Ike's Fairy - OSAAT #212

Happy Mother's Day to all my lady friends whether you be a mother of your own children or a sometimes mother figure to nieces, nephews, children of friends, school children, or whatever.  I hope you have a wonderful day.  Last weekend I spent time with my daughter and her family that live in California.  Today I'll be spending some time and having dinner with my daughter that lives here in Texas.  Can't wait to see what my son-in-law is going to cook for us.  He really is a pretty terrific cook.  My own mother passed away a number of years ago and I miss her very much.  Your mom isn't always going to be there, so be nice to her.  ;)

Today I have a card to share for One Stitch at at Time.  Every so often I create a card that takes on a life of its own and just really comes together so well, I hardly have to do anything.  This is one of those cards.  I just love it. 
 As you can see, I used my favorite color - purple.  Here's a closer look at the image.
The base designer paper has a silver metallic image on it which I just love and I used the Silver Metalic ink pad to add some color to the doily so it wouldn't be stark white against the silver background.  I use a light (unmarked) bottle of Stickles for her wings and then used the Lavendar Stickles to add some sparkle to her dress.

Materials Used:
  • Image - StitchyBear - IKEsART - Fairy
  • Sentiment - Lili of the Valley - Pretty Grungy Wishes
  • Cardstock - Stampin Up Orchid Opulence and Metallic Silver; Xpress It Blending Card
