Blue Fairy delight by Miranda....


Hi there,

Today I have a creation with the new Autumn Fairy sheets for you.......I did feel a bit blue so......... created in blue shades. I've used the lovely cat image and several leaves and flowers which are also on the sheets. The trees are from the 'Terrific Treescapes clear sheet'. I've sponged first with pigment inks and added layers with different shades of blue.

The 2nd one has quit a different colourscheme.........I've landed on earth......... and used the lovely flower which is on the September Fairy sheet. I've blended with brown shades of Distress inks on smooth paper and after every layer I've stamped the flower with Versamark and embossed with clear embossing powder. The first flower on the left has been stamped while the paper was still white, than I started with the lightest colour(Antique Linen) heat dried between every layer and build up to the darkest colour (Walnut Stain)
When finished I've misted with water and rolled over some kitchen towel to get the white spots. The text 'Time flies' is from the Steampunkery sheet.

Hope you are inspired to fly with me in Fairyland ..........
till next time and thanks for visiting!

fairy greet,

  3. The way you have grounded your cat is lovely & he really looks like he is gazing into a magical snow globe. The second really intrigues me & I love the colours you used. Thank you for the clear description of the technique too - much appreciated.
