“Spring Has Sprung” Fairy Shrine

Hello everyone!  Spring has sprung!  ::insert Beavis laugh::  My post is full of whimsical awesomeness.
FairyShrine1-1Just look at all of that springy color!  Makes me all giddy and bubbly inside.  You know what else makes me giddy?  How easy it was to put together!  Now it’s important to tell you that I got all sorts of caught up in my mojo groove and forgot to take step out photos.  Talk about horse blinders!
FairyShrine4-1Start out with your Ornate Flourish ATC Shrine Kit.  That would be the beautiful “Bohemian Bazaar” collection from Graphic 45.  It cover the shrine inside and out, just cut from the papers and fussy cut the designs.  Adhere with your handy dandy pop dots for insta-dimension.
FairyShrine3-1Cover unsightly and unfinished edges with some fancy and purty dresden trim!
FairyShrine2-1Spice up the flourishes with a simple and BASIC TECHNIQUE!!  Heat embossing, yo!  I used a live green embossing powder for my flourishes.  As for the fairies, I don’t know about you, but I suuuuuck at painting human features so I always go with a silhouette.  I busted out some chalker ink pads and more embossing powders and went to town!
FairyShrine5-1Who doesn’t love finishing details?  I snagged one of the treasure chests and cotton spun ‘shrooms and made some magic.  Glue a bit of moss down and stuff your box!  Glitter your pedestal with some fierceness and call it done!

Cheers!
