Today I spent my usual hours at Jacqueline's getting hardly anything done, but I did start to make my entry for the Make My Monday challenge where we're still doing things with wings, but this week its Fairies or Angels.
I've got a lovely silhouette stamp of a fairy ( cant remember where from ) sat on some grass and decided to base my card on that. Have a look and see what you think
First I stamped the fairy in black Adirondack in the bottom corner of some Clarity Stamp silk card, and then I drew around a 2p on a Post It note, cut it out, and placed it towards the top left hand corner.
I then used my Speedball brayer and a Big and Juicy ink pad (Vibrant Primary) to roll colour in the corner down towards the moon till the Post It was covered, and it was peeled off. I then brayered some Pesto Adirondack in the Fairy's corner.
Next I used Adirondack black to stamp flower silhouettes along the bottom of the card. I stamped an old tree in the top corner as if it was a protruding branch ( the tree was a sketch that I had made into a clear rubber stamp by a company I found in a magazine, Tandastamps ), and added some leaves from a Clarity set.
I must admit that most of the black ink ended up on my fingers, and when I touched the card it was transferred to places where I didn't want ink, so I had to keep stamping leaves to cover smudges.
The stamped picture was then mounted onto some really dark navy card and placed on a cream card from my stash, and finished with a black Verve sentiment.
WOW!!!!! I've just realised that I've not used my beloved BS or Stampin' Up products, what's going on???
I'm doing my Super Hero stuff tomorrow with Nathan, so hope to be back in a few days.
If you have the time to, I'd love to read your comments on my card.
