Magic Happens at Chocolate Baroque

 Good morning folks, I've got a sunny scene to share this morning made with the new Springtime Edges stamps from Chocolate Baroque.   I've used them with one of the beautiful Spring Fairies for this card, she is from the March set

I began by stamping the fairy with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and masked her with Masking Tissue to stamp the lovely primrose edge in the background (this time I used Memento Bamboo leaves). I left the mask in place while I created the background. Using PanPastels I added some shades of green to the foreground of the scene and then took shades of Yellow to create a sunny effect behind the image. I sealed the PanPastels with hairspray and used distress inks through the Lucious Leaves Dylusions stencil. I removed the mask and coloured the fairy and the primrose edges with Graph'It Markers. To finish off I added some tiny die cut flowers and stamped the sentiment which is from Fairyland Words and embossed with gold EP.

  4. The green of those primroses is wonderful with the light shining down onto them - it looks as if the primroses are just reaching their heads up to the sun's rays. Her wings really are magical & I like the way those stencilled leaves just cascade like a curtain from above.
