Mystical Magic

This is one of my all time favourite CD images. It's from Joanna Sheen's Victorian Angels & Fairies and I've been wanting to use it in Craft Artist for a while. I created the bp using one from the Tempting Turquoise add on kit and the image from the CD. In Craft Artist, I had already isolated the giant lily from the top of the picture and used this as part of the flower cluster in the bottom left hand corner. All the items I used are:

  • Frame from Tempting Turquoise kit, bp from Tempting Turquoise add on kit (both from Crafty Ann's)
  • Flower from Denim Lace Kit (from Miriam)
  • Flourish from Modern Lace and another flourish from Swirling Memories (both from Daisy Trail)
  • Angel's and Fairies CD from Joanna Sheen
It's fabulous being able to create such 3D looking cards without a lot of height - here in the UK, we have a complicated and costly postage pricing so being able to keep cards to a standard letter size is a bonus. I don't just like to send totally flat cards though, so I cut certain parts out and layer them with either 1mm foam or glue gel that I have make the height I want to.
If you're interested, I've done a tutorial about how I do this without having to print the entire topper off each time which saves both paper and a heck of a lot of ink! This card will still go standard letter size.
I'm entering my card into these challenges:
