Top Tip Tuesday Mystical/Fantasy Challenge

Happy Valentine's Day...and welcome here! For the next 2 weeks it's a Mystical/Fantasy Challenge over at Top Tip Tuesday. And Elaine shares a great Tutorial on a Flap Opening Card...I used her tutorial for my card below...and from 2 weeks ago where I mixed things up, you can see that post and the inside of my card HERE.

Challenge - Mystical/Fantasy
Tutorial - Flap Opening Card

Card Size: 4.25" x 5.5"
Wow, the lighting really picks up the variation in the ink on the doily. It was a white doily and I needed cream, so I used Scattered Straw Distress Ink and lightly sponged on the colour, it looks a little smoother in colour in real life:)

I used Once Upon A Springtime Collection patterned paper from Graphic 45. It had the little fairies on one sheet, and I cut apart a small section for the inside flap of my card...perfect for the mystical theme. I distressed the edges with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

Recipe: Digital Stamp-Emerald Faeries Garden Isla, CTMH SS-Flyin' High, Word Fonts, PP-Graphic 45 Once Upon A Springtime Collection, CTMH CS-Desert Sand, White Daisy & Sorbet, CS-Cream Textured, Distress Ink-Brushed Corduroy, Vintage Photo & Scattered Straw, CTMH Ink-Desert Sand & Bamboo, Nestabilities-Classic Scallop Ovals Lg, Labels 22, Ribbon Banners & Twisted Metal Tags & Accents, Marianne Designs Flourish LR0116, Martha Stewart Butterflies, Wilton 4" Doily, Foam Squares, Crystal Ice Stickles, Pearls, Copics.

Here's a close-up of Isla by Emerald Faeries Garden.

Copics Used:
Skin-E000, E00, E02
Mouth/Dress-R21, R22
Tights/Hat/Wings-YG11, YG17

I added glitter to her wings and a spot in the middle of the fluff, it was easier to see if I darkened the light.
