Fairy Celebration

As part of the challenge I set myself to use stamp sets that I would not normally buy, I put Fairy Celebration on a recent order. It is not that I don’t like some of the stamp sets, I really do, it is just that they are not my “style.”

Fairy Celebration is a lovely set I can see being perfect if you need something for a little girl’s party invitations or birthday cards, but I decided that I would do something a little more adult.

My card blank was cut to size from Basic Black and the matt from the thicker Whisper White. Then I used my circles framelits to cut a moon from a scrap of Whisper White which I sponged carefully with Smoky Slate, overlaid with Crumb Cake, making sure to sponge a slightly heavier ink layer on part of one edge.

The white matt was then sponged in a circular motion first with Tempting Turquoise and then Night of Navy. When doing this it is better to just use a little ink and then build up until you get the look you want.

I needed some sort of plant or tree for the fairy to be taking off from so I looked through my stamp sets and finally picked one of the stamps from Wild About Flowers which I stamped in Night of Navy on the bottom edge of the card.

It was then simply a case of stamping the fairy image in Basic Black and using a Basic Black marker to colour her in, putting just a tiny bit of glimmer from the Wink of Stella clear pen, and placing the moon where I thought it should go.

It is a very simple card to make and I think it is very effective.
