Today I am back with a new card. I used the adorable “Fairy Garden” and “Fall Buddies” stamp sets by Hello Bluebird.
First, I stamped the images and cut them out using my Brother Scan’n’Cut. Then I colored them using Arteza and Zig Markers.
I die cut two Hello Bluebird Grassy Knoll grass borders and ink blended them Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. For the background I initially used Scattered Straw, Abandoned Coral and Shabby Shutters. But that was just way too bright for what I wanted to do. So I added Antique Linen and Tattered Rose Distress Oxide Ink on top and that toned the colors down! I stamped the sentiment and the little beeline and heat embossed it in gold.
I adhered the grassy borders to the background and then added all the images using foam tape. Then I added everything to an A2 sized card base. But the background still looked a bit empty to me. So I carefully peeled up the bee and the fairy, masked the sentiment and the grass area and sprinkled Lawn Fawn’s Liquid Pixie Dust over the background. It it really hard to see in the pictures but it gave lots of shimmer and shine to the background. That finished off my card for today!
I hope you enjoyed this one! Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
