Birds of a Feather and a Fairy Together

I just got my new set of Letraset Aqua Markers.  They are so cool. It's like doing watercolors with a marker...more like paint than any other waterbased markers I've used.

Here is my first card made with the markers. I used one of my newest sets of Crafty Secrets Clear Stamps called, Fairy Wishes.

I am entering several challenges with this card:
Always Crafting - Fairies and Mermaids
Cupcake Craft Challenges - Birds of a Feather
I Love Promarkers - Anything goes, must use ProMarkers
Craft Your Passion - Things with Wings

I stamped the image in Memento Ink and then used my markers and a waterbrush to "paint" the image. I distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Walnut Ink. 

I applied glitter to the fairy wings, and added the sentiment, which is from Flourishes' Cherries and Peaches Set.

The flower is made with Hollyhock CS from CTMH, and the beads are from WalMart. I used the
 Tattered Florals Die by Tim Holtz and inked the edges with his Distress Ink in Broken China.

The green cs is stamped with various images from the Fairy Wishes set, as is the white background piece. 
Since I didn't have any real "fairyland" paper, I made my own! The turquoise paper is distressed using water and crinkling it. I then distressed it with sandpaper and inked it.

The ribbon was melted with my heat of my all-time favorite techniques. I added gems to balance the design.

I hope you like it...and thanks for stopping by.
