Joanna Sheen samples - fairy silhouettes

Hiya everyone,

Don't die of shock that I'm actually sharing a card with you will all you? Lol!!!
As you all may or may not know I'll be moving house shortly so everything is still a little hectic. In the last few days I've had umpteen Crafters Companion samples to make, a magazine project and my cardmaking workshop on saturday to prepare for as well as entertain my 5 month old. My mum has come round today to look after Tayla to give me chance to try and finish the remainder as I'm seeing my solicitor on wednesday so we'll need to start packing in a few days. It's sooo exciting and I really can't wait to move - we'll have so much more space!!!

Anyhoo, my card today has been made with the new fairy silhouette stamps from Joanna Sheen that were launched recently which you can buy from here. There are 2 main images on the sheet and they are £9.99 with free P+P.
The papers are from an old dovecraft 6x6 paperstack that I had knocking about and the flowers and crochet lace are from wild orchid crafts. I stamped the image with stazon black ink onto lilac paper and mounted it onto purple card. I added some black stickles glitterglue around the image as I cut it out by hand and it tidied up the edges. a little glamourdust glitter to the wings and the image was suitably sparkly Lol! I wanted it to look a little more gothic than normal for a bit of a change. I accented the flower centres on the paper with a few lilac gems and the stamped sentiment is included on the sheet. I just love fairies don't you?
