Dreams of Dazzling Diamonds Dance Through My Head!

It seems like I've been using my Dazzling Diamonds quite a bit lately, and it's everywhere!  Who needs salt on their food, sparkles taste just as good, right?

Today I finished off the first of two 'orange' cards I have on the go.  Orange is not a colour I use much, but it's so perfect for this time of year.

Last month I won 2 stamps of my choice over at Pixie Cottage, and I couldn't wait to ink them up!  They are beautiful red rubber, and so nicely etched.  They stamp wonderfully!  This little fairy called to me to piece her wing so that the top one arches out of the card.


You can see the dimension better from an angle, so here's a close-up:


I used my Diamond Glaze on her rubber boots to make them nice and glossy.  The sentiment is from a set by Whiff of Joy called Magical Wishes.

Materials used:  Stamp- Pumpkin Fairy Hannah by Pixie Cottage, Sentiment from Whiff of Joy.  Papers:  Leaves DP and Brown DP by Bella Blvd, Orange DP by Teresa Collins.  Misc:  Copic Markers, Diamond Glaze, Dazzling Diamonds, leaf charm from Stamp & Create, Misc. Ribbon, Pearls by Basic Grey
