Have a Fairy Happy Birthday!

Greetings! It's Tuesday, my day to share a project created for Topflight Stamps. This week my TFS teammates and I are focusing on ink! My card uses nine colors of  Elements Inks by Lavinia Stamps. I love these dye inks because they are vibrant, juicy, have great coverage, and are reactive to water/isopropyl alcohol.

Other Products Used:
Solar White Classic Crest Cardstock by Neenah Papers
Avalanche Cardstock by Bazzill Basics
White, Black, Yellow, Yellow Orange, Green Bice, Sap Green, Gras Green, May Green Chalk Pencils by General's
Blue, Red, and Yellow Stardust Glitter Pen by Sakura of America
