Fairy Doodles

This was the first stamp I ever coloured with Promarkers.......really badly!  I decided to dig it out and play with it again as I haven't used it in ages, fortunately my colouring has improved a bit.
 The stamp is a Fairy Doodles one from Buzzcraft, I think these Christmas fairies are so cute and they're fun to colour too.  After colouring I got busy with the glitter, using red, gold, blue and green on the streamers, gold on the cracker bang and Glamour Dust on their wings, well what's Christmas without a bit of sparkle!  The sentiment was done with a stamp from a Papermania set.
The papers are Dovecraft, sale bargains after Christmas, to which I've added kraft and inked the edges with Fired Brick Distress Ink.
The stars were cut with Xcut dies and given a touch of green glitter for even more sparkle and I finished off with some beige ribbon, Card Candi and gold gems.  I've managed to keep this one fairly flat so I'm hoping it can be posted as a standard letter instead of large, I end up paying a fortune in postage but struggle to make cards thin enough to pass through the dreaded slot!
