Butterfly Fairy

This card drove me crazy ... everything I had envisioned for it ... just failed.  I lost count on the number of patterned papers I cut for it.    They just didn't work right.  I finally ditched the papers and went with stenciling ... I ended up with purple cs that I stenciled wilted violet distress oxide with a Tim Holtz sunburst stencil for the background. 
The image is from Lemon Shortbread and I used my Ohuhu markers on it.  
The sentiment is from Inkadinkado and I used SSS embossing ink and silver embossing powder and I cut it with a stitched banner die. 
I added lots of dots with clear neuvo drops all around her.  I love how the darker purple makes her pop.

I would like to add this card to the following card challenges if I may 
AUD - Fairy Magic - 278
Sweet Stamping - Hair Color
House that Stamps Built - Use a stencil. J721

Thanks for stopping by and having a look-see

Wishing you a great day

I know exactly what you mean!! Sometimes you just can't get a card to work, but I think your save turned out fabulous!! I love the deep, bold purple; it's a great background for this sweet image! Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built.

It turned out great in the end! That fabulous stencilled background is perfect, it really makes the bright colours of the little fairy pop! Thanks for playing along at Sweet Stampin'

I know what you mean - when things just don't go the way we envisioned them. Drives me nuts too. The use of the stencil turned out wonderful tho! Blessing in disguise on this one - it rocks. Thanks for playing over at THTSB.
