Vintage Fairy

My mojo has gone no-jo...not so much that the ideas aren't coming, but it's taking forever to translate them to paper (and plenty of paper is being wasted in the process). It's like my fingers KNOW I'm in a rush!
It took three days to finish this, but I do like how it turned out at long last. I've gone with vintage colours & feel for the SweetPea Stampers challenge, and Wings, Fantasy & Fiction for the Stamping Sensations challenge. They both end February 26.


Supplies: SweetPea digi stamp; Bic & Spectrum Noir markers; Prismacolor pencils; Basic Grey papers; Wilton doily; Cuttlebug tag & embossing folder; Victorian Velvet distress stickles; Sakura Stardust glitter pen; loose copper glitter; Antique Linen & Brushed Corduroy distress ink; classic small oval Nesties; tonic distress tool, emery board, random copper brad, pearls


I embossed & then lightly sanded the paper, and distressed the edges of that & the fairy panel. The tag was distressed, crumpled, and then inked.

xoxo,
Jessi

I know all about the no-jo mo-jo but yours isn't suffering at all if this card is any indication! It's beautiful!

It is a very lovely card and has a wonderful feel to it. I'm glad you confessed how long it took to make. It is good for some of us (me anyway) to hear that sometimes the craft does not happen easily.
