I created this card that reminds me of summer using Designs by Ryn stamps. I used Ryn's two beautiful Flower Lace stamps together with one of her Faeries from the Dancing Faerie Set. I find it amazing that she hand drew the lace which looks like the 'real thing' when stamped as you can see below. .
The background was created by stamping Flower Lace 1 with Brilliance Platinum Planet Ink over dark purple card stock. The light is catching the lace at the top so it appears lighter than the bottom, but it's not.
I stamped Flower Lace 2 using Colorbox Midnight & Boysenberry pigment inks, then embossed with clear and cut the flowers out. The Faerie from the Dancing Faerie Set was stamped with the Boysenberry Ink and embossed with clear. I coloured her with Stargazer Micacolor paints. Her skin is painted lightly which is difficult to see in the photo.
The leaves are from a Crealies Die - CL CP 06 (actually creates a flower, but I've seen Miranda using them for leaves & I love them). I also painted them with the same Micacolor paints which are beautiful, mica powder gives a shine that again you cannot see in the photo.
If you have a chance, please stop by Miranda's and Eileen's Blogs, both with lots of inspiration, who are also on Ryn's Design Team.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your day !
