I started out with the intention of making a background with the Be Creative alcohol markers and then stencilling over it. However, the project had ideas of its own!
Here's the background. First I coloured the whole of it with one of the markers, using the chisel end of the marker, then dabbed various colours on to felt pads and stippled over it, mainly around the sides.
I left it to dry, and when I came back to it, it made me think of a secret glad in an enchanted forest. The vertical streaks were trees, and the stippled parts vegetation.So I had to turn it into a fairy card instead!
The gorgeous sentiment is by Visible Image, all other stamps by Inkylicious. I sponged around the edges with Memento ink (being water based it won't smudge the alcohol ink), with extra at the bottom to ground the fairy, toadstool and flowers, and added a few blades of grass with a Micron pen. The sentiment seemed to go with it all perfectly. Liberal application of Be Creative glitter glue provided the necessary sparkle!
Now what was it I was supposed to be doing.......?
And thanks for taking the time to visit. I hope you find something here to enjoy, maybe be inspired by and (occasionally) even be amused by! I've been crafting in one way or another for about as long as I can remember, and cardmaking for well over 25 years. I'm privileged to live in rural SW Scotland, where, as a nature lover, I have only to look out of the window for fresh inspiration.
I love getting comments, and each one is read and much appreciated. Hope to see you again soon!
