Sprinkled with Fairy Dust

Hello everyone, I hope your week is going well.

Chocolate Baroque recently launched their Summer Fairy Collection, what a gorgeous set of stamps.  I have a design today using the beautiful July Fairy.


I created the background with White, Midnight & Teal Dyulsions inks.  I stamped flowers from the beautiful Sunny Sunflower set (that go very well with the Summer Fairies) with Olive and Magenta Hue Archival inks.   I highlighted the centers with a white pen.

I stamped the July Fairy with Black Archival ink and coloured with Inktense pencils.  I added lots of glitter to her wings and dress.   The sentiment is from Fairyland Words.

The die cut flowers are Crealie - CLCF22 which I sponged Distress Inks to colour.  I added dark rhinestones to the centres and the little spray die cuts from Memory Box - Flutter Vine.

Here is a look at the complete Summer Fairy Collection, sold individually or as a multi-buy set.  For a limited time when you order the collection you will receive a FREE Inspiration Leaflet (printable download) of 'never been seen' designs & instructions by the Design Team.





Well that's all for now thanks for visiting and your kind comments.  Enjoy the rest of your week,
Shirley

This is beautiful Shirley, and the colours and the Sunflowers stamped in the background work really well. The fairy is adorable with her lovely glittery wings and dress, and I love the way you have die cut and then coloured the Crealy flowers to match the colours in the card. x
