I've been having a play with some of my new silhouette stamps. I treated myself to a few new sets, I've made this card using A Little Bit Scenic stamp set from Sheena Douglass called Hidden Fairies it's great to work with, I don't usually go for fairies but these were lovely and the leafy swirl and ivy leaves are gorgeous. The background is created using Luminarte Radient Rain daubers and spray with a touch of DI's too. I stamped the swirls and leaves with a pigment black ink, this actually took on the green of the background or maybe it has a green tinge that I just hadn't noticed before or maybe is because just a old pad? nuff rambling, I liked how it stamped anyway. I stamped the wee fairy with IndigoBlu Flitter glue and used guilding flakes on her, I thought this would make her shine as I imagine fairies should. Well she's no longer hidden, she's shiny and metallic, lol.
I really love those ivy leaves though, they're so realistic when stamped. I stamped a few extras and cut these out to add dimension.
Thanks for visiting and please let me know you've been here and what you think.
I love to hear from you.
