A Fairy, by any other name....

.... still looks just as naff!

I have created this using the wonderful fairy stamp I won in the pass the parcel competition at Lesley and Linda's birthday party last week. It looks simple I know, to the casual glance, but those of you who are keen crafters will see the great amount of work I put into it!

The background is taken from a Butcher's Block pad. The original paper was larger than the size I wanted, so I actually had to cut it down to size myself. I stamped the fairy in the centre of the page and sprinkled gold embossing powder. I then heated it with a heat gun. This melted the powder and made it go all shiny. Finally, I cut the peel off borders to size so that they would exactly fit, then stuck them onto the page, taking care to see that they were evenly spaced.

Hang on, what's that? April the what? That'll teach me to look at my calendar more frequently, I'm 6 days late! :o)
