*****Fairy Dust JustRite 053

   A favorite JustRite stamp ensemble of mine is Quiet Moments and I chose bits and pieces of it to create my card.  I began by stamping and masking... stamping and masking the long branch with flowers; stamping, cutting and coloring with Copics the little girl; stamping and cutting from vellum,two sets of wings; stamping, cutting and coloring an extra bow; and making  25 little 3d flowers using Spellbinders Blossom 3 and making the border from Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Accents . Once the branches were stamped using Memento   and the flowers were colored with Copics (just in case the 3d flowers didn't cover everything) I stamped the sentiment  found in the same Quiet Moments set.  Fairy dust...hmmmm.... The dryer sheet technique worked very well.  I covered the stamped card with a used dryer sheet (spray adhesive was used to attach the dryer sheet to the card) and then liberally sprinkled Art Institute's glitter (color: Mimosa).  Excess glitter was bushed away and then I began the process of  constructing the card.  The flowers (directions below) were glued to the branches, the little girl's bow was pop dotted to her dress, the two sets of wings were put together and "ruffled" for a 3d effect and attached to the little girl's back with a tiny seed pearl . Now she is a fairy and she chose to climb up and settle on a branch to keep a watchful eye on things!
      Note: I made the flowers by using the smallest die from Blossoms 3 and cutting the flowers from white tissue paper.  I used Lumin Arts paint in various shades from light pink to dark pink to color each flower shape.  While wet, I placed it on the end of the paint brush and pinched and swirled to obtain the desired shape.  They were then set aside to dry before attaching them to the card.  Liquid Pearls was applied to the border punch to add a sheen to that element of the card.
   It is finished and I hope viewing this card will provide you a Quiet Moment and give you a time of reflection for all that is beautiful in your life.
