A little while ago I was lucky enough to win one of the new Fairy Belles ‘n Whistles stamps as blog candy. I was so excited. I love Fairies! A few days ago a friend of mine came over just to color and I finally got my new stamp dirty.
I stamped the image on Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. It was cut out with a Circle Nestabilities die and the Out of the Box Technique and colored the image with Copic Markers (Mushroom: E30, E31, E33, E35, E37 Dress: RV000, RV00, RV10 Wings: BG0000, BG10, BG11 Flower: Y13, Y15, Y17, E97, E99, E29 Leaves and grass: YG01, YG03, YG17 Skin: E000, E01).
The fairy was covered with a mask cut out of Eclipse Tape, the Circle die was added again and a few cloud dies cut with the Cloud Die-namics die were added. The sky was airbrushed with Copic Marker B01. The circle was adhered to a piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Beaded Circle Nestabilities die.
A 5″ strip of white cardstock was cut and embossed with one of the Parisian Accent dies. The strip was adhered to a 1 3/4″ x 5″ strip of MME Lime Twist Fly A Kite patterned paper. The strips were adhered to a 4 3/4″ x 5″ piece of the same paper pack. White Organdy Ribbon was tied around the vertical strips.
The layers were first adhered to a 3/16″ bigger piece of Canyon Brown cardstock, then to the card base, a 5 1/4″ x 11″ piece of yellow cardstock (SU, new color) folded in half. The image layer was adhered to the card with dimensionals.
Another die from the Parisian Accent pack was used to cut and embossed a small corner embellishment. It was adhered to the top right of the card. The sentiment is from Verve’s Kind Word Stamp set. It was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the Fancy Tag dies and colored with Copic Marker B000o.
The sentiment panel was adhered to the lower right of the image. Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones were adhered to the Beaded circle, the sentiment panel and the corner decoration.
To add some sparkle to the card, Stardust Stickles was added to the sentiment oval as well as the Fairy Wings. Yellow Stickles was added to the yellow flowers on the dress as well as to the flower the fairy is holding. Silver Kaisercraft Rhinestones finish off the card.
This month Inspiration Emporium Challenge is to use Stickles or Sparkly Fluff on your project. You have until the end of the month to enter the challenge for an opportunity to win a $50 shopping spree at IE.
Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
P.S.: I am not sure how often I will post this June. The reality of prepping for the move is setting in. I have to prep for my June tutorial, June class, get the house ready for the mover and prep for CHA. It feels a bit overwhelming all over sudden. I wish I had a time machine and could fast forward to when we are settled in Oklahoma already.
