Week 23 Fairy Fun Fridays Prairie Fairy Challenge: glitter and glitz!

This week the fairy princesses got to indulge our sparkly side and create some truly glittery and glitz creations! We hope you can join us this week at Fairy Fun Fridays! I used the Fairy with Daisy image available here!
*original dp
* bazzil card stock base
* gp white layer
*tissue paper flower and misc brad/bling
*misc ribbon
*Colored with copics and spica pens

For my card I followed the tutorial over at PCP right here and then modified it a bit to use what I had on hand.

The picture above shows it after I poured the modge podge over it and smooshed it with foam brush.

The tissue paper flower I made by sponging some distress ink on tissue paper, folding into many layers, and cut with Blossoms nestie and layered. Used some of the modpodge I had used on my paper as the brush had glitter on it and dabbed it around the flower.
