Garden Fairy

I worked on a home decor project instead of a card today.

I used a 10"x10" basswood canvas and painted its edges brown.  I then cut out my scene and adhered it to the canvas.  The entire scene is from a digital Cricut cartridge called "Dimensional Scenes - Fairy Tales."  I cut it at 10."  I used foam tape on the fairy, some of the grass, and two of the butterflies.  The butterflies are from the "Kate's ABCs" cartridge.  I hid the face on the fairy and used a stamp from Peachy Keen instead.  It is from the Black Eyed Peaches Face Assortment.  I added a little detail with a white gel pen.  I finished this piece off with some enamel dots for the flower centers, Wink of Stella on the butterfly wings, and dark blue Stickles on the blue of the fairy wings.

I made this for the following challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut: things with wings
My Sheri Crafts: create something 3D - with lots of dimension
City Crafter Challenge Blog: fairy tale element
Crazy 4 Challenges: emerald green color
The ABC Challenge Blog: G is for Grand - anything but a card
Pile It On: garden creatures
