Christmas Magic

The first day of the Kit and Clowder Advent Calendar on Facebook featured a free digi from All Dressed Up. This lovely little Christmas Tree Fairy is that digi. I added a velvet background as an accent.

Putting It Together

Kit and Clowder encourage the confidence and creativity of those who colour and paint cards, offering tutorials in several different mediums. Kit and Clowder are hosting an Advent Caldendar event for the days of December leading up to Christmas. Each day, in their Facebook group, Kit and Clowder highlight one of their generous sponsors who offer giveaways, contests, discount codes, and, from some, free digital stamps.

I used Distress Ink to colour the fairy and her tree using water brushes. I kept notes for the inks I used.

I painted the fairy yellow because I was reminded of a gold star on top of the tree.

I used Glossy accents on the ornaments to give them shine and Stickles Star Dust on the sprinkling of the stars around the tree and fairy to make them sparkle.

I trimmed the fairy and tree to a long thin panel and placed her on a red velvet background matted with silver metallic paper on a top fold card base.
