Uovo di Pasqua con fata

 
Questa card è fatta di due pezzi: un negativo (giallo) e un positivo (carta patterned).
La parte gialla è uno scarto, che da un anno stava nello scatolone degli avanzi ad aspettare il suo momento! :D LOL L'avevo tagliato con la fustella Sizzix Framelits Eggs (la più grande del set) da un cartoncino da acquerello pesante e avevo usato l'interno, mentre il negativo rimanente era rimasto inutilizzato.
Ho colorato il negativo con i Distress Inks, con la tecnica dello smooshing. Quando il colore è stato asciutto ho tagliato due bordi con un punch Tonic e l'ho incollato su un cartoncino bianco piegato a metà.
N.B.: Ho fatto un errore: ho tagliato i due bordi con il punch in modo sfalsato: il disegno non è simmetrico :(
L'uovo è ricavato dalla carta patterned Springtime Posy. Ho sfumato i bordi con i Distress inks e l'ho incollato all'interno del negativo.
Volevo assolutamente usare la bellissima fustella Liliac Fairy (Tonic), che ho ricevuto da Linda (Grazie!!) come premio per il suo ultimo Blog Candy a sorpresa (assieme ad alcuni stupendi timbri che invece purtroppo non ho ancora avuto il tempo di provare).
Ho tagliato la fata da un avanzo di cartoncino nero e poi l'ho ripassata con una dose generosa di Wink of Stella. Purtroppo non sono riuscita a fotografare il luccichio...
Ho aggiunto alcuni elementi ricavati da altri avanzi di cartoncino: il rametto di fiori in alto, tagliato con la fustella Petite Peony Cluster (Creative Expression), un mezzo cerchio con il sentiment che ho tagliato con un punch circolare e due farfalle tagliate con un altro punch (una è doppia: carta sotto e vellum sopra). Sul rametto e sul mezzo cerchio ho dato colore con i Distress inks. Poi ho passato del Wink of Stella su tutto.
Per rifinire ho aggiunto qua è là parecchi stickers color oro. Anche le antenne delle due farfalle grandi le ho fatte riciclando alcuni minuscoli pezzettini di stickers. :)

Con questo progetto intendo partecipare ai seguenti challenge:

Oh Alice, this is absolutely beautiful!! So wonderfully designed. Glad the yellow negative piece of card was used after it had patiently waited all that time :D. Gorgeous shimmery fairy with the lovely flowers over her head. Fabulous use of die cuts and gold peel off stickers. A really delightful card my friend :). Debra x

Love these spring colors and yay for being able to use the year old negative piece! I never think ahead to get the space in the right place when I die cut! No one will notice the scallops aren't symmetrical either, sometimes it's just impossible to make them even if you're using a snippet. The design is so pretty with the nice blues in the background, and I love the magical & fairy. Also very much like the way you've arranged the bouquets around the egg shaped opening of this card. Lots of great design details. TFS & Hgus

Alice, this is absolutely delightful! You have built a little magical garden right into a card front, and I for one would love to live there! The soft colours are so beautiful and that amazing frame, wow!! The fairy is amazing, sitting amid all those whimsical flowers and glittery butterflies! This is one of my new favourites of yours, love love love!!!

I do hope you've been feeling better and having enjoyable weather. We've had more snow this couple of weeks than we had all winter. A couple of nice days, but the temperatures are very cold and the wind has been severe. So much for an early spring. lol. sending hugs :)

This is beautiful Alice, so many lovely little touches.
I also have scraps in a box for years, it is very satisfying when you can use any of them!

well, done one utilising so many things there Alice, your attention to detail is wonderful, and yes, I agree just capturing that glittery look is hard I gave up on one my creations recently tried on five different days!
Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration!

I wouldn't have noticed the punched borders aren't symmetrical, and I don't think it matters that they aren't. Beautiful fairy, I like how the sentiment almost looks like her purse. So beautiful with the die cut flowers placed in the upper part as well. Lots of detailing, perfectly planned layout.
