The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Fireworks (loosely)

This week's Craft Barn challenge subject is Fireworks. However Jane has allowed us some slack to take the subject wider, so our project can be something to do with fire, dark sky, moon, stars etc.

I took the moon as my starting point to make a birthday card. I stamped the fairy before placing a moon mask partially over her and then dusted Distress Inks around the mask using darker shades of blues as I moved out to the card edges. Then the stamped  leaves and plants were added to frame the figure and moon. Every fairy has to have some glitter in their life so I finished off by adding some to her wings.
