I started the card by 'ink painting' the background. That meant taking my sponges and making a radiating pattern from the center where I intended to stamp the fairy. I used blue and green ink, then some gold to give it a bit of sparkle. The obvious error here is that I inked into the fairy's skin (most notably her face). I coloured her with markers, used a glitter pen to give her wings some shine, and added a few heat set gems. To finish, I punched the bottom.
While I wasn't entirely happy with the ink background (it smeared well in some areas and made splotches in others) on the whole I did like the card.

hot fix gems (I own these from several companies, so I'm not saying which I used, as I'm not sure)
