Good morning folks, I've got another sample from the C&C shows today, this one features the fab new Pronty Masks, PanPastels and Maimeri mediums., you can find all this crafty gorgeousness here at Your Creativity Store!
I've had a couple of people ask how I created the effect behind the fairy, its the 'Caught in Crystal' technique but without all the mess that you get using floor polish! I began by adding some color to copier paper using PanPastels, I sprinkled on some glitter and some tiny stars and set it to one side while I stamped the acetate. The gorgeous fairy is from Lavinia Stamps, she's stamped on the acetate using black stazon ink, once the ink was dry I turned it over and and brushed on plenty of Maimeri Glassy Gel. I then laid the acetate over the paper and glitter etc and smoothed it down so the gel was in contact with the paper and left it to dry. you can see the effect better in this pic:
While the background was drying, I die cut a circle from a shaped card blank and then coloured the frame using PanPastels applied through a Pronty Mask. The unicorn and mushrooms are Chocolate Baroque stamps, coloured with Graph'it markers and cut out before being layered up over the aperture.
To finish off i've added some little paper flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, a bow and a little 'ticket to fairyland' sentiment, this was a free stamp from Craft Stamper a couple of years ago and I thought it was perfect with this card.
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
