VIDEO | Thank You Fairy Much

Hello there, today I have the absolute pleasure of taking part in a Video Blog Hop to celebrate Kari reaching 2000 subscribers on her You Tube Channel. Kari shares amazing videos at KWCardDesign and is such a lovely person, so I am thrilled to be able to celebrate with her. There are prizes up for grabs for you all too! :)

For my card, I started off by stamping and colouring the fairies plus flower image from the new Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends stamp set. These were coloured with Copics and die cut out using the matching dies. I then ran a piece of cardstock through my Cuttlebug and cut the largest of the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles twice. The first piece I kept intact, the second was run back through using the ME Grassy Border die.

I took Distress Inks in Twisted Citron and Mowed Lawn and blended these over the grass piece. I then used Tumbled Glass and Broken China for the sky/background piece. The sentiment, from the same Fairy Friends set, was stamped on to the grass piece using black ink. The sky/background piece was added to a white A2 card base with ATG and then I added the grass piece on top.

The flower image, as well as two toadstools (from the Gleeful Gardens - I had already coloured these in the past and kept them) were popped behind the grass. The fairies were then added with foam tape. To finish off, I added clear Wink of Stella to the fairies wings, the purple flowers and the dots on the toadstools.
