The DT team were challenged to use two different fairies on our projects. So here is what I came up with. Did you know that owl fairies are the ones that give fairies their wings? Well you do now LOL!

I think its called a trifold or accordion card LOL!  Anyways, I liked the look and haven't made one of these since last year sometime!  Here is a link to the tutorial I did last year, if you want the score measurements for the folds - {For Charlotte :-)}

The main fairy is from the Polka Doodles All Around and Everywhere CD and she is coloured with my Spectrum Noir markers and then cut out by hand.  Here is a list of the markers used.

Flowers CT3, PP4, PP1
Skin       TN2, FS2, PP2
Dress     HB2, HB3
Hair        GB1, TN2, TN3
Butterfly  PL1, PL2
Wings     PP1, PP2, CR4, CR5

The little owl fairy is a pre-coloured image from the Polka Doodles Bonbon Belles CD and cut out by hand.  I layered both fairies on foam tape as well as the sentiment.  

The papers are from Double Sprinkle of Kraft (Daisy paper and main sentiment) and the Cherryblossom Lane CD (Butterfly paper and little ticket sentiment). 

So there you have it, a little bit of inspiration for you.  Now all you have to do is get creating and go along and enter the challenge, Fairy Time over at Polka Doodles.

And just newly launched on pre-order yesterday is a stunning new collection Home for Christmas, which we know you are going to LOVE!! Plus you can save a huge £4 if you pre-order it before 11th September so don't miss this one, we're all dying to get our mitts on it here on the team!
