Fairy Fun Fridays week 10 - tissue paper



Time for a new challenge at Fairy Fun Fridays and this week we'd like to see what you can do with tissue paper! I've made a flower, which is probably not the most imaginative use of tissue paper, but I'm sure you can all come up with something fabulous :o) I had fun making my card anyway!

I've used one of my favourite Prairie Fairy images from the Prima Ballerina set, coloured with promarkers - isn't she sweet? The papers are DCWV, orange flower ribbon was a magazine freebie - I've added some Papermania buttons to each little flower. Those little... umm... I've got no idea what they're called lol, but the orange things held on with brads down the side of the image, are Papermania - they started out cream and I coloured them with a promarker. I bought the cute little sentiment tag stamp in a stamp set from a local craft shop, no idea what brand they are but there's lots of cute little tags with different messages and they stamp so nicely. My flower was made with lots of layers of tissue paper cut with nestie peony dies, I then used a few different pink ink pads because I couldn't get it quite the right shade (it's still not quite right!) and got in a big pink mess, then scrunched each layer and cut them to make petals. Finally I used a light spray of adhesive and sprinkled on some glamour dust and added an orange button from my stash.

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
