Hi everyone, ready to have some fabulous summer fun?

I really had a great time creating this Flower Fairy out of my Sundrops and Sea Foam Flowers. I don't know what the flower is called that I used around her waist, so if you do let me know!
First I began with a Sin City Rubber Stamp, you can use any form that doesn't have too much detail to it and is easily cut out. Keep in mind that some flowers are transparent and you can see the stamped lines through the petals so you want to remove as much of that as you can before assembling the flowers. For the skirt, I cut a piece of yellow cardstock out and glued the petals to it. For the bodice, I took a white Signo pen and marked out the lines.
Because I cut out the arm, so it could lay over the top of her dress and hold a Sea Foam flower in her hand I used some Helmar Liquid Scrap Dots to give it some strength and keep it propped up. I used some ColourArte Twinkling H2o's on her wings to give them some sparkle and coloring in her hair with some Design Memory Craft PITT pens.
I love how the Sea Foam flowers come apart and look like tiny flowers all by themselves, so I arranged them along the ground and placed one in her hand. Sewing on your handmade paper adds so much to your card and so does all the metallic sparkle that is in this paper. From now on I am buying metallic gift wrapping paper because it makes the best handmade paper!
To make your own flower fairy you just need a Garden Press and go walk around in your garden collecting flowers. I remove the stamens and pistons from most flowers. The "juicer" they are the more I take them apart. Some flowers keep their color better than others and you just need to experiment with some to see how they do. My Sun Drops need about a week of drying time while the Sea Foams which are a papery kind of flower are almost dry immediately.
