Birthday Fairy

Today's card was inspired by this week's {PIN}spirational challenge (see photo below).  I love stamping on paint chips - it's one of my favourite techniques, and I always love the outcome.  I stamped the fairy on three panels of the paint chip, trimmed, layered with black cardstock and then torn white cardstock.  Lastly I embellished with a metal birthday tag.  Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamp:  Inkadinkado
  • Ink:  StazOn Jet Black
  • Card Base:   Pre-folded card (Dollarama) - sorry about the glare - I couldn't get a photo of the glossy card base without some sort of glare
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Metal Birthday Tag:  Added Touch
