Silhouette Fairy

Hello there my crafty friends and passers by.

Before I start, I'd like to give a big welcome to my new follower, Di Howard.  It's really nice of you to join me, thank you :) 

I'm sat here today full of cold as I write this post today, so not much getting done here other than drinking Lemsip and a little card making, which is definitely making me feel better :)

If you're reading this Mac, I did dust my fairy stamps off and here's what I've made with one of them:


I started by using Ink Dusters to colour my white card.  I used some Adiroondack Butterscotch in the center and used my new Distress inks,  Abandoned Coral and Wilted Violet around the edges.  I then stamped the fairy with Versafine Black Onyx and stamped the flowers and hanging vines around her. I sponged around the edges with the Violet and then with Memento Tuxedo Black to frame the image.  I stamped two extra pairs of wings with snippets of card and then embossed them with a Transparent Crystal emsossing powder to give them a bit of sparkle. I shaped them with a bone folder to give the wings dimension.
The fairy looks jet black in reality but unfortunately, the flash on the camera has bleached her out a little.  I finished the card by creating an outer frame by sponging with the Coral and Violet and then stamping around the edge with a Lavinia flower.

The stamps that I've used are by: Lindsay Mason, Inkylicious and Lavinia.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

Always love to see a fairy or two Sandra, this one is very pleasing on the eye and they way you have graduated the inking to draw the eye.

A great entry for both the challenges, many thanks for joining in at Penny Black and More and FlonzCraft Vintage Stamping Challenge.

Hope you feel better soon.

Yes I am here...always so pleased when your blog post drops into my list for me to open x Loving that fairy stamp and what you've done on her wings, gorgeous. I always find it hard to get a deep black and maybe one day will find some pennies for a Misti...that might help me? You don't need one as your stamping is fabulous x Love the double framing and the gorgeous colours you've used. Such a pretty and delicate card...off now to use my fairy stamps xxx

Won't stay to long Sandra as I am just getting over a cold and I don't want to catch it again lol.

Not into fairies myself but I can appreciate how gorgeous this card is and the work that went into it. Her wings are particularly gorgeous.
