I Love Mo Channing's Fairies

I have had this this Mo Manning Slightly Chubby Fairy digital image all painted and waiting.  I might also add I am in love with another one of Mo's fairies too (Housework Fairy)!   Did you know you can now get her images in clear and rubber?  They are 'flying off the shelves like hot cakes too'!  I am having a hard time finding them both in one place on-line.  :-)

Soooooo, I printed my fairy that I purchased from Mo Manning.  I painted her with Twinkling H2O's Cherry Sorbet,  Buttercup, Warm Pecan,  Almond Beige, and Solar Gold.  Her wings were done using Glossy Accents applied with the trusty little bottle below:


I have 4 or 5 of these filled with the Glossy Accents, Dimensional Glue, Glitter Glue, and Gesso, etc.  I also keep a fine fine beading needle in case I forget to put the top back on before putting it away, etc.  The tip of the bottle allows me to get right up to the edge of whatever I am doing with it.  When I bought mine I think they were around 2.75 each.  HERE is the most reasonable I could find at a quick look.  If you look for them locally they can be found in wood working shops and places where they sell supplies for tying fly fishing flies.  :-)
After applying the GA I added Deco Art Glamour Dust Crystal Glitter to them and then shook off the extra.  I used Stickles Diamond over the areas I had painted with Solar Gold and then mounted a 2mm pearl with GA on her ear.

The Backgournd DP's are Frances Meyer Pink/White Polka dots and KandCo Garden Medley Embossed papers.

A while back a friend came to stamp and brought her Ellison Clouds Die with some other stuff.   I borrowed it to save the clouds for this card.  Here is what the ones I have look like.  I also used my Magic Matter disk to get the outside rims using the DP I used for the BG frame.  Then I turned them over on a Pergamano/embossing pad and used a stylus to give them depth, then mounted using 1/8" pop dots and leaving room for the ribbon underneath.  I mounted the fairy using 1/16" pop dots.  Michaels organza ribbon was mounted and the bow tied with my Bow-Easy.

The corners were done with the same Glossy Accents Glue Applicator.  Then pushed the peal into it and applied Deco Art Glamour Dust Crystal to it.  Let it set for a minute before shaking it off.  That helps it keep its rim a little better. The heart pearl button in the lower right-hand corner, with the shank removed, was purchased at Hancock Fabrics.

So some credits are due here.  I first fell in love with 'Slightly Chubby Fairy' after seeing it HERE.  I saw the corners done on the same blog HERE.  One very talented lady, Jenny Gropp at One Krafty Kat!!

Thanks for stopping by to look and share.

I wonder how many people realize the steps to creating a gorgeous card like this one, Shirley. I was amazed just reading all you did. I guess we do it without realizing how intricate it can sometimes be.

I LOVE those bottles...if they don't clog and you can get into tiny places, I'm in. Thanks for the links.

Beautifully colored fairy.
