All the sexy fairies

Wow Summer has finally arrived - and don't my poor sore shoulders know it! Ouchy sunburn!!! Note to self - suncream is a good idea when gong out in the hot sunshine lol. Now I just need to find time to finish planting up my pots and take some piccy's for you all.

However here is my latest, summer themed make - Sexy Fiery Fairy.
Firstly I took a pale orange card blank and embossed with a sheena douglas embossing folder which had been inked with yellow and red pretty colour ink pads, to create this letter-press style background.
 Next I used the X-Cut large frame nesting dies - the middle size - to cut an aperture from the card. The fairy was printed inside the card (she was a free download on google) and also onto a separate sheet of card. The second sheet of card was cut into three 1"x1" squares (or inchies) and both fairies were coloured using promarkers, with overlapping areas being coloured in a duller colour on the base image. The inside of the frame was trimmed and the bottom third placed inside the card, over the fairies legs. The inchies were then layered over the base image, slightly off from the main design, using 3D foam pads. Two flower buttons were added to the outside of the card, and two handmade flowers (using orange patterned paper) die-cut using the free spiral flower die from Simply Cards and Papercraft 137.
 Here is the inside of the card.
