Emerald Faeries Challenge #1


PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR MY TICKLED PINK STAMPS PREVIEW CARD


WOW - it's finally here - the very first challenge for The Emerald Faerie Garden and it's an easy one to get you started - ANYTHING GOES. You can check out what the rest of the DT have come up with and the challenge rules at our blog HERE.

I decided to think outside the "card" as it were and do something a little different. I found these fabulous glass tea-light candle holders at my local $2 type store and knew I would find a use for them somewhere down the track.
I've used the gorgeous Kayla and Twinkie - available HERE. I used the digis as I had to re-size them to fit inside the globe and print one in reverse to they would look OK as the globe spun around. I coloured them both up to match and then cut the "front"one out. I then stuck the "back" picture up on a backlit window and used a glue that gives me "moving" time to line the 2 images up. Then I trimmed off the excess on the other side.

I wish you could see this IRL - I have overdosed a bit on the glitter - LOL - it really does sparkle like fairyland as it spins around with the butterflies, wings and flowers all sugared with bling.

xXx
