Fairy Dance


This is another design inspired by Sheena Douglass and using her stamps.  I wanted a dark coloured shaped base card so I drew around a shaped white card and cut it out.  A large decorative corner image is stamped on to the base card in clear ink, then heat embossed with holographic powder.  The edges of the card are tinted with  a white Brilliance ink.  The background is a panel of white card that is painted with two or three complimentary colours of H2O paints that are blended together.  The paints have a lovely pearlescent sheen to them.  When dry the large corner image is stamped on to opposite corners, as on the base card, using clear ink and heated with two colours of embossing powder, one on each image.  Glitter is added to the images.  Some small fairy silhouette images are stamped on to the panel using second generation ink.  Two larger silhouette fairy images are stamped and heat embossed on to another piece of card, then cut out.  The background panel is matted and layered then attached to the base card.  The two focal images are attached using dimentional glue.  A tag is punched out of mirror card, a greeting added and some fibres threaded through the top.  It is then attached with dimentional glue.
