Mag inspiration no 2

Very exciting title! Yeah!
Hope you are all having a lovely day. We have had a day of sunshine, yeah-hoo, may still be very cold but it was dry and sunny.
I have being busy making my second magazine inspired card this week.  Well, that is what they are for, isn't it?

Lots of freebies on this one. The backing paper is a digital freebie from Sugarplum Paperie - Paper Daisies.  These are lovely papers because no matter what weight of paper you print them out on they have a lovely textured look.   The image is another freebie this time from a magazine. Don't know what mag, but the stamps are called "Fairies of the season" by Sarah Williams. She is the summer Fairy, I just needed to think SUN for a while, but doesn't she just have a carefree attitude?

I inked her up with Archival ink in black and then coloured her with pencils.  I glittered her wings with glamour dust -  love that stuff, it is very fine and great for small areas like this - though you cannot see it! I thought that there was a lot of "white" space on the top left corner so I just punched it out with a corner punch. As the backing paper has a distressed effect, I distressed the stamped image to match.
The sentiment is a papermania stamp.
