Thank you fairy much

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!

Watercolour Fairy Card

Hello friends.

  • Watercolour paints and a brush

  • White embossing powder (WOW)
  • Black embossing powder (WOW)

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.

Thanks fairy card

Hello friends.

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.

Thanks for stopping by
