It may not look like your average wedding card but this card is for my niece who has just got married to a lovely guy and I know this is more her style. They look more like elves than fairies as they don’t have wings but I would say they are soul mates.
Erin has a fairy sitting on a crescent moon tattoo and although it is not exactly the same as this stamp I thought it would make a nice card for her. From the front the moon just looks a bit grey but just turning the card ever so slightly at an angle shows the lovely pearly moon and some of the glitter or should I say fairy dust. I brayered both red and purple at the top of the card but mostly purple as I got to the bottom left corner and I added some feathery lines to her dress to give her a more floaty feel.

I love doing these brayered cards and this is a nice one for a female of any age group. The project is from The craft stamper mag, April 2009 and at the last crop a few of the other ladies and I had a bit of a brayer workshop. I added the punched leaves later.

I was playing with my brayer again and made this fairy card for Grace. I had painted the fairy in green before I had found out that she has just been to a party dressed as the absinthe fairy (spooky!)

I have also been playing with my melt pot too and made her a pendant using a memory frame, UTEE, and some old earrings.
Once the UTEE had melted I poured it into the frame and while it was still hot I stamped a swirly image into it. When cooled I then swished it with perfect pearls and a little stickles. The filigree metal on the front are pieces from an old pair of earrings and a gem. To distress the frame and little chain dangle I dabbed on some black alcohol ink.
