Have a Fairy Nice Day!

Hello!  This is Sukie and today I'm sharing a card created with the new Magical Garden dies.  The fairies and fairy gardens in this release are absolutely adorable and are perfect for creating a princess themed card.
I die cut the pieces from the new Sweet Fairy and Mushroom Garden die sets.  Some chalk on the cheeks and Glossy Accents to the fairy's eyes gave her a more realistic appearance.  All of the die cuts were shaded with Oxide Inks.
I created my card by using some fun techniques to create the background.  I used 2 different Oxide Ink colors and covered each half of my card with the ink.  I didn't spend too much time on blending the 2 colors knowing the next couple of steps in my process would take card of that.
Next I added droplets of water all over the ink which lightened the colors and gave my card base a more blended appearance.
I splattered a bit of white paint on the background of my card to resemble pixie dust.  A sentiment from the Scrappy Moms (retired) Happily Ever After stamp set was heat embossed in the corner of my card.
I added the Mushroom Garden elements along the bottom edge of my card.  I anchored the fairy to have her floating above the garden.  I couldn't resist adding a bit of bling as a finishing accent.
Here are the die used on my card, available in the shop:
