Magical Fairy Postcard

Magical Fairy Postcard

Another wonderful day in Manhattan! I drove in and there was a lot more traffic on the way in that I thought there would be. I did look for a parking space but they are doing so much construction there are very few left to be had so I parked in the garage and walked the 24 blocks to see Diane and Jim. I love visiting with them, such amazing people! Jim had a new iPad Pro and the Apple Pencil, I want one!! After my little visit I headed downtown to The Ink Pad and hung out with Barbara and Abby. We had burgers and fries from the Corner Bistro Bar for lunch and they were delicious! I got back to the garage around 4:00 and headed out over the RFK Bridge which was really backed up. I hate when that happens because the bridge shakes and you can feel it while you are sitting in the car! It almost bounces! Not a fan at all. When I got home my parents were out so I retrieved Winston and went back over for a sandwich for dinner when they got home. While I was puttering around an idea for a card popped into my head so I sat down and put it together before it disappeared! That’s today’s card!

The card base is Neenah Solar White 110lb Card Stock. I used a Mini Ink Blending Tool and some Simon Says Stamp Audrey Blue Ink to make the sky right on the card front. Across the bottom is a piece of Gumball Green that I cut out with the Lawn Fawn Meadow Borders Lawn Cuts. I cut out some tulips and a butterfly and colored them in with Copics. They are adhered with Foam Tape. The postcard, postage and cancelled stamp are from the Lawn Fawn You’ve Got Mail Photopolymer Stamp Set, I colored them in with Copics and then used the new Coordinating Lawn Cuts to cut them out. My fairies are from the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends Photopolymer Stamp Set, they too are colored in with Copics and cut out with the Coordinating Lawn Cuts. I adhered the fairies with E-Z Runner and the PostCard with Fun Foam and E-Z Runner. A few Pretty Pink Posh Amethyst, Orchid, Pansy Purple, Pink Blush and Marigold Sequins are scattered about and I added some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush Pen to the fairies wings! I love the way the little scene came out and the greeting is just plain fun! I hope that you like my card for today! Thank you so much for continuing to stop by and visit me! I really appreciate it! Have a magical Sunday! 🙂
