Hidden Fairies

I've been having a play with some of my new silhouette stamps. I treated myself to a few new sets, I've made this card using  A Little Bit Scenic stamp set from Sheena Douglass called Hidden Fairies it's great to work with, I don't usually go for fairies but these were lovely and the leafy swirl and ivy leaves are gorgeous. The background is created using Luminarte Radient Rain daubers and spray with a touch of DI's too. I stamped the swirls and leaves with a pigment black ink, this actually took on the green of the background or maybe it has a green tinge that I just hadn't noticed before or maybe is because just a old pad? nuff rambling, I liked how it stamped anyway. I stamped the wee fairy with IndigoBlu Flitter glue and used guilding flakes on her, I thought this would make her shine as I imagine fairies should. Well she's no longer hidden, she's shiny and metallic, lol.
 
I really love those ivy leaves though, they're so realistic when stamped. I stamped a few extras and cut these out to add dimension.

  2. Hi Alexandra, the leaves beautiful and so realistic especially since you decoupaged some, that really gives it lots of dimension. The little fairy is delightful in her guilding flakes and she really stands out well against the ivy. You have done a beautiful job on this card. Crafty hugs, Anne x
