Fairy on toadstools blank card - Day 69 of my 366 day challenge


Fairy on toadstools blank card 
Day 69 of my 366 day challenge

Hi Craft Addicts!

This card was made after I had coloured in the toadstools image but thinking about it a bit more, the next one I do I think will be in a box frame so I can even more dimension to it.

Anyway, I first of all took the "toadstools" colouring card from the Nature 4" x 6" card collection from Chameleon. I know they have been made in conjunction with the Chameleon pens but I have used red Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and coloured in the toadstools. I used the IG pens to colour the stalks with green shades for the grass and the TB4 for the background sky.

Once I was happy (as I ever will be) with it, I then used the Spectrum Noir clear Sparkle pen and painted the toadstools. I let it dry and then cut it out as I didn't want to used the white background.

I had previously coloured a "tartan" pattern panel (from Craftwork Cards) using the "Shaded Lilac" Tim Holtz Distress inks (taking out the centre first0 and glued it to some teal cardstock - I cut round the panel right at the edge so that it just left a slight border.

I glued the panel on to a 6" white 300/350gsm card in the centre and then added the toadstools onto it using foam pads to give it height (I also shaped them slightly, again to give them dimension.

I then cut out a Tattered Lace fairy in black cardstock and glued it behind the topper so it looks like she is coming out from behind them. I used the "For You" sentiment from Tonic Studios to show what it looked with a message but haven't stuck it down.
