Fairy House

Hello crafters, wow what a lot of rain we've had down south, a whole month's worth in 9 hours, so the BBC news said.

Well, today's card is based on the technique we learned at the August Workshop.  First of all, sorry to say that I totally forgot to take some photos as I went along, but I will explain in detail how I put it together :o)

First of all, I took a white 6 x 6 card and cut a black mat then a white mat.  I then put a little moon mask on the white card and sprinkled some Brusho's as follows:  Aqua Marine for the sky, the top third, then yellow and scarlet in the next two thirds.  I then spritzed the whole page until it was running with colour and laid a piece of kitchen roll over the whole card to mop up the excess, which, by the way, does take some of the intense colour off too, but I was happy with that.

The next job was to add a bit of stamping using the Hobby Art Decorative Background using Adirondack Stonewash, stamping it several times randomly over the card,  Then used the Imagination Craft Bubble Stencil to add a little more interest and also used Tumbled Glass Distress Ink.

I then decided what Lavinia stamps I was going to use and how I would stamp them out, so searched by stash and found a few favourites and one new one and stamped them with Versafine Back Onyx
Three Small Fairy Silhouette
Fairy Door or use Hide and Seek
Slender Mushrooms
Stars 1

As you can see by the finished card I added a few of them :o)  I then thought it needed a little bit of bling so stuck a piece of double sided adhesive sheet onto white card then punch it out using a 1" circle punch, removed the protective sheet then sprinkled on the Glamour Dust before pasting it onto the moon circle........

Well that's it for today, I hope you're enjoying the Brusho's and Lavinia, see you next week.

Love, Jan -x-

  1. Lovely card Jan, the layers of stencilling & stamping look great.

  2. Lovely Brushos background, softer than I have achieved but the mopping up is a good idea.

  3. Love the colours, they have come out so well! Layers give great depth xx
