Enchanted Birthday!

These little Third Coast fairies are stopping by with a special magically enchanted happy birthday wish.

Enchanted Birthday!

To reverse the fairies with the flowers, the butterflies and the stardust corners, they are all stamped a second time on a mirror image stamp (a flat surface rubber stamp), then on the cardstock.  The images were colored with Copic Markers, then holographic embossing powder was used to give an irredescent look to the wings, stardust corners and sentiment.

Below is a picture showing how extra layers of the wings, leaves and flower petals were popped up to give more dimension to the scene.

Susan the dimension you incorporated into your design is pure enchantment. Pretty sparkle throughout which adds to the magic.
