Crafter's Companion Summer challenge

It's time for another fun Crafter's Companion Challenge.  I had so much fun with this one.  The challenge is to use a Crafter's Companion stamp and make a project using Summer colors or a Summer theme.  I love the colors of Summer, especially the oranges and yellows that remind me of the Sun.  I decided to do a layout this month using my Fairyopolis Collection.

I started by distressing my Fairyopolis Paper and inking them up with brown chalk.  Then I placed a purple magic mesh along the left side of the page.  After using a decorative punch along the edges, I wrapped a large see through ribbon around it and tied it into a bow.  I used glue behind the bow to make it stay in the postion I wanted it too.  Lastly I placed the word, "Believe" right on the ribbon and again used strong glue to make sure the letters would stay down and added a Decoupaged Fairy from the Fairyopolis Complete Cardmaking Kit.  I added Stickles to him to make him sparkle.

In the upper left hand corner of my page I used the rub-on saying, "Every little girl wants to be a fairy", a rub-on fairy, and butterfly.  I also added a beautiful fairy sticker.  I just love how gorgeous it is.  These were also from the Fairyopolis Card making kit.

 Just below my picture of Lara with her fairy wings, I added a stamped Fairy from the Fairyopolis Clear Stamp Set Summer, colored her with Copics, and cut her out.  I then added Stickles to her wings as well.

For the flowers, I took the flowers that came in the Fairyopolis card making kit and added Tattered Angels Glimmer Glam to them.  This made them not only sparkling, but also very stiff.  While they were drying I molded the petals so that they stood out even more.  I then added various big crystals to the centers of the flowers as well as rhinestone and fabric leaves. 

Finally I added some of the butterflies from the Card making kit around the page and I was done. 

Hope I see some of you entering in our contest.  It's going on throughout June, so you'll have plenty of time.
