Baby Fairy Birthday

Enjoyed making this card and candle (scroll down) for a friend's 25th birthday.

Mo Manning Baby Fairy Sip, Elizabeth Whisson, copic

The stamp is Mo Manning - Baby Fairy Sip. I used a plain Copic B0000 background but then added in some butterflies with my Copics using a Prima Marketing butterfly stencil - thanks to Marie Gamber from her background class at Color Me Creative for this technique.

Some more pictures:

The fairy wings, butterflies, flower and fairy hair has clear glitter pen added. Glossy accents are on the flower and the dots on the fairy's clothes.

The flowers are from Kaisercraft and Green Tara - all originally white. I coloured them with Copic R00 various ink, R02 and R05 markers then added colourless blender various ink. They then got sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Vanilla Breeze and Stickles stardust added to the tips.

Just had to put in another picture...this one has slightly different lighting to the first photo I took and I just couldn't decide between the two...so I've added both :-)
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
1. Through the Craft Room Door - Anything Goes;
2. Papertake Weekly Challenge - Anything Goes;
3. Creative Craft Challenges 2 #26 Anything Goes;
4. The Shabby Tea Room - Week #200 So Romantic - inspired by this photo and must include roses; and
 5. Creative Creations Challenge - Anything Goes.

And this is the candle. I did the technique that I explained a few posts ago here. I used stamps from Flourishes Bloomin' Aussie Florals and the bible verse is from Our Daily Bread Designs Scripture Collection 11.

I am entering the candle in Craft My Life - All Crafts Challenge December/January - Anything Goes challenge (not a card).
