This card is made with one of the stamps from Fairy Celebration. When I first saw this stamp set in the annual catalogue last year I liked it, but didn’t know whether I liked it enough to buy it.
Well, after it carried over to this year’s catalogue I caved in, and I’m glad I did. One piece of advice for you: if you want to watercolour the images as I did, then you do need watercolour paper. Textured paper or thick cardstock won’t do.
I used an Aquapainter, but if you had a paint brush that would do fine. I tried not to use too many colours – Rose Red, Peekaboo Peach, Old Olive, Melon Mambo, Soft Sky and Powder Pink.
I used Stampin’ Up! Basic Black archival ink so that the colour wouldn’t run. The backgound mat paper is from Naturally Eclectic because I thought it went well with the image.
Now to try out the other images in the set. I’m thinking one of them would make a good shaker card – watch this space!
