Hey there bloggers!
Today I am participating in
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft®
and 100 Proof Press blog hop!
I made some fun ATC cards with the fairy stamps I recieved;
this is the "right webbed fairy".
Both companies are giving away big prizes if you
comment on all the blogs along the way! If you are interested you want to
I love taking pictures of ATC's because you
get to see the detail up close! Closer than your naked eye!
(ATC's are actually 2.5 x 3.5 inches in real life!)
I used the same techniques on all three ATC's.
The back ground:
I started with acrylic ATC's (Clear Scraps) and put a little gesso in the middle.
To get the textured look I took two cards at a time and sandwiched them
together (gesso in the middle) when I pulled them apart and allowed
them to dry I got that variegated look! Once dry I used a dry sponge and
Gelatos™ in the Blue Collection - Cotton Candy & Blueberry.
I drew in the dried gesso wiht the Gelatos™ and rubbed them in with
the dry sponges.
*This is the "fairy blowing a kiss" stamp.
Behing the ATC's I used the same dry spong technique with Gelatos™
and added a little iridescent medium. I embellished the ATC's with stars,
tiny words, doodling and pigment ink. The stars stamp is also from 100 Proof Press.
*"Magic stars" stamp
For the Fairies:
I stamped my fairies on watercolor paper with a
Stamper’s Big Brush Pen in black.
I got the skin color by watering
down an orangeArt GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencil.
I filled in the wings and dresses with
PITT® Artist Pens from the Blue and the Green collections.
I cut them out, ran the Stamper’s Big Brush Pen
along the edges and adhered them to the ATC's.
Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft will be giving away a $40 prize pack
and 100 Proof Press will be giving away a $30 gift certificate!
