It's Fairy Dust!!

I won a few digital images from The Stamping Chef a while ago. When it was my good friend and ex colleague Amanda's birthday the other day, I just had to make her a birthday card with this Fairy Dust image. We have such a fun time at work and Manda always makes me laugh. Also, I never knew any British person that loves Chinese/ Japanese/ Taiwanese food so much!! I always said that she was born in the wrong country because she never really likes any British food! So here is the card:
Manda has a great sense of humour and I just knew this card would make her smile!
To achieve the colour effect on the embossing piece, I simply applied blue ink on one side of the Cuttlebug D'vine Swirl embossing folder first before I embossing it on a white piece of card. This is just another great fun way of using your embossing folder. You will be able to find this technique easily on YouTube. Here is an example.
The image was coloured in by using Copic Ciao marker pens.  For extra shine, Crystal Stickle glitter glue was added on the fairy wings and Glossy Accents and a little bit of pink glitter were applied on the "Fairy Dust"!

I was inspired by using the below sketch from Friday Sketch Challenge #76. I wanted to keep the diamond shape in the middle but also wanted to add some interest to the image. So I fuzzy cut some parts of the fairy image which stick out of the diamond shape. Then, I attached the fairy image to the card by using foam tapes, which created an extra dimension.
I hope you like this card. Well, I certainly do. No matter how many times I look at it, it just makes me giggle!! ^_^

Hope to see you soon with another card again.
