I was about to say I think this little sweetie is my favourite of the new Lili of the Valley little fairies, but they are all my favourite as I'm using them.
This little sweetie is Dandelion Clock and she is coloured with Copics and the edges stamped with a small Crealies stamp that looks very much like a dandelion seed. The paper is an old, old digi download, apart from the dark green backing cardstock. Ive cut the border with a Carlacraft punch called Macaron, the leaves with a Crealies die and I made the flowers as I wanted a fluffy dandelion head type of finish (albeit a blue dandelion) When I look at them now they look just like scabious flowers I had in my garden. I cut them out of white mulberry paper with the EK Success retro flower punch, fastened them together with a small brad then spritzed them with a mixture of water, a few drops of Faded Jeans distress ink and a little perfect pearls.
A sort of personalized version of glimmer mist. At this point I scrunched them up and left them to dry. I have in the past tried to dry them with a heat gun but ended up scorching them so I prefer to let them dry naturally. Once dry I unfurled the leaves and added some seed pearls to the centres with silicone. The sentiment is Paula Pascual and the ribbon charms a strip pears are from my stash.
A close of the flowers, and I forgot to say I sprinkled them with glitter whilst still wet, not that it shows in the photograph.
I managed to find a few challenges into which this card fit.
Sketch and Stash - new - image, charm, old - papers & punch
Cute Card Thursday which is a recipe comnination of 1, 2, 3 (1 image, 2 papers & 3 flowers) but I have so much more I might be disqualified from this one!!)

City Crafter - hand made flowers
My Time to Craft - Spots and dots (the dp is spotty, though it doesn't show very well, other than this it will have to be the row of dotted pearls)

Well it's been freezing cold here today (back to minus temperatures) so I'm going to have a hot bath now and get my snugglies on.
