Fairy frame 2

Back in the autumn I created a fairy frame using the copper coloured pine cones. When I bought the embellishments in the spring summer catalogue from the 'Falling in Love' suite I knew how the next Fairy frame would look. The daisy is mounted on florist wire wrapped in Washi tape. I have tried to give the impression of being very close to the ground using ribbons to create the grass. The background is embossed with the wood grain embossing folder then covered with a number of different ribbons including some of the in colour lace and sprinkled with die cut leaves. To the front ribbons have been tied in bundles of three  with linen thread then wrapped around to the back, leaving the ends showing to add more texture.Then up front some green card cut with the fringe scissors.Lastly we have the fairy sat on the toadstool, fussy cut coloured with the marker pens. The close up pictures give you more detail than with the naked eye...... hence to the eye my colouring in looks fine in these pictures it looks a bit iffy..... I have painted the frame as the whole thing looked a bit dark. It has turned out just as I pictured it.

These are a close up of the 'Falling In Love' embellishments. So pretty

 In the background are die cut leaves from the 'Stylish Stems' framelits set. This are stuck to layers of ribbons.

These are close ups of the ribbons and  grass cut with the fringe scissors.

 You can see the lace in the background on this one.

Well I love it, hope you do to.

This is the previous frame.
