* GDT Crafting by Designs: Fairy Wishes


I was delighted to win a recent challenge at Crafting By Designs Challenge Blog, and even more thrilled to be asked by Doris to Guest Design.

The challenge this week is Things with Wings and here is the card I made:

I've had this Lavinia silhouette fairy stamp (Freya) for well over a year and this is the first time I've used her. To be honest I'm not such a good stamper, but one of my Christmas gifts was a stamping platform and wow ... it's opened up a whole new world for me!

I made the background with distress oxide inks, smooshing the ink onto a craft mat, spritzing with water then dipping, dabbing and drying the background card in-between new colours. The edges of the card are inked and the fairy is grounded with ink applied along a torn piece of paper. The gorgeous sentiment is from Inkilicious, as are the small foliage stamps used all around the edges. I added some Diamond Sparkle Medium to the fairy dust and to the fairy wings. 

I matted the stamped scene onto black textured paper and then attached it to a 6 x 6 inch card base. 

Thanks to the team at Crafting By Designs for inviting me to be a guest designer.
My badge is now proudly displayed in the side bar!
