Hello and welcome to my blog :) Today I'm sharing one of my fairy samples from the Chocolate Baroque tv shows. I have used stamps from the Fantasy Castles and March Fairy sets; Aztec Paints, Distress Inks, watercolour inks, glitter and a stencil from my stash.
As soon as I saw this fairy stamp she made me think of Lady Galadriel and Lorien. As you will know if you've visited my blog before I am a HUGE Tolkein and Middle Earth fan! I have already created a couple of pieces of artwork with a Middle Earth theme and this one will make a lovely addition. So this card is my own version of Galadriel walking through Lorien. I started by stamping a castle and some florals then masking them.
I washed over the card with Aztec paints, giving the background a lovely sheen. I then placed a tree stencil over the top and inked through with DI. When it was all dry I removed the masking fluid.
I coloured the castle and flowers with watercolour inks, and added a little glitter. You HAVE to have glitter with fairies and fantasy - don't you lol?!
I blended DI around the edges of the panel and matted it onto black card. I placed stamped copy paper images around the edges of the base card to decide where to put them. I stamped the fairy and painted her. I removed the wings and coloured her with alcohol pens and Aztec paints, then added glitter.
I stamped several images around the edges of the base card with DIs. I then attached the panel to the card, and added the lady in 3D.
I'm really pleased with this card, it's just how I wanted it to turn out! This design has managed to capture the ethereal feel that I wanted, like a magical misty forest.I hope Galadriel would approve!
Thank you for visiting my blog today, I hope you've enjoyed this post and that you'll pop by again soon :)
