A little Fairy Magic…….

I created a little scene using Lavinia Stamps. I actually used a sheet of card I had been using to “mop up” my bits of distress oxides, so I used a tiny round sponge and sponged on the dots, then I spritzed a piece of card with brusho I had mixed in water and put in a spray bottle to create another background. I stamped the fairy (Lavinia Stamps) and the sentiment (from the web) onto tissue paper and “mod podged” them onto the background and glittered in places to finish.

Hope you like
