Cute Card Thursday Has Wings!

Hello friends!  It’s Thursday already which means it’s time for a brand new challenge over at Cute Card Thursday!  This is a really fun one to play with!  This week we’d like to see your “Wings” things!  Can’t wait to see what everyone makes!!

This week we are being sponsored by All Dressed Up Stamps and I have used one of their lovely images for my card today:


Isn’t she the sweetest little thing?  I have used the Fairy Magic image that was kindly donated from our sponsor, and I have colored her up using Copic markers.  I’ve also sponged some light blue ink around the image panel before matting it onto a green sparkly layer cut with a scallop square die.  I also used some craft foam to pop up the image panel over my card for a bit of dimension.

I have just bought these gorgeous Fairy Garden papers from Kaiser Craft and used them on the background panel of my card.  I also used some gorgeous shimmery light green cardstock to go with it!  I’ve taken a thin strip of the glitter cardstock and attached it up against the butterfly papers and then attached some lace over it.  I then mounted this entire panel over a white top folding 5″ x5″ card base.


Here’s a closer view of the coloring and the little sparkly details I’ve added to her.   For the wings, I’ve taken a glitter brush pen over them and then used some metallic colored gel pens to add some dots to her wings as well as the butterfly wings along with some gold dots around her ribbons and the sentiment.

Here you can also see the wood veneer butterfly accent that I’ve added at the top.  I painted it with white gesso and then painted over it with some pretty pearl shimmer paint before attaching it to the card.


Lastly, I’ve added three pearls at the bottom left corner of the card.  In this photo you can see the pretty shimmer on the light green background cardstock.  It was hard to capture in the photos, but the butterfly papers are sparkle embossed as well.

Thanks so much for dropping in today!
