noir markers; Simple Stories patterned paper; fabric, felt snowflakes from stash; Martha Stewart fine crystal glitter; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; pink rhinestones from Dollarama; Making Memories brads


I've carefully added crystal glitter on the wings & on her, uh, crystal ball? The thingy in her hand :) I then traced other details with the glitter pen (eyes, hair, etc). The fabric piece is one that had already been cut & heated with the heat tool to crumple it up, and then sat on my desk since it didn't work for the project I originally intended it for. The felt snowflakes have been in my stash FOREVER, and they're adhered with pewter brads you can hardly see.

I don't generally make cards with a recipient in mind, but I thought of the same person pretty much the entire time I was making this, so I'm thinking that's a sign that I should just send it!

 Come & play along with this challenge until next Monday, January 20th hop on by & leave the rest of my teamies some love!


xoxo,
Jessi

Oh my word Jessie! This is beyond gorgeous! I love the glitter touches in her hair, wings, and necklace. Thank you for sharing the close up so we could see those darling special touches. I struggle with photographing and making mine pick up the little things that make a big impact and this sure does! Hope you are doing well friend! I think of you daily even though I don't get around daily!
