Week 574 – Magical Worlds

Initially when I first thought about this card I was going to do a sponged background and then stamp most of it as silhouettes, but then I decided that stamping in coloured inks would make it even more whimsical so that is what I did. Stamps used were from GKD set called Enchanted Forest, Inks are Distress Oxides and the die cut fairy is an unbranded die I’ve had for a while. After stamping the frame, I then did the grass. The fairy was cut using a Signature Collection foiled florals pad and I chose this particular piece because I like the stripes and the silver edging and thought if I placed the die well I could get silver wings. The fact that she looks as if she is wearing a dress happened purely by accident and somehow it makes her look really special. The only detail in this die is the wings and I don’t have a stamp for it so using a fancy paper is a good solution. The black and gold grass is something I had cut a long time ago and didn’t use but it worked well for here. I added a bit more gold to the stars and went over all the inked sections with distress glaze so there is a faint shine to the inks. Personally I love how this turned out and I’ll add a sentiment at a later time.

  2. So glad you like it Judy. I thought doing it all in weird colours was right for a fairy card and a bit different to the norm too.


  3. Oh what a sweet creation. You’re right, stamping with colored inks does make it more whimsical. Love the shiny dress on the main fairy.

  4. Thanks, after cutting the main fairy I was pretty pleased with myself as totally by accident I had positioned it perfectly for the pattern on the paper. I had fun making this one.
