Gum Nut Fairy in Red

Today, I wanted to share this sweet image from Elisabeth Bell - Gum Nut Fairy. I chose an easel card and red tones to create my design.

I stamped my image with tuxedo black ink on Cryogen paper. I colored her with Copic markers - skin E000, E00, R0000, R20; wings R0000, R00, R01; hair E25, E31, E50; outfit, flower, hat R35, R37, R39. I used Shabby Pink Frantage. To the edges of all my paper I used distressed ink Frayed Burlap. The dies I chose are Cherry Lynn Flourish, Marianne Heart, Sizzix Heart, and Magnolia Doo Hickey Big Cozy Snowflake, Swirly Butterfly, Vintage Daisy, Doily Flower and So Wrapped Tilda Lace. To complete my design bling, flowers, ribbon, cheese cloth, tulle spayed with Candy Apple Glitter Mist. The DP is from Magnolia "A Merry Little Christmas".
