Hi there! Audrey here with a whimsical fairy card to share with you! As soon as I saw the new Pixie Dust set by Avery Elle, I knew I had to have it! There is something so sweet and charming about these images... something magical, even for grownups. :)
I knew I wanted to make a purple card... I don't know what it is lately, because purple isn't usually a color that I reach for often, but in the last little while, I can't seem to get enough! I started off with a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper, and I diecut it with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches die. Then I used an ink blending tool and lilac Distress ink, starting off in the center of the panel, and blending it out lighter as I neared the edges of the paper. I stamped, colored and fussy cut out the fairy and a bunch of clouds from the same stamp set. I adhered the bigger clouds flat to the panel, and popped the fairy and smaller clouds up with foam tape. Magical fairies need glittery wings, so I squeezed a little bit of Stickles on my finger, and rubbed it onto her wings. When they were dry, I bent them lightly forward to add a bit more dimension. I stamped a scattering of stars on a diagonal, and finally, stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set underneath the clouds.
That's all for me today! Be sure to check back again tomorrow for more inspiration from the design team!! :)
Thanks for stopping by!!
