1) Stamp "Hold on to your dreams" on back side (sticker side) of Metal foil using "Noir Black" ink - trace hand and moon only with embossing tool (see video - Metal embossing). Apply Alcohol Ink to foil side (see video - Alcohol Ink). Cut hand out - set aside

2) Stamp Merry Fairy onto cream card stock using "the Embosser" and Filigree "White" embossing powder. Stamp Merry Fairy again onto transparency using Palette "noir black" ink - remember to heat set - use low setting on your embossing gun. On back of transparence stamped image color wings only using Silk "Fuchsia" - then place a small amount of Silk "fuchsia on to your teflon sheet and add a small amount of water to lighten the color. Color the skirt of "Merry Fairy". cut out wings and shirt. Adhere onto Full Merry Fairy. What a great idea with the Silk ink - add water and get the shade you want. More for your money!

6) cut Purple Cardstock into 4" x 8" - in right hand corner, stamp "hand" using Palette "Violet Varnish". Ink all edge in "Violet Varnish"
7) Cut darker Purple cardstock into 8 1/2" x 9" - Score at 4 1/2" to make a card that is 8 1/2" x 4 1/2". Ink all edge in "Violet Varnish"
