Silver Fairy in Violet & Rose

*If you're looking for my Candy you can find it here*

Happy Tuesday Stampers!  I'm here again with my regular Tuesday inspiration post for Dies to Die for, and today I'm using another of the wonderfully talented Sylvia Zet's images.  Just love her work the stamps are sooo sweet.  If you follow me on Facebook you've probably seen me share this image when I first coloured it whilst at my parents and when I chose the colours I actually had the new Pion papers in mind.  However I wasn't sure they were going to arrive in time for my make and so I went ahead and made the card up with another Pion collection....and then guess what?  Yup, those new Pion papers arrived with the postie on Saturday.  Oh well, at least I have them all ready for my next make.

This is my finished card, I used Silver Fairy, from Whimsy Stamps and the crner lace die is also made by Whimsy.  The shape is made with a Martha Stewart PATP punch set.

She's coloured with my Inktense pencils plus a few watercolour pencils for the skin and hair.
Skin: Flesh Pink (W), Pale Vermillion (W), Saddle Brown
Hair: Raw Sienna (W), Raw Umber (W)
Clothing and Wings: Deep Violet, Dark Purple, Carmine Pink, Shiraz

I finished her off with some stickles on her wings, but the camera wasn't really picking it up too well.

I added some flowers and ribbon from TRG.

I finished off with this lovely bead trim and a La-La Land butterfly die.

I used more papers from the same collection to decorate the inside and give a space to write a message.

Items Used:


  1. Wow - lovely colors on this one! Love the stamp and papers chosen. Love what you did with the corners - they create great movement on the card. :)
