Playful Faeries

Good morning!  Alicia here today with a Playful Faerie card using several Poppystamps Faerie Die sets.  I just love playing with these dies, there are so many combinations but on this card I decided to cut all my faeries out of vellum.  I liked the whispy look with the water color background. 

To create this scene I first began with inking a background.  I also inked an extra piece of 5.5" x 3"ish piece for the grass layer that I would later die cut.  I used lots of water on the ink so I used my heat gun to dry it a bit and let it sit for a while until it was completely dry before die cutting.

I die cut my kraft paper frame and adhered with pop dots.

I then went about cutting, several faeries with wings out of vellum.  I also stamped, embossed then water colored my mushroom images.  Oops, I almost forgot the vellum cloud!  Then I went about adding the die cut pieces to my scene.  Finally, I added a touch of clear shimmer pen to my faeries.
