Flourishes July Release Preview ~ Day 2



Dappled summer light and pretty flowers, don't you sometimes wonder what sweet little creatures might be visiting your flower garden? Today we have a precious set to show you that might just have you believing in fairies! It's called Garden Fairies.

Add a dash of whimsy with these sweet little ladies who love to flutter and fly through the garden. This set, penned by Lauren Pope, offers two main fairy images and five beautifully scripted sentiments to lift spirits and bring smiles! Set measures 4 by 6".

GardenFairiesGrahpicI love dandelions!!  So, of course I chose that image to work with today.  I stamped the fairy two times, on Cryogen White card stock, with Tuxedo Black (Memento), and once on Vellum.  I then colored each with Copics.  For the Vellum, however, I stamped the image with Stazon.  I then cut out and layered the fairy with her bodice and right arm over top the vellum wings, and then layered those over the main image so I could get the depth on the vellum wings.  I also added some glitter to her skirt, wings and dandelions, as well as the added butterflies.  The oval inked frame was achieved by leaving the card stock in the die and inking it with Tumbled Glass Ranger Distress Ink.  I inked the sentiment frame with Spun Sugar Ranger Distress Ink.

I used the A2 Bracket Borders One dies to cut the top corners too, to tie in the bottom border.

That's it for me today.

The popped-up beautiful fairy wings are stunning themselves, but everything else worked together to make a breathtaking creation. Thanks so much for the inspiration. You have a new blog follower :D
