Frosty Fairy (posted by Judith)

Hi Folks, here is a Wintery sample for you using the Winter Fairy stamp collection. I stamped the main fairy onto a piece of white card, and then created a mask which I placed over the image. I stamped some mushrooms from the Autumn Fairy collection and then created masks for those as well. I made some paper masks for the hills, by tearing some scrap paper, and sponged various shades of green across the background. Fnally, I used some blue ink to create a sky, adding a circle mask to create a sun.

I added some yellow in the circle area for the sun, and embossed some trees using white embossing powder. I then removed the masks and coloured the stamped images using Graph it markers. To finish, I added some glitter glue along the edges of the hills and to highlight the mushrooms.

To create the background, I embossed some snowflakes from the Reindeer Landscape stamp set using white embossing powder, and then covered the background with blue ink. I used a sentiment from the Winter Fairies stamp set, and added some blue organza ribbon and some gems to finish.

Thanks for stopping by, Judith xx

  1. This is delightful with the way the white embossed trees look as if they are snow laden & the grey hills in the background help create an ethereal fantasy sense. It's the white snowflakes tieing the whole design together echoing those trees, the matting & the sentiment borders that really catch my eye & I love the bold red toadstools she's surrounded by.

  2. This is a really pretty card. I love the way you have stamped, masked, and built up the background, and the contrast between the dark ink for the fairy and the toadstools and the white embossing for the rest. Lovely!
