For the first card I used some watercolors around the image and kept the coloring of the fairy light. I love this effect, kind of gives the fairy tale dreamy and soft look, isn't it?
For my 2nd. card, I die-cut the Birch Tree die. I stacked a few of them to give various height for added dimension. I sponged the background using distress inks in Twisted Citron, Picked Raspberry and Squeezed Lemonade. Colored the fairy using copics. If you look at the close-up, you will notice I gave dimension to the fairy's dress too. It looks so pretty in real life.
To finish I added some Wink of Stella clear glitter.
Hope you got inspired. Do check out the shop for all the fun new stuff! Have a nice weekend.
