Fairy Spillage

Just a quick post to go with this cutie patooty. I actually printed her paper-piecing awhile back. She was oh-so-cute on an oval - UNTIL the attack of ink spillage...OOPS. So she sat in exile. Until she is in her cut-out state. I think she is happy on her new musical notes background. It's always FUN to repair a GOOBER in some fashion. (NOT!) It's like my own personal card challenge! I had spent so much time cutting her wee-tiny clothes, wings, and flower that I HAD to come up with some way to retrieve her from the "can this be salvaged pile".

  7. Hi from Nancy in CA. Your salvage story tickled! Done this too many times! However, the silver lining is that you created a darn cute card with this fairy sweetie! Her paper piecing was just too fab to toss, and I love the circle frame! Looks to me like a perfect fix!

  10. Thanks for sharing your super creation for Suzy Bee's Bloomin' challenge 31: layer it up - hope to see you again soon, Hazel, DT x

  11. Great save! She looks lovely cut emphasizes the pretty shape of the image and makes her looks so delicate. The paper piecing is beautiful and the woodgrain gives her a natural setting. Thanks for joining our Embossing challenge at The East Wind. I hope you will play along with our next challenge, too.

  12. I have done this so many times, any way she turned out good and this is such a pretty card, and it has sparkles, it would be perfect to enter our current challenge (ending tomorrow) at Quirky Crafts. Cazzy x - on behalf of   the Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog DT. ps - we allow a little backdating!
