A Fair-ly Fae Warning

Today I was busy packing our travel trunks for our trip to the Peeled Paint Port. Alone in my sleeping chambers, I crammed various cloaks and furs into the trunk, never sure exactly what to bring on a long journey.  I was deciding between my Boots of Speed and Sandals of Sneaking when I heard some soft whistling. Curious, I put down the footwear and listened for the sound again. It was very quiet, but seemed to be coming from a plant in the corner of the room. I peered closer and saw a tiny fairy sitting on a branch, her back to me. “Although your journey may be for pleasure, beware the boar who bears the feather,” she softly sang, whistling the same unfamiliar tune again.

This card was created for the Just Some Lines reminder about our Fairies Challenge going on right now. You can use the freebie provided or your own Just Some Lines fairies and enter here!

I started by printing off the “Fairy Keisha Watching n Waiting” Just Some Lines image and watercolouring her using Distress Markers and my fabled Hydra Brush of +38 wetness. I used the Lawn Fawn “Say Cheese” set to stamp the polaroid and put my little fairy inside the picture. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. Some clear buttons and pink crinkley ribbon finished off the front. 

On the inside I used the same paper as the front and stamped the sentiment using the Lawn Fawn “You’ve Got Mail Set”. This could be used as a sympathy card or even a birthday card, or miss you card. Although versatile, it now leaves the difficult task as to where to file it in my card storage box.

The envelope I stamped with the Inkadinkado “Flower Flourishes” set.

This fairy will flutter into the following challenges:
Incy Wincy Designs: Things That Begin With “F” (fairy)
Paper Playtime Challenge #5: Anything Goes
Crafts and Me Challenge #124: Ribbons and Lace
Divas By Design: Put On Some Pink
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #260: Anything Goes
CTV Stamps DT Challenge #26: It’s So You (pink is my favourite colour)
Spark Your Creativity Now! Challenge #7: Anything Goes

At hearing the fae’s words, my heart jumped in my chest. One of the stops we had planned while visiting the Peeled Paint Port was to see Chevron - an old mage who breeds boars as familiars for adventurers. The fairy turned her head slightly in my direction without moving her body. “Heed my words, Master of Paper Creation, or you will find yourself in a terrible situation.” And without another word, the little fae creature disappeared leaving only a tiny shower of glitter behind.
