Ladybug fairy

this is my DT card for the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge blog for July. This month we're sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps and I've made the card using their Ladybug stamp.

I started with an 8 x 8 white card blank. In a recent issue of Quick Cards made easy the free gift was some Fairy Dust papers and stamps which I've used. I cut 2 panels of black card to cover each side of the card front, matted the pink fairy paper on to them, and then the panels to the card front.

I printed the Ladybug digistamp and coloured it using a mix of Promarkers (Gold, Tulip, Cardinal Red, Meadow Green) and Spectrum Noirs (TB1, TB2, TB3) then added sparkle to the wings using a Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen. Using the Tonic Deco Layering die set I die cut the image, a blue mat from a Hobbycraft Ombre Array pad and another mat from black card. These were layered up and fixed to the card front using foam pads.

I stamped a sentiment from the free gift and cut that and a black mat from the same Tonic die set. I fixed this to a blue band the same width as one of the panels and fixed the whole thing to the card front using glue. I finished the card off by adding some Craftwork Cards card candi in two shades of pink to match the pink backing paper.

I hope you like the card, any comments are much appreciated and please join us this month at the Fairy and Unicorn Challenge.
