Chloe and her Magic Wand!

April 10th 2011




I have made this card especially for the latest Magical Monday Challenge Blog which has a theme of 'Magical Pearls and Swirls' and a requirement that a 'Magical' Image be used on the card. I have used one of the cute 'Chloe Faerie' images from CS Designs.



I have handmade the back ground paper based on a 'tutorial' from Janna Werner about making artsy backgrounds. I used a piece of patterned paper and spread a thin layer of gesso over it with a credit card then stamped a grid style stamp over it and added swirl stamps to two sides of the paper. I've added little pearls to the swirls and little diamantis to Chloe's wand and shoes as well as glitter to her wings! I've cut out around the image and mounted it on two different coloured circles. The sentiment is a rub on.


I have also entered this card at Card Makin Mamas "embellished" challenge! Stamptacular Sunday have a 'girls & swirls' theme this week! The Flutter by Wednesday Challenge Blog have a challenge using a butterfly, fairy or angel image! Dream Valley Challenges have a "things with wings" challenge so Chloe has flown over there too!
