Masked Fairy In Green (Or Rust and Brown)...

Hello! Today I have made a card using the gorgeous Masked Fairy in Green from ching-chou kuiks Fantasy Art Collection (sheet 9 plate 33). I have colored her with Copics and given her a little sparkle on her wings with a Clear Spica glitter pen, on her jewelry with a Gold Spica glitter pen, and on her mask with Stardust Stickles. I did a little ink distressing around the edges of the Designer Paper and added some faux stitching. For the final touch I used Golden Brown Scribbles 3D paint to make little faux pearls around the edges of the picture. The Scribbles paint did not settle into as pretty of a pearl shape as Liquid Pearls seems to, but it's what I had in brown! One trick I have learned is to tap the underside of your cardstock after you apply paint to be faux pearls. It helps it "settle" so you don't have those Dairy Queen ice cream cone tops on the tip!

The Details:
Stamp: Masked Fairy In Green - ching-chou Kuik's Fantasy Art Collection - Sweet Pea Stamps
Paper: My Mind's Eye, Dark Chocolate, White (Paper Trey Ink)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Walnut Stain Distress Ink
Skin: R00,E00,E11,E13,R20
Wings: Y17,YR15,YR16,YR18,E07
Mask and Background: YG21,YG23,YG25,BG10,BG11,BG32,BG13
Misc: Spellbinders Nestabilities Scalloped Rectangle, Golden Brown Scribbles 3D Paint, Atyou Spica glitter pens in Clear and Gold, Stardust Stickles.

I hope you have a Magical Day!

Traci, gorgeous, as usual. You are soooo talented. Like everyone else commented, I love the color combo. I had to keep starring at it, because it does not look like a card at all, almost looks like something that should be hung on the wall.

Amy said...

Your attention to detail on this is out of this world Traci! I agree with everyone when they say it should be hung on a wall! :)

Micki said...
