Sprinkled with Fairydust from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, oh dear back to work for me today so I'm not a happy bunny.  today's card features the beautiful Spring Fairy stamps from Chocolate Baroque  and the Fairyland Words which complement them perfectly.


I began by brayering the scene by masking the moon and using torn paper masks and Memento Inks in Pear Tart and Elderberry. I love memento inks for brayer work, the colours are lovely (they are on offer at the minute too, you can find them here). I wanted to create a distressed look to the scene so I splashed on some water and blotted it off with kitchen roll and then set to with a Crafters Workshop Harlequin stencil and Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Next I stamped the images, again with Memento Tuxedo Black and added some colour with Graph'It Markers. For a little sparkle, I stamped the images again on acetate and embossed with black EP and glittered the back. Once the wings were dry I added them with a little silicone glue for dimension.

The sentiment was stamped on white card using Memento Elderberry ink. I then brushed Matte medium over the image, sprinkled with glitter and popped the acrylic tag on the medium while it was still wet. Once it was dry I trimmed the excess card and added a little green ribbon.


To finish off I've matted on white, lilac and then black card and added some green silk ribbon and a lilac paper rose.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments: anything goes
Crafting for all seasons: no designer papers
One Sweet Challenge: we all scream for green

Well, I'd better go and catch the bus to work now so thanks for visiting today, hope to see you again soon.

  4. I love the way you coloured the little bird & it looks as if he is just perched there watching the fairies playing with the butterflies. Interesting effect with the Harlequin stencilling & I love the matting which has really framed it beautifully. The Fairy Dust label is a lovely touch too.
