Beautiful Fairy Birthday Card (A Day for Daisies image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

Happy Australia Day! 

How sweet is this image from A Day for Daisies, I have been meaning to create with her for a long time as I printed her up ages ago but used it as my first attempt at watercolours and lets just say it didn't go well hehe. So I tried again with my trusted copics and now I think she looks very sweet in these colours. 

Here's a little tutorial on how I covered the 2 wooden hearts with the background papers - if you haven't tried this it is very easy - glue the paper to the wood item and once the glue has dried completely, sandpaper (I used a nail file so I could get into the top of the hearts easily) all the way around and it looks like it was made this way.

Flourish with a Bling have a 50% off sale all throughout January, everything is half off!! I hope you'll check out our website as we have our own unique products and we post worldwide. Please email if you would like rough estimates of shipping, if we can send it as a large letter we will or perhaps get your friends to all buy too and share the postage!

  5. Sweet card, Lucy! Happy Australia Day to you! I heard about the holiday on the radio this morning and thought of you! Please tell me - what do you use for watercolouring? I love the look - I was considering a new set but I will probably stick with my Tombow watercolour markers because the Japanese set I was looking at was so expensive. Would love to know what you use. Thank you for the tutorial on the paper-covered hearts - it looks awesome! I love it when you share little tips like this!
