Fairy Flower Delivery

Happy Friday, my friends! It's release day over at A Day For Daisies. We are showcasing images from September Club Kit this week.


We are combining this week's release with a new challenge over at A Day For Daisies Blog and the new challenge theme is "Tag - You are It!"


The image that I used is called Fairy Flower Delivery and she is printed on Papertrey Ink's Rustic White cardstock, colored with Copic markers then fuzzy cut out. I added some Star Dust Stickles to her wings for a little shine.


For the background, I started with a piece of die-cut watercolor tag and dragged it through a pool of ink created using Salty Ocean, Squeezed Lemonade and Picked Raspberry distress inks with lots of water. To get the very subtle colors, I spritzed the tag with water before dragging it through the ink pool and spritzed it with more water afterwards. I also stamped a little flower bush on the lower right corner and embossed the piece with PTI's Wrought Iron Impression Plate for more interest. The sentiment is from Beautiful Words set by Simon Says Stamp.

That's it for now. Don't forget to find out what the other design team members came up with for the challenge using this beautiful release here. You can also find the newly released images here.


Have a beautiful day and thanks for stopping by!
