So this is a photo of Jordyn at 6 months old, when she still had red in her hair, normally her hair would be in a large single curl but I forgot to wet it before we left for this shoot. With the little tips of her ears I have always thought she looks like a sweet little fairy...uh no, mommy emotions taking over...tears are coming...oh I'm such a sap!
Circles are punches and flowers are from Walk In My Garden, one of my favorite flowers to use. Gosh the paper is a bit of everything so I couldnt even begin with that...I had JUST recieved some Tim Holtz distress inks in the mail as I was doing this so there is some inks used on all the flowers (its just enough to show the edges a bit better)I used decorative scissors to add some more interest to the flowers...Small flowers and butterfly's are Marth punches, almost forgot, so is the leaf punch that is done in vellum so its a bit hard to see....(I get almost all my punches from "my" craft lady at local flea markets, usually they are $4!!!)
This little fairy was from a card my Dad gave me, she was so sweet that I cut her out to use again and thought she was perfect here! The glitter on her wings inspired me to add more glitter...I couldnt add another pix here to show the detail but all butterflys have glittered wings as well as spots in all the flower centers!
I hope you all can see this right, I had to do a few shots to try and show this...this is done with UTEE (Ultra Thick Embossing Enamel) and I found the technique on youtube.com done by Two Peas In A Bucket (my favorite videos to watch)

I think this is the BEST thing I have found in awhile and can not wait to do MORE! I took there advice and pushed in gems before it cooled. I only did 2 layers so its not as raised as it could be!Thank you so much for checking this out....I really hope you all love this as much as I do!
