Good Fortune Fairy Pocket Cards.....and a trio of Snarky Witches for balance.

I do believe in balance. So when I made these sweet Good Fortune Fairy Cards, though I really like them, I felt a bit nauseous. I made the Snarky Witch cards as a sort of psychic Rolaids. Now I'm happy.
 I began with Stars Playing Cards (for a complete list of the great stuff supplied by Alpha Stamps click HERE )
I gave them a coat of Gesso....
And using the back side of the cards a s a template, I cut out all of the papers I needed, front and back and glued them to the back board of the cards.
I cut out my images from the Star Fairies Collage Sheet and pumped up their color with some Copic Markers.
After the color was done, I positioned the fairies inside the front frames (which I painted with Lumiere Halo Blue Gold) and glued them in.
I then glued the front piece on to the back, let them all dry and gave them a good sanding.
I inked the edges with gold.
After all that dried, I went to town with Stickles and added lots of sparkle and detail. Fun!
A couple of close-up pictures where you can see the sanded edges and the gold inking and sparkly bits.....


And here are my Snarky Witches to give a little tartness to all the sweet. Sigh....I do love some snark!
