Autumn Fairies

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

Chocolate Baroque has just introduced their Autumn Fairy Collection, the first of a series of Seasonal Fairy sets.  They are all so beautiful and a joy to work with.   

I have two cards today to show you using the three Autumn sets.    I'm on a 'blue theme' with these Fairies.


My background (above) started with texture using light molding paste with TCW - Cell Theory stencil and when dry, spraying Dylusions (purple & turquoise) inks.    I used images from all three Autumn sets, stamped with black Stazon Ink.   I masked the mushrooms, used bleach to remove the ink and added purple Dylusions.  I also added glitter around the texture.   The Fairy is from the September Fairy set which I stamped and embossed with black on separate card stock, decoupaged and adhered over the background.   I added pink stickles to her wings.   Wish upon a Star is from Words of Inspiration.


The background (above) is again using Dylusions spray inks (Midnight, Teal & Linen).   Using TCW - Circle Explosion stencil I sprayed more Linen ink.  I added a little pattern as well from TCW-Solace stencil using Shaded Lilac Distress Ink.    I stamped the bubbles from Decorative Edges with Peacock Feathers Distress Ink.

I used Black Stazon Ink for the rest of the stamping and also highlighted with a white Gelly Roll Pen.  The mushrooms were masked and bleached a little again.    The mushrooms, branches at the top & butterfly are from November Fairy and the Fairy is from September Fairy.   The interesting flower along the edges is from Poppy Meadow.  I painted the mushrooms and wings with Purple Dylusions & water.

Here is a look at the three DL(third sheet) sets that are available individually or as a multi-buy special.   Also for a limited time, if you purchase all three sets, Chocolate Baroque is offering their Autumn Fairy Inspirations Leaflet (digital download) free.    The leaflet features 'never been seen' designs by the DT with complete instructions and more.   

Also new are Fairyland Words available individually or as a group.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  11. You should carry a public health warning Shirley because you can guess exactly what I am off to do now !

    Both are so pretty but the first in particular where you have achieve the effect of light coming up through the undergrowth.

  15. The amazing layers in both of these give such a superbly atmospheric sense to each, the bottom one especially & I love the way your fairy appears to be having a conversation with the butterfly. Striking that the two layouts with similar colours can look so different.
