You Brighten my Day

I spent a very relaxing evening yesterday colouring this very pretty image from Lili of the Valley, it's one of their new fairy stamps and I have to say my favourite of the new release. I coloured in the image with Distress Markers and I couldn't wait to make my card with it today! I added some Glamour Dust to the fairies wings for a bit of sparkle. Then, I teamed up the image with Maja Papers and stamped the sentiment onto kraft card using a Versafine Vintage Sepia ink pad. I stitched around the edges of the paper and added some flowers, ribbon and pearls. 

 A close up of the colouring and glitter.
