The Wish Tree Fairy
I made this card using o ne of my new Lavina stamps, and had great fun just playing with it on Sunday. The background here has been distressed with TH inks in cloudy skies, broken china, Victorian velvet, wild honey and forest green, and where some of the colours looked too bright, I wiped part of the colour away with a wet wipe and then toned it down with ancient linen. The fairy tree has been stamped in the middle with archival ink and first clear embossed, and then embossed again with copper, pink and green perfect pearls to give it more shine and depth, it does not show up so well on the photo. The vine on the left hand side has been hand doodled, and *wish* is a sizzix die cut, Then I placed a piece of acetate over it, which has been stamped and stickled along the bottom. The pearls on the vine and in the tree have also been stuck to the acetate, and the little fairy die cut has been inked, glittered with some gold ice stickles, and then sat on the step.
Was great fun to make something different, and the Lavinia stamps are just gorgeous.
I am entering this for *Simon says stamp and show childhood memories*, because I was firmly convinced that a fairy lived in the tree in our garden, and I would see here if only I could stay awake long enough....

"The Wish Tree Fairy". And I do have some questions for you
if it's allright. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of these responses look like written by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are posting on additional online sites, I would like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list of every one of all your community sites like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
