Enchanted Cards

Following on from my Fairy Folk layout class at SENZ, I have been captured by the whimsical genre of enchanted little people!  So during the week I put together some cards that I intend to save for my daughters birthday and her 2 BFF's birthdays later this year!  And I have to say that my new WRMK envelope making board has come in very handy!

First, here is a totally OTT card (this one's for Meg!)


Florists wire attached to a painted chipboard archway, punctuated with flowers, stems, pearlescent stamens, silver birds nest complete with tiny pearl eggs and some little toadstools on the corner. G45 Once Upon a Springtime provided the little fairy and bluebird images which are ever so lightly brushed with a Tattered Angels aqua glitter glaze.  I made the white resin bird at the top of the arch from a cake decorating mold! The centre of the arch is cut away and replaced with soft baby muslin.

Here's a closer look...



Next up are a couple of cards I made using some tiny paper tole fairy images by the famous Cicely Mary Barker.  I picked these up at SENZ,  knowing instantly that they would make gorgeous additions to my stash!

My 'yellow' card...


And a closer look...
 
Finally, my 'pink' card...

And a closer look...

Paper tole huh?!!!  Who'd have thought...

Hope you have enjoyed the images  - leave me a comment and tell me if you dabble in paper tole from time to time.

Happy crafting!
