Hello all! I have a fairy card today - I love fairies and haven't made anything with them for a while so decided it was time!
I used one of my absolute favourite techniques for the background. I applied Shaded Lilac, Dusty Concord, Peacock Feathers and Mermaid Lagoon Distess Inks lightly to an acrylic block. Spritzed with a little bit of water then pressed the block onto a piece of watercolour card, gently rocked it a bit, then removed block and dried with a heat gun. The gorgeous fairy stamp, which was free with a magazine, was stamped in black Versafine using my Misti as it needed repeated stamping to get a perfect impression as its watercolour card which is textured. The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley and I chose it because it had a similar swirl to the main image. The turquoise mat is a piece of fabulous glitter paper then I popped it onto base card and added some star sequins for even more sparkle!
Here is another card I made which is virtually the same. Its the same colours but I added more water so it gives a rougher edge where the ink bled more and the colours were used the other way up. Also the main panel is smaller so the glitter mat is a little wider.
I would like to enter the following challenges:
