HYCCT1526 Fairy Dreams
This card was created for the Splitcoaststampers’ “Hope You Can Cling To” HYCCT1526KelliJo’s “I Believe in Prayers, Love and Fairy Dust” Challenge to use an image of a spunky fairy on your card.
Again, if you have not had a chance to do so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above gallery- tremendous inspiration from all!!
Since I do not own any stamps with fairies at all, I googled and checked on Pinterest and found this free art image from Enchanted Designs Blog (not sure if she is spunky but I thought she looked hopeful :-)).
Copy the free art image to your computer and upload it to a photo editing software (I use the retired My Digital Studio (MDS)) and print it onto Whisper White cardstock.
Color the image using Stampin’ Write Markers with the AquaPainter™- Hello Honey for her hair, Wisteria Wonder for her dress, Blushing Bride along with Calypso Coral for the flowers, Pear Pizzazz for the stems and leaves, Smoky Slate for the wings and Sahara Sand for the shadows.
Use an AquaPainter™ to apply Frost White Shimmer Paint onto her wings.
Emboss a piece of Wisteria Wonder cardstock with the Big Shot™ and Sizzix® Stars Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder, trim and mount onto a piece of Pear Pizzazz cardstock, trim and mount onto the Whisper White cardstock.
Cut the image out with the Big Shot™ and MFT Rounded Stitched Rectangle Die.
Add the looped Gold Cord to the card front and mount the focal image die cut over the cord with dimensional foam.
Stamp the sentiment with Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, trim and add the banner points with the Hexagon Punch and mount to the card front with dimensional foam.
