Hello crafty friends!
I’ve made a sweet fairy card as I wanted to use some bright colours before I get started on Christmas cards.
I ink blended the background with Ranger inks to add some colour. The stamps are lawn fawn and I think they are so sweet.
I then used my spectrum noir markers to colour them in. I was going to turn this into a birthday card but decided on a thank you card.
I also wanted to share some of my colouring with you. If your not on Instagram there’s a daily colouring challenge going on all through November just for fun!
I find colouring relaxing plus it’s always handy to have some pre coloured stamps ready to go!
Thanks for stopping by!
I am up on the papermilldirect blog today.
I have this sweet fairy card today and I have used my watercolour paint to make this background.
You will also need:
- Watercolour paints and a brush
- Heat gun
Uniquely creative garden fairies stamp set
- Versamark ink pad
- White embossing powder (WOW)
- Black embossing powder (WOW)
- Nuvo Drops
To make my card base I trimmed down a piece of Blu Navy Nettuno Linen Effect Card 280gsm to 4 1/8 and scored at 5 7/8. I then trimmed down a piece of White Card Hopsack 255gsm for my card front. Once this is done I used my watercolour paints to make the night time sky. I added the blues, pinks and yellows first before adding the black paint. You will then need to use your heat gun to dry this or you can leave it for a few hours to dry.
I then stamped the fairy images with Versamark ink and used black embossing powder to heat set this. I used a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm and very gently watercoloured the images in. If you use embossing powder your paint should not run.
I then trimmed down a piece of Black Plain Card 250gsm and heat embossed the sentiment using some white embossing powder and my heat gun. I adhered this to my card front using some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm. I then adhered the whole panel and my images to my card base using some more Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.
To finish off the card I used some Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml and added some sequins. I then added some white nuvo drops to the card to make them look like stars in the sky.
I had so much fun experimenting with watercolour paints onto different card stock. I always use a small amount of water when using watercolour paints so that the card doesn’t get too saturated and rip.
I hope your having a nice start to the weekend.
I’ve got a very cute fairy card on the blog today and it’s super long.
I used Uniquely creative December stamp and colour kit garden fairies photopolymer stamp set for this one and it’s perfect for anyone who loves a fairy.
I made the background with pigment inks and I heat embossed the wooden thanks with gold wow embossing gold embossing powder.
