Have a magical day with Chocolate Baroque

Good morning my lovelies, the weekend is here at last! Todays card features  the beautiful fairy from the July Fairy set and one of the stamps from Fantasy Castles, both from Chocolate Baroque. I really enjoyed messing around with paint and ink to make this project

I began by stamping the fairy and castle with Black Archival ink on to watercolour card I masked them using masking tissue. Next I roughly 'splodged' on some white and some pearl acrylic paint to create the clouds. Once the acrylic paint was dry I started adding colour to the sky with lots of water and Twinkling H20 paints Once I removed the masks I had a bit of a panic as some of the blue had seeped under the mask but I found that using diluted bleach removed the colour but not the stamped image phew!! . The blue paint had also discoloured the clouds so I added some more paint and left it to dry. Next I painted the castle and then decoupaged the fairy (also painted with Twinkling H20s).

I added a little gem to the fairy's wand and stamped the sentiment (from Fairyland Words) and embossed with gold embossing powder. 
I added some chipped sapphire distress ink around the edges and matted the scene on white and then blue card to finish off.
