Fairy Silhouette

Hi there

Tonight, I'd like to share a card I've just made for the new challenge at CASology where the cue word is 'Magic'.  

I have very little in my craft stash that would fit this challenge but one stamp set came to mind so this is what I managed to create with it...



For my first attempt at this card I stamped the image last but it didn't stamp clearly enough so that card ended up in the bin and I started again.  This time I stamped the fairy image first and let this dry completely before masking off a section of the card with post-it notes.  I also die cut a post-it note using a circle die to create the moon.  I then gently built up the background with pink, purple and indigo chalks.  I then removed the circle die and gently blended over the moon with pink chalk to make it softer and used some white chalk to soften it more and create some gentle clouds.  I finished the card by adding the sentiment.  I was originally going to add a further sentiment below which said 'believe...' but the stamp was damaged so this became the finished card.  I think I would have preferred to have the sentiment stamped at the bottom but I didn't want to create the whole project again! 

Materials used:
  • Stamps: Lindsay Mason Designs - Magic Happens
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Die: Xcut - Nested Circles
  • Decorating Chalks

That's all for now folks.  Tomorrow I'll be sharing my card for the new challenge at Addicted to Stamps and More so would love it if you'd pop back.

Take care
