Fairy Dust

Hi Crafters,

Just popping in for a quick share with you of one of a series of cards I've been making.
Using some Lavinia, Inkylicious and Sheena Douglas stamps, which work together beautifully, I have been creating a number of fairy themed cards.

Lavinia Stamps - Fairies, Toadstools and Seed Heads
Sheena Douglas Stamps - Grass and flowers
Magazine Freebie - Sentiment
Distress Inks
Perfect Pearls Spray

These are so much fun to make and I have so many different coloured backgrounds in the making too. The combinations of Distress Inks are never ending.
After I stamped the seed heads I dabbed them with water and took off some of the colour to make them paler and more defined against the background.
Also it was a pleasant change from the plethora of Christmas cards I have made of late :o)

Such pretty inking. The silhouette images help to make the card so balanced that you can enjoy all of it equally. Lovely. Hugs!

I'm loving the background you have created and those tiny pixies look
great amongst the seed heads. Those colours really go well together. Thankyou for fluttering by my challenge.
