Sharing a birthday card that I made using the fairy for this month’s challenge over at Faery Ink using Fairy2 image.
Here is a close up:
I printed the image and coloured it in using my Spectrum Noir markers. Details of colouring image are below.
Then I fussy cut out the image.
I wanted her to look like she was floating in water and mystical, so I used watercolour paper and Ken Oliver Crafts Color Burst Turquoise and Ultramarine Blue. As the paper was drying I sprinkled some Sea salt onto the paper and just love the effect that it created. I also used my hot gun to dry the paper a little faster.
Positioned circle die from Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the portion of the background that I wanted.
Next I cut out the dark blue background using AC Specialty Paper 5 x 7 foil with die cut from My Creative Time – Bunch of Fun Circle Dies.
Used Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles to cut out the larger circle and then embossed the circle with We R Memory Keepers Polka Dot Embossing Folder. Inked around the edges with Stampin Up! Tempting Turquoise Ink.
Lastly, I used the new free embossing folder that came with Simply Cards and Papercraft Magazine – Issue 148. I used DCWV Cardstock Neutrals paper and then once the image was embossed I used very light sandpaper to go over the image and bring out the white core to enhance the image.
I layered all of the above using 3M VHB tape.
Lastly, I stamped “Happy Birthday” from Jennifer Ellory – Bake a Cake Clear Stamps with VersaMark ink and Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail
