Dance with the Fairies

Back in 2009, I picked up the July issue of Cardmaking and Papercraft, a magazine printed in England.  I found inside a 3 page article Fluttering Fairies which showed off some adorable decoupage fairy designs created by Crafter's Companion.  Little did I know that 2 years later, I'd be creating my vary own cards with their Fairyopolis collection.

The fairies come in several pieces which you layer for a decoupage effect.  I layered mine with pop dots.  I used my Spellbinders nestabilities ovals, a purple gel pen, and ribbon from Gecko Galz. The little flower is from my stash.
Please note the stick pin.  I made it myself!  This is the very first time I made one, using the tutorial provided for our July Bella Unique technique challenge at Bella Creations. Here's a link to the technique tutorial:

I used the pearls from the Bella Creations July Southern Charm main kit.  The hardware is Vintaj Natural Brass bead cap, melon spacers and head pin.

The Flying Unicorn is providing the July prize for this Bella Unique challenge.  I was surprised at how easy it is to make my own stick pins.  So I hope you'll give it a try and enter the challenge.  Here's the prize to be won by random draw:

Crafter's Companion is providing the Fairyopolis card making kit as the prize for our Tres Chic challenge this month at Bella Creations. In addition to the prize, all Bella Creations members can take 20% their entire July order.  You'll find the coupon code at the Bella Creations site.  I put the coupon in the July Bella Creates newsletter which is located in the Forum section on the Main Page.
You'll be seeing more fairy cards and stick pins from me this month.
