The Christmas Tree Fairy

Come and join in our Christmas fun at Come And Get It challenges, this time it's a card: cagichallenge



And I used a beautiful image from one of our sponsors - All Dressed up.  Have a look at the wonderful images here: alldressedupstamps


I coloured the image with pencils, then sponged three shades of Distress Inks around the edges and spritzed with water, blotting to remove colour when it was how I wanted it.  I masked the image then used a toothbrush to add gold acrylic paint speckle, and a spray of green mica mist.  When it was all dry I stencilled some stars (stencil is made with a star punch).  Lastly I brushed the wings & dress with clear Wink of Stella, and stars with Kindyglitz.  Double sided tape strips on the side were covered with pastel lemon superfine glitter.
