Autumn Fairy at Twilight

Good morning my lovelies, have you seen the new Autumn fairy stamps from Chocolate Baroque? OMG they are absolutely gorgeous!  Here is my first sample using these wonderful new stamps. this large fairy from October

I began by punching a moon from some masking tissue with a circle punch and popping it on my card. I used torn copier paper to mask the hills in the background (but if you subscribe to Glenda's Mojo Monday newsletter you'd be able to  use the fab free template for this technique, if you don't receive the email, click here to find out how you can receive it). I used an old shaving brush to add my ink to this project, I used various shades of blue and purple distress inks and build the colour up gradually. I find that lightly brushing with a shaving brush gives a slightly misty, diffused effect. I added the stamping with black archival ink using stamps from the Autumn Fairies collection. To finish off I added some glitter to the fairy's wings for a little sparkle.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craft a Scene: dusk to dawn
Left of Centre: No designer papers
My Craft Spot: Favourite technique (making a scene lol)

Its a bit of a dull day here today but that naughty puppy Barney has been digging the lawn up so I'm off to do some repairs lol, i don't know why I bother as he'll only dig them up again as soon as I turn my back. Good job I love him. Have a good day and thanks for popping by ,
