Less is More - Week 19 - One Layer "In the Frame"

This week the challenge over at Less Is More is for the LIMettes to design a one layer card using a frame as inspiration. 

I die cut an aperture using a nestie in a scrap piece of paper and laid this over my base card.  I then sponged Tumbled Glass Distress Ink around the edges moving in towards the middle.  I then stamped the mushrooms and fairy using Versafine black ink.  These stamps are from a set by Personal Impressions Fairy Silhouette.  I cut a circle aperture for the moon and sponged Faded Jeans D/I through.  The foliage is from Chocolate Baroques Teeny Weeny Meadow set and these were again stamped using Faded Jeans D/I.  I used a Quickie Glue pen on the fairy's wings and the fairy dust and used Glamour Dust Crystal over the top.

Thanks for looking.
