Vintage Steampunk Fairy

Hi everyone. I hope you are having a great week. Today I have a card to share with you using one of Teresa Sherman's images called "Steampunk Fairy".  You can find her on Sheet #1, Plate #168 or you can purchase her as a single stamp.

I absolutely love this image and believe it or not this is the first time I have even inked her up.  I don't know why it has taken me so long to ink her up.
I used some Recollections paper from Micheal's called "Love Letters" and the main paper is all printed on Kraft paper.  I also add a small piece of Basic Grey paper with the postage images on it.
The let me Count the way paper piece is from the same Recollections paper pack.

Here is a list of supplies I used for my Steampunk Fairy card.

Paper: Recollections "Love Letters", Basic Grey, Bronze CS and Dark Brown CS
Image was stamped on Mohawk 100lb bright white Cover CS
Ink: Memento Black Tuxedo
Distressing inks: Walnut Stain and Wild Honey
Spellbinder Dies
Wild Orchid Crafts roses
Bronze floral decoration pieces
K&Company Metal key
Foam Tape for dimension under image
Background: E34,E31,E30,YR24,YR14,YR31 and YR20
I also used some coloring pencils in her hair.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a wonderful day.
