FAIRY BRINGING FLOWERS


Good morning everyone!  I am so happy that everything worked out, and I am actually back here posting as quickly as I had hoped! However, I am not saying another word about that - just gonna count my blessings ONE day at a time. Lol.  So today I have a card I made using a really pretty fairy image from Wee Stamps called Spring Bringer.



 I love this stamp. I have actually had it quite a while and have made several cards with it. It is so pretty in any color palette you choose. The stamp is designed by Sylvia Zet and is now available as a digi. I don't THINK that was the case when I bought it. If you are interested in purchasing the digi version or any other of Sylvia's adorable digi images, click on this link HERE.

 I colored the image with my Copics, but I used Smooch inks on her wings to give them that soft, glittery look that Smooch gives. I cut the image out with Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles. The sentiment came from the FELICITY rubber stamp set, which is part of Angelica and friends Collection from Crafter's Companion. I also used a Spellbinder's die to cut out the sentiment, which I popped up with foam tape. I added some bling and some little roses from my stash.  I adhered the Radiant Rectangle with foam tape to a background I made using gesso, gelatos, and glimmer mists in various colors, along with some beaded medium. It was so much fun playing with all the different textures and colors to get the background! I hated to cover it up at all. Here is a closeup. Sorry I didn't think to take the pic before i adhered everything to it!





If you have any questions about the background, please leave your question in the comments. I will get back to you as soon as I can. If you haven't tried playing with a mixed media type page, you really should. You can get really creative making textures with all sorts of things lying around your house. It's a good way to see what colors and what type of inks, paints, mists etc. blend well together. Make notes about what you used, and then you'll have the info for future projects!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
