Fairy Bubbles

Hello my crafting friends, sorry I have been a bit absent of late, so much to do so little time to do it, you know the drift! Anyhow, I managed to get some craft time in this afternoon so I have produced this little bit of magic for you. I know I am back with the faeries, away with them at times lol! I just loved the vision of a Fairy blowing bubbles in the forest/woods/wilderness, whatever, see I told you I was away with the faeries lol!

Now for her being in whatever setting she may be in, you have to use your imagination lol! I did not wish to fill the image with trees or leaves, just an open space.

For the background I used DI Iced Spruce, Weathered Wood and Tattered Rose. I took the stencil Textured Scraped Paint, taped it at the top of the card and spread some modelling paste over certain areas then coated it with Glamour Dust , does not show on this image sadly but I will add another at the end of this post.

I die cut and embossed the fairy and coloured her in with Spectrum Noir Pens, I did stamp in her face but not her arms or legs. I die cut her wings out of acetate and coloured the back with Spectrum Noir Pens, inked over the back with my Versamark ink pad and sprinkled with Glamour Dust. I placed her on the card but did not attach her at this point, just so I could work out where the bubbles would start, I then drew the bubbles in by drawing round various size tops of bottles with a White water colour pencil. I faux bleached these with water and dabbed dry with kitchen towel. I then drew on the little shiny mark again using the water colour pencil.

On the bottom I stamped the Mushrooms using DI Weathered Wood and painted them in with the same DI. I also added some little bits of grass on the bottom so it looked like the ground.

I attached the fairy in her place then added the bowl and stick for the bubbles! Well she had to be using something  though perhaps she could have magically wished them in the air!!!

There you have the finished card, dimensions are 5" X 7".
