Fairy Princess Manga style

I had a bit of fun altering one of the new Manga style stamps from Sugar Nellie this week, a card i made to send to Laura which i can share now as she recieved it today.
I gave her a crown and wings making her a fairy princess and i quite liked the finished result so my other stamps had better watch out, lol..i could be doing this again !



All the papers are October Afternoon from The Craft Emporium, i coloured the image with copics and added the crown and wings before i then gave it all a coat of Claudine Helmuths gel medium, a matte finish glue/glaze, great for collage pieces as it helps to smooth out the surface...again from The Craft Emporium.I added a border created with a fiskars punch and added some pink gingham ribbon...



Before i go here's a great book i've been reading this week, it has tons of really useful hints and tips on saving money, something i think alot of us are trying to do as things are at the moment. It covers just about everything,food, clothes, community, having fun, beauty...olive oil is a fab moisturiser/cleanser, holidays, home and money, it's author India Knight writes it in an entertaining way...even a section on Crafts...gives you lots of helpful websites to look up and a book that you can dip in and out of...highly recommend it :)
