Creative Card Crew

A late posting today, busy in the office and crafting having to take a back seat, inconvenient or what. But at least the sun shone for a while this afternoon, even if I did only see it through the windows.

So this weeks Creative Card Crew challenge - this was made for me - "Have a Fairy Nice Day", everyone knows I love fairies and relish the opportunity to go fantasy.......well with so many living at the end of the garden.......now don't anyone dare tell me there are non at the end of theirs and it's all a figment of my imagination......cummon now, humour me.
Here I have combined Lavinia Flower Fairy stamp with the swirls from Inkadinkado 97513.......I am still so in love with this set.......it might just be a tincy winsy bit obvious from what I have created the last week or two.

I created the background by brayering Big and Juicy Waterfall ink but just using the lighter half as I did not want the dark blue, rolling off the excess before applying to my cardstock then rotating the card and repeating the same on the other side so I got the graduation equal. I then brayered the centre with Tim Holt worn lipstick, but rolling off most of the colour before adding it to the centre of my cardstock so I got a very very subtle pink hue.

All stamping was done with versafine black and embossed with detail clear and finally some little Lavinia toadstools and art impression leaves round the edges. I highlighted the fair wings and leaves with stickles and some gems.

I cut a double frame from a dark purple and lilac cardstock and repeat stamped the top layers with the leaf from the above Inkadinako set using Hero shadow ink pool, green and blossom. The frame does actually stand away from the stamped piece, but it does not really show up on my picture. I stamped further leaves with the same ink and embossed with detail clear and decoupaged across the bottom of the frame.
