Cardz 4 Galz: Fantasy

This is my Design Team card for the current challenge at Cardz 4 Galz, which is fairytale/fantasy.

I created this card using some fairy house stamps I have by Lavinia Stamps.  I created the background to the main picture with distress inks and various bits of masking (the houses, the sun and hills).  I then spritzed it with some mica sprays to add some sparkle (although this doesn't show up well on the photo), and coloured the houses using pearly watercolours.  I also aded some white highlighting and glitter.  For the background I used patterned paper and heat embossed the corners with gold embossing powder.  To embellish I added paper flowers with button centres and die cut dragonflies.  The sentiment 'don't forget to fly' is from the Tim Holtz Ideology "small Talk" pad.
