Clean and Simple Fairy Cards
I have gone 'clean and simple' for this one. The stencil is the smallest of two Ginkgo leaves on the fabulous Clarity stencil - I love the shape - they are supposed to be green but I did mine in shades of purple. Seedless Preserves and Shaded Lilac Distress Ink sponged through the stencil to be precise with Peeled Paint for the stem. I sprayed some Glimmer Mist through the stencil too for a touch of shimmer. The fairy and sentiment are also both Clarity and are stamped in black Versafine. I mounted the piece on shimmery card which just shows at the edges and the fairy dust is white opal Liquid Pearls sprinkled with Glamour Dust. There was a lot of ink and Glimmer Mist left on the stencil that I didn't want to waste, so I took another piece of card and pressed it on the top of the stencil - painted in a couple of lines for definition and added two fairies and the sentiment. I quite like how it turned out.
I mounted this one on darker purple card as it looked better than the shimmery card.
