Autumn Fairies (by Shirley)

Hello everyone, I hope you are doing well.

The new Autumn Fairy Collection designs are so beautiful and a joy to work with.   I have two cards today to show you using all three DL sets.    It looks like 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 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.

I hope you have enjoyed these Fairy designs.  Please come back often as my talented teammates have lots more to show you this month.

  4. Beautiful cards! At the first the pink seems to ,ighten up! Inky greetings, Gerrina

  5. 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.
