So lets get right down to it! Here are the two cards. I have mixed things up a bit with using stamps from my stash. I have used a Papermania Fairy along with a Rubber mounted Christmas Cheer Stamp and the little Robin is from Clarity Stamp for the first card and I used two freebies from a craft mag along with a lovely Frame stamp from Clarity Stamp for the second card.
Theuva Card, then stamped her onto a Post-it Note to make a mask which I covered her with. I placed my own Circle Stencil onto the Card and Stamped the Bauble Garland (which has the words too) in Adirondack Meadow. I coloured the baubles with a Red Poppy ProMarker and a Gold Gel Pen.
I used a Clarity Stencil Brush and the Meadow ink to dust around the circle and then removed the Stencil.
I began to colour the red fairy using Red Poppy, Blush, Caramel, Fern Green ProMarkers and a little bit of Gold Gel Pen. Once I was happy with her shading I stamped the Robin into place and coloured him in too with the ProMarkers.
I ran my Gold Gel Pen around the circle (very slowly and carefully...didn't need it to go wrong at this stage). I then layered and matted the card using double sided tape, Perfect Layers Ruler, Craft Knife.
(I coloured the red backing paper with the Poppy ProMarker.)
Frame with the Detail Gold too.
I made a mask for my fairy, put a post-it along one edge of the frame and then stamped in the Christmas tree. I used a make-up sponge to put in a little bit of shading within the tree and I highlighted bits of it with my gold Gel Pen.
I used Promarkers -Lemon, Blush, Cardinal Red and Marsh Green along with my Gold Gel Pen and a White Pilot pen (for the dots on the Parcel)
I used Cardinal Red, Marsh Green again with my Gold Gel Pen to colour in the Frame. I put in a bit of shading for the background and gave a bit of a shadow using a Cool Grey 1 Promarker. I then layered the image onto Green Dotty paper from my stash and mounted this onto a Blank Card. I decided to finish it off by adding a little bit more sparkle by using clear gold edged Peel Offs.
So that's it for the Fairies, fun to do but now I have to get on with making my own Christmas Cards...way behind but will post some soon. (have one to post in the morning)
Take care all
