Shabby Fairy for the Sweet Stop......

Good Morning!!
Today I have another Belles and Whistles
Fairy card to show you!  When I use them
I just want to use flowery papers and lots of
white distressing, texture stuff. LOL
I have followed the gorgeous sketch from the Sweet Stop.
( I just rotated the sketch 90 degrees)

The image was colored with distress inks and twinkling h20's.
I filled in her wings with my glitter pen.

Here is a shot to show the textures that I mean! I can't  make
a card these days without the cheesecloth and then when I
add that I HAVE to do the others because they all go so
nicely together, I think.

In case you want to know how I do it I first give it a generous slather
of white Gesso. When that dries I slather on the Distress Crackle
Paint. When that dries I dot the Snow Tex on with a paintbrush.
I know it is to create the look of snow but I just love the texture
it gives and it doesn't look like snow if you don't have a wintery
image or scene!! Right?  I added a bunch of it on the flower.

Papers ~ Webster's Pages
Inks ~ distress inks, twinkling h20's
Accessories ~ lace, ribbon and flowers ~ WOC
Border on mat ~ PTI, Pearls ~ Melissa Frances
Gesso, crackle paint and Snow-tex ~ Hobby Lobby

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have
a wonderful day!!  The girls only have half day and my hubby
is out of town so I think we will do a little shopping and go to
Bahama Bucks. That is there new favorite place. They make
real snow cones and let the girls throw snowballs!! LOL
Makes them feel like they are at home again :)
