Sugar Button Fairies

Hello Wonderful people. Thank you to the lovely ladies that always visit my blog and leave such lovely comments. 

A few posts back I posted a photo of a Sugar Buttons Fairy that I had coloured in green and teal with water coloured pencils. 

I couldn't wait to get on and make something with this. 

My friend Linda Simpson uses a lot of stencils/masks and materials that go with them. I took inspiration from Linda and got out my Creative Expressions Texture Paste that I purchased last year and totally forgot about. 

I picked a backing colour that went with the image and chose a suitable mask and set to work. 
I admit, I got a little messy and I had a little seepage under parts of the mask, but that's why playing is all about! 

I absolutely loved the look of the texture paste and the high pale gold shine it produced. 

Anyway, enough waffle, here is what I made.....ooohhh I'm excited.....ok ok I'm posting! 

This last photo shows the absolutely gorgeous pale gold shine the paste produces. It is absolutely beautiful and adds such a 'WOW' factor to a plain old piece of card! 

I loved this card so much, I had to try out the other fairie in the stamp set. 
This one, I HAD to do in the typical girly pink and purple colours :-) I couldn't resist for long...

This is the image I coloured and here is the card that I made...I used diecuts for the first time since before Christmas as my beautiful ebosser has been packed away!!! 

Love the sparkle, shine, pretty girly colours. 

Thank you again for taking the time to visit my blog, you are all very talented people who inspire me every day.
