Hello my friends. I can now post this card as the recipient has had it. It was made for a girl's 7th birthday to which my little one was invited.
All the stamps used here re from Visible Image and can be found here. They are all from the Fantasy range.
I started by stamping Fae Hope and the castle in black archival ink and then masked them off. The background is created by the mystical map which I inked in gathered twigs and walnut stain for border and old paper on inside. It is achieved by masking and multiple stamping. I added some script with the Bronte' script stamp. The whole background is inked with old paper and antique linen distress ink and some scattered straw.
I removed masks and set about creating Fae's dress. The dress is from velvet paper and the cape is angelina fibres. Her accessories are angelina film. So a lot of fussy cutting involved. She is then coloured with spectrum noir pencils.
The castle is coloured in with spectrum noirs.
The topper is ripped against a ruler and inked with walnut stain. I stuck it down on an 8x8 blank card.
I stamped the sentiment in versamark and embossed in brown. I cut it banner shaped and tore other edge which i then inked with walnut stain. I shaped it and stuck t across as shown.
Finally I got the meltpot out for a play and used antique copper UTEE which i dropped on craft sheet and stamped with the shield stamp in it giving it shape and texture. It's ended up looking like a seal which i really like.
So I hope you like my make, Theresa xx
