Two tiny fairies

Boy, did I set myself a challenge with this card. I decided to paper piece my brand new Sweet November fairy images for the challenge at the ATS blog. The images are part of the Little Bit of Magic stamp set consisting of nine totally cute but tiny fairies, so it took quite some fiddling to cut the paper-pieced dresses and attach them onto the coloured images. But hey, don't they look cute?

And here's a close-up of the little beauties:

I coloured the images with Spectrum Noirs. The sentiment comes from the matching Little Bit of Magic sentiment set, stamped in Memento Rich Cocao and then die cut with a Spellbinders Nestability. The layout is based on that of a card I saw in the June issue of Crafts Beautiful.

Other materials used:
Backing papers - Wild Rose Studio
Paper-pieced dresses - Vintage paper pad from the Dutch Action shop
Ribbon - from my stash
Distress ink - Tattered Rose by Ranger's
