More fairies

As we head towards Florence another fairy card using my new Lavinia stamps - link in my last post. It's years since we went to Florence so really looking forward to it and soaking up the history and atmosphere that drew so many artists over the years and a trip of course to the Piazza della Signoria with its copy of Michelangelo's David.

The background for this card is one my my nice messy techniques using Tim Holts inks onto a glossy cardstock, adding some Krylon gold. The image is stamped with versafine black and embossed with detail clear. The card itself has been stamped with the tiny toadstools and a small fairy stamp embossed with detail gold. The embelli in the corner some gold swirls and three leaves stamped onto shrink plastic which I coloured before cutting out and shrinking.
