Just Us Girls #431 - Trend Week

Hello everyone!  We have a fun Trend Challenge over at Just Us Girls.  Carol chose as the trend "mythical" or "magical". 
 
I was on a design team for a now defunct stamp company called Paper Makeup Stamps.  Many of the stamps the company designed were fairies.  I went searching through my stash of them and found this silhouette of a praying fairy. I thought it would make a nice sympathy card.  I stamped the image using Versafine onyx black ink using the MISTI to get a good solid image.  I then die cut it with a stitched rounded square die and while it was still in the die, I used a soft brush and inked some yellow ink around the image.  I then just mounted it on some pattern paper, added the embossed sentiment, flower, and sequins.  It's also spritzed with shimmer spritz for a more magical look.
 
You can see more from the JUGs design team and our March guest on the JUGs blog.
 
Thanks for stopping by!

That praying fairy makes a great sympathy card. I love how you inked the yellow around her giving off a soft glow. Beautiful!
