Magic in Fairyland by Glenda

Today I wanted to share a couple of cards I made with the Summer Fairies.

This first one features a background that I made with PanPastels for issue 2 of Monday Mojo Magic last year.  I stamped the fairy with a mixture of black and blue Versafine, then embossed with clear.  It looks black in the photo, but it's actually a very dark navy.  The sentiment and fuchsia are stamped with Versafine and I've coloured the fuchsia with ColourSoft pencils.  The strip of paper behind the stamped panel is from the Essence of Nature CD.

This one has a subtle landscape background - again something I have covered in detail in one of my Monday Mojo emails - this is in issue 24, complete with a downloadable landscape template you can print and cut up.

The fuchsias have been repeat stamped along the top in a soft pink, then coloured with pencils.  I stamped the fairy on a separate piece of card and coloured her with pencils before cutting her out.  I stuck the body down, but left the wings free to give some dimension. 

The foliage along the bottom comes from a mixture of stamp sets, mainly Wild Meadow which is one of those really versatile sets that I keep coming back to time and time again.  The sentiments on both cards are from Fairyland Words clear stamp set.

If you buy the Summer Fairy collection at the moment, you will get a wonderful downloadable leaflet sent to you automatically free of charge.  It's packed with beautiful artwork by the DT, each with a great step by step write up of how the piece was made.

I hope you're enjoying the absolutely delicious artwork that our DT are producing - I know I am and there's lots more yummy artwork to come!

  8. The bright colours on the first and the light-feeling of the second are both so beautiful! A pleasure again to come here and gaze at beautiful artwork by you and the DT!

  9. Beautiful cards Mrs. W. Love the soft colors in the stamping. The Wild Meadow stamps go perfectly with them. Hope you don't my mentioning this but the Wisteria Lane stamps and Fragrant Honeysuckle stamps are favourites of mine to go with the Fairy stamps. The Fairy stamps are an absolute delight to work with. Thank you for bringing them to us.

  10. The first card has a lovely glow and the second is perfect for a little girl's birthday.

  11. Two gorgeous cards, I love the delicate backgrounds you have created Glenda, and your subtle coloring using Coloursoft pencils and Versafine inks! And yes, your DT makes great works indeed, you can be proud and happy with all the ladies. :) Hugs from France, Coco x

  12. Your colouring of the fuchsias in each of the designs is a real joy to behold. The rainbow colours of the fairy's wings in the second one really catching the eye magically, especially with how they are enhanced by that dragonfly. The background just yields more detail & interest the longer you look at it.
