* Vera Lane Studio: Tree Gal and Firefly Fairy

Hello Friends!


I'm here today to share my last August DT post for Vera Lane Studio. It's hard to believe it's September this week; this year is simply flying by!

Our monthly theme for August is 'Add Some Sparkle', and so I did just that!



Here is my first card - and yes ... it's a Christmas card! I used the wonderful Tree Gal and Countdown set for this one. I just love the sentiment, as I'm not into Christmas and all it's over-hyped commercialism, so this suits my mood just fine!



I coloured the image with marker pens, added glitter and fussy cut it. I made a background with Distress Oxides. I matted the background onto turquoise pearlescent card and added a wide strip of glitter tape, cut into a banner. The image was popped up on foam pads with some gold thread secured under her tree hat. The sentiment was cut into strips, inked and glued at jaunty angles! Some gold sequins and iridescent dot stickers finished off the card.



My second card was made with one of the Firefly Fairies
These little fairies are so small and delicate and beautiful.

 

Again I coloured the image with markers and made a Distressed Oxide background. The fairy has glittered wings. The sentiment is a wonderful inspirational statement and so this card can be used for any occasion. The background was mounted onto a black, pearly turquoise and glimmering gold mat before being taped to the card base.
