* Vera Lane Studio: Wish and Dream Fairies


Happy Monday!

Today for my Vera Lane Studio DT posts I have 2 cards, one featuring the Wish Fairy and one featuring the Dream Fairy.

Here is the Wish Fairy:

and here is Dream Fairy:


Both cards were made using the same background technique.
I took a piece of 300gsm white card, measuring 13.5 x 13.5 cm, for each background. I used a mixed media plate (circle 10cm) and brayered Distress Oxide ink over its surface. I then added some diluted brusho splatters and lightly spritzed over the plate with water. The plate was then turned over and stamped into the centre of the card and left in place for a minute or so, so that the inks could absorb into the card. The edges of the card were then inked with Distress oxides and water droplets added to bleach out some colour. I doodled around the circle edge and the outside edge of the background.
Inside the circle, I stamped some text in Hickory Smoke DO, using scrap paper to mask off the edge of the circle. Using a torn strip of paper I inked a mound of earth for the fairies to stand upon.
The fairies were coloured with Copic markers and Stickles Diamond glitter was added to their wings. Some dots of glitter were also added to the background. The fairies were popped on foam tape and adhered to the circles.

Wish Fairy's background has Twisted Citron DO and splatters of purple liquid Brusho. Stamping is in Hickory Smoke DO and grounding in Peeled Paint, shadow with Hickory Smoke and Faded Jeans DO. Edges of the card have blended Twisted Citron and Hickory Smoke DO with water splatters.

Dream Fairy's background has Peacock Feathers DO and splatters of orange liquid Brusho. Text stamping is in Hickory Smoke DO and grounding in Peeled Paint, shadow with Hickory Smoke and Faded Jeans DO. Edges of the card have blended Peacock Feathers and Hickory Smoke DO with water splatters.
