Fairy and Flowers

I haven't had this lovely Lili of the Valley stamp out for a while so I decided it was time to dust her off and ink her up.  She's been coloured with a mixture of Promarkers and Flexmarkers, highlighted with a sprinkling of Glamour Dust, with a frame of Cotton Candy Stickles.
The papers are all from a bumper pack of paper I split with friends, and are lovely, pastel colours.
I used a Martha Stewart punch around the page set to add interest to one of the mats and made a tag with a punch and die cut greeting, threaded onto pink and white baker's twine.
The flowers were made with Xcut punches, the larger ones being shaped with an embossing tool and the leaves were made with a Woodware punch.
