Fairy on the Moon

This card uses a stencil and stamp set that was a magazine freebie some time last year. I've not used it much, partly because I'm not a big fan of fairies, partly because it's such a massive stencilled image that it practically fills the front of a large 20cm square card so there's not much interesting you can DO with it, and partly because every time I use it, I think about how uncomfortable that bottom point of the moon must be, given where it is, and start spluttering with filthy laughter. But I expect that's just me.

I used Brilliance Pearlescent Lime for the stencilling, although as usual the pearlescence is lost in the photo. It has a lovely sheen in real life. The stamping and matting are in a navy blue that is a MUCH better match in RL than it is on the photo - dark coloured card always seems to look nearly black when the camera contrasts it against bright white!
