It looks set to last all of another two days! That's basically IT for summer here.*sigh*.
Our seasons seem to blend into each other these days. I remember when I was a girl, Summer meant sun all day and any rain we had, fell at night. Winter was Winter, with LOADS of snow and frost, Spring was fresh and .....oh that's enough of that, let's get onto something a LOT more interesting, like the Fairy Fun Fridays challenge #20!
This week's challenge is.....Make a TENT CARD.
I've never made one before, but they are SO easy and very effective.
HERE. (Thank you Dena).
I thought my special fairy, a freebie for those entering the DT call (and now available to purchase HERE), would be perfect for 'dangling'.
I've sparkled up her wings with Stickles 'Star Dust' and coloured her with Copics.
I actually printed her out twice. I reversed the image on one so I could colour and stick her together, so if she twirls, she's looks the same both sides.
She's attached to the card with nylon 'invisible' sewing thread. (Well, NEARLY invisible in this instance).
The base card is Bazzil and the DP is from My Mind's Eye. (It has a gloss on the diamond pattern which is lovely when it hits the light). The flowers and brads are from my stash and the sprigs of leaves were made with a McGill punch. I fastened the two sides together with eyelets threaded through twice with ribbon to mimic a bow.
Please take a few minutes to visit the Fairy Fun Fridays blog to see the amazing creations by my amazing team-mates! Why not join in with the challenge too? There's always a fab prize on offer and we DO love to see all your fab creations.
Trawling through my Challenge blog list, I noticed that this card would qualify for entry into two challenges.
