#117 Cookie Fairy

Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - anything goes!!!
Sponsor & prize this week - The Paper Shelter ($20 voucher to spend in store)

The I ♥ Promarkers DT are all using images from our generous sponsor this week, The Paper Shelter and the one I am using is called, 'The Fairy of the Cookies' and she is of course, coloured with my ever-ready Promarkers. I know there must be fairies living in my biscuit tin as I fill it up and they all vanish!  I was going for a fairly clean, country kitchen look - so you will have to let me know if I have achieved it.

The image, for you Silhouette aficionados (coz I know someone will want to know), was a p&c as was the uppermost layer of the tag featuring a sentiment concocted from a few words (& stars) from Shabby Princess with the bottom line I added myself on the PC using a font I thought matched as closely as I was going to get.

The Silhouette is also responsible for cutting the cookie jar shaped card itself too, using a design I made myself especially for this Cookie Fairy.  (You probably know by now how much I like to mess about & do my own thing! LOL).  So the cut file here included the card base itself, a separate lid for the front & the horizontal layers for the lid.  The tag is the one from the Silhouette Library which came with the machine and was attached to my cookie jar using twine.

Now what does a cookie jar need? Cookies of course! So just had to add some to the inside of the jar didn't I?  All created by my good self of course, courtesy of the cutter once again and using p&c. Double choc chip, choc chip, Bourbons, Jammie Dodger-esque ones too and a very large 'iced' one (to write the 'to' & 'from'). The inside is probably a lot less dimensional than you might think. I cut the Bourbons & JDs in 2 layers, offsetting them a little to give the illusion of more dimension than there was having inked the edges with Distress Inks for a 3-d feel.

Thanks for reading my post today - with my apologies if you are now feeling a little peckish! LOL.

Loved reading about your Silhouette as i have just purchased one too, I've been drouling over digital cutters for years & have finally took the plunge. I've cut a couple of things from the libary, but I haven't yet learnt how to do my own. x
