We have had some Christmas and Autumn themed projects recently so time for a little change, I trawled along my stamp shelf and picked out the Fairy Celebration Stamp set, which I have not used nearly enough.
The set has some lovely images just perfect for coloring so I broke out my Watercolor Pencils to make a birthday card for Grand-daughter #3; as her birthday is the day before mine it is an easy one to remember!
Card base: 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 Soft Sky Card ~ scored @ 4 1/4
Layer 1: 5 1/4 x 4 Soft Sky Card, run thru the Big Shot with the Layered Leaves Embossing Folder
Layer 2: Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper run thru the Big Shot with the second to largest scalloped oval die. I use these dies such a lot they practically live on my work bench.
Ink Colors: Memento Black and Smoky Slate
I stamped the Fairy image in Memento Black ink before using the watercolor pencils to color her in then blended my pencil marks using a Blender Pen to get a more even color. This black ink will not bleed into the card when you use the blender pen.
The greeting and ‘stars’ around the fairy were stamped in Smoky Slate to give it softness then topped with a double loop bow using the 3/8 classic weave Whisper White ribbon which is super soft and ties beautiful bows.
