Rainbow Fairy with Alcohol Inks

This little fairy is from our new Fairy range - isn’t she pretty?

To make this card you will need:

Crimson Cloud Fairy Picking Flowers Stamp Set

Spellbinders Grand Nestabilities Large Labels.

Adirondack Alcohol Inks - Purple Twilight, Pool, Stonewashed, Lettuce

Alcohol Blending Solution

Stazon Black

Memento Tuxedo Black

White Card Stock 10” x 6” x two pieces

Clear Acetate Sheet

Button and Twine


Create your card base from white card stock and die cut an aperture in the front and back panels using the Large Labels die. Repeat with the second sheet of cardstock.

Cut out 2 pieces of acetate and stamp the fairy on one of them using Stazon Black. Make sure it is dry and turn over to paint your fairy using the alcohol inks. 

Put to one side and use the remaining inks on your palette mixed with some blending solution to paint diagonal stripes across the front of one of your card bases.

Attach your painted fairy acetate sheet behind the front aperture, and your other clear acetate sheet in front of the back aperture.

Glue the second die cut card base to the inside of the card - lining the apertures up. This will cover up where you have glued your acetate in place.

Stamp your sentiment using the Memento ink on the spare piece of painted white card stock and cut to shape.

Fix with a pretty button and some twine.

Now simply colour some pearls with the alcohol inks and stick them randomly.

When the card is closed you can see straight through it - my Granddaughter will love hanging this  up to her window.
