October Elemental Inspiration.

 Hello Everyone
My goodness it the first Friday in October already and its Elemental Inspiration challenge time at Daring Cardmakers.
Here is the beautiful inspiration picture chosen by Leo our host this week.
Remember to use at least 3 elements on your creation from the image below.
For my card I went with the colours, a night sky and a fairy.
I am totally in love with this die I have used from Spellbinders called Fairy Ariana.  She is just beautiful.  She even comes with a tiny wand.
There are 3 other fairies in the collection and you can find them HERE.
To create my card I started by masking the moon off first.  I then inked around the edge of the moon with a pink ink then I used a blue and finally around the edge I used a purple ink.  I tried to blend the colours very lightly and sponged off a lot of the excess first before I applied it to my card stock.

I then used a stamp set from Indigoblu called Nature I and stamped the tree image around the edge. 

I then added my fairy which I cut from black card stock and added a few little stars around her legs to look like fairy dust.  I think I have been watching to much Tinker Bell with my daughter as that's where the idea for the stars came from.

Thanks for stopping by today and please check out the Daring Cardmakers Blog for more lovely inspiration from the Design Team.
Have a lovely day.
