A fairy for Dawn....


Well if anyone still visits, I made this for my Sister. The beautiful  Fairy is by Linda Ravenscroft, from the Craft Creations CD, Enchanted. Although  Dawn is an Aquarius I liked Pisces, so decided to use her. I changed the colours in the program then let it turn it into a decoupage, then I saved it as a jpg, took it into Photoshop Elements and split up the file into individual components, then saved them as png files which I imported into Inkscape.  I traced them  in Inkscape and adjusted the decoupage to my liking, then I used my wonderful black cat cougar to cut it all out, so if I need to print and cut another one I have the file ready to go. YES!! 
All the lettering was printed directly onto the purple card with my lazer printer, then I foiled it with my foil master, except the 50 which I cut with my cougar, so nothing was cut by hand ....not even the circles..Just a shame the flash intensified the glitter it was a bit more subtle, hope you like it.  
Oh and don't forget to go and check out Donna's weekly candy, (link on my sidebar), I was lucky enough to win it a couple of weeks ago, so I have some beautiful roses and more lovely charms to play with.. thanks Donna.

Would love to know what you think...
