A Faerie with Butterfly Wings

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well this week.    

I'm back with another Faerie Dreaming in a garden.   It's a place that I like to be.    I've used stamps again by the fabulous Chocolate Baroque company. 

I sprayed  Dylusions Inks (Lime, Peacock, Blue & Green) on the background, using water colour paper.  I also used templates, molding paste and Viva Inka-Gold.  When the molding paste was dry I sprayed it with Blue Dylusions Ink.   

When the background was dry, I stamped & embossed the Faerie & Dream with Black.   I highlighted the wings using a water brush & Dylusions Inks and covered them with Glossy Accents to create more dimension.   (see close-up photo below) 

Chocolate Baroque Stamps:
The silhouette Faerie is from the Gossamer Wings Set
Dream is from the Artistic Expressions Set (I use this set a lot !)

Crafters Market Templates:
Mini Zinnia TWC143S
Mini Flower Frenzy TCW157S

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day !

This is a really gorgeous card, Shirley. I have to study what you did in more detail because I haven't spent enough time to master the layering of colour and masking.
Thank you for leaving a comment for me for the Wednesday desk hopping :-) I love this weekly appointment because it keeps me engaged. There is so much doing that I could leave my art in second place and get grumpy.

This is stunning Shirley, beautiful colours as always. I love the effect you've got with the flowers and the fairy is wonderful, the glossy accents finish the wings perfectly.

Hope you didn'tget caught by the big storm, it looked like it was headed your way for a while.

Shirley, that background you created is as mystical and ethereal as the faerie! It's really pretty to look at, and I know it must've taken some time to create.

Congrats on your upcoming publication! I can imagine how excited you are. I'm excited FOR you!
