Land of Make Believe......

This card was made for the CRAFT challenge blog which we are sponsoring this week.

One of the themes is Fantasy/Land of Make Believe.

The stamp and sentiment come from the Sitting Fairy stamp set from the new Crimson Cloud Fairies range.

The stamp has cleverly designed so that the fairy is sitting on a base which could be a mushroom, the ground or even a grassy knoll and comes with a lovely range of sentiments.

I stamped my Sitting Fairy in Stazon onto some white cardstock. I stamped her again onto some Eclipse masking tape which I cut out and covered her with to create a mask.

I took some Tumbled Glass Distress Ink and using some blending foam, I blended a background around the fairy.

I removed the mask and painted her with some more distress inks - Victorian Velvet for the skin, Pumice Stone for the wings, Brushed Corduroy for the mushroom and Worn Lipstick for the flower in her hand.

I then took some Brushed Corduroy ink and rubbed it onto my craft mat and spritzed it with water. I dipped a paintbrush into the ink and flicked it across a Kraft card base to create a splatter background.

I trimmed the fairy panel slightly smaller than the card base, tore the edge and blended some Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink onto the torn edge to age it. I stamped my sentiment with the same Brushed Corduroy ink pad.

I finished the panel with a button and some twine and mounted onto the card base.

I love the way that the fairy is looking longingly off into the distance - as if she is day dreaming or waiting for her fairy prince!
