Grown up fairy..

I love fairies and thought this one was an adult one, so I decided I'd use it for my niece Rachel.



I've had this image for a while, it was a sheet by Audrey from The Lilac Garden. I increased the resolution and made the image larger, and added a few more layers to the decoupage, then gave her a touch of glitter.

Now I don't normally use backing papers, but thought I'd give it a go on this 8 inch square card. So from my stash of hardly used backing paper pads, I used a purple script paper and a blue floral paper which I inked a bit with a purple ink pad. Made the tag, printed the greeting on it, then coloured it using the same the purple ink pad. Added a few pearls, brads, ribbons and some flowers.

Hope you like it..
