Lawn Fawn Fairy Flower Umbrella Card

Hello,

Today I'm sharing this card featuring a cute Lawn Fawn fairy! 





To create the background, I cut a piece of cardstock using the puffy cloud borders and used it as a stencil to sponge some tumbled glass distress ink until it resembled a sky full of puffy clouds.

Because I was going to put a fairy in the scene, I decided to put a layer of vellum over the top to soften it a bit and give it a bit more of a fairytale look. I cut the vellum using the largest rectangle from the stitched rectangle dies. I also used the puffy cloud borders die again to cut a white cloud piece to place at the bottom of the card.

From the spring showers set, I cut a sun from some yellow cardstock and some little clouds from some white. I coloured a small patch of card with a copic marker to achieve the colour I wanted and then cut the little raindrop shapes from it. 

I stamped the little fairy and her flower (which she is using as an umbrella!) added a tiny bit of detail to her dress, then coloured them both with copic markers. I also added a little detail to her wings with a silver gel pen.




I adhered all of the pieces how I wanted them and added some clear wink of stella to the fairy's wings, clouds and the raindrops. It's so hard to see in the photos though! I also added some glossy accents to the drops to give them extra shine. To finish off the design, I added some clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.



 I'm also entering this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge. This week, the challenge is: April Showers Bring May Flowers.
