Believe in Magic


I decided to go with fairies for this challenge and it took me 4 tries to get my stamping right. I messed up 2 with inky fingers and on the next one didn’t get my mask in place properly. The fourth one I liked. The stamp set is from GKD and is one I’ve used once or twice. I used Sakura Glaze pens to colour in her wings and pencils for the mushroom. Added a touch of glitter to her wings and the edge of the mushroom. For the fairy dust I used a metallic gold ink by Delicata. Originally I thought I might heat emboss, but instead went with the ink as it looks more delicate than embossing would. Keeping it CAS is always a challenge for me but even with the addition of sequin stars I’ve managed it. I die cut the panel with an unbranded stitched edge rectangle set and added it to the card front. All in all I’m happy with the result.

  1. Delightful card. You’ve placed the fairy perfectly on the mushroom. The fairy dust and stars are perfect embellishments.


    1. I started stamping late afternoon yesterday and didn’t finish it due to my errors. Couldn’t sleep last night so finished her at 12:30pm, posted it and finally went back to bed. I’m glad I got it done and that you like it.


  2. Thanks – Getting the stamping right was challenge but it worked in the end. Previous effort not wasted as I fussy cut the fairy out of the mess and my hubby wants to use it for photography.


  3. You did a great job keeping it CAS. It’s a lovely card. It’s frustrating when you mess up what you’re working on, but you finished what you started, so it’s extra special.

  4. 4 tries is a record. I just turned the CS over and tried again. I’ve messed up lots but this one really made me frustrated.
