Hi everyone! Today is King’s day in the Netherlands, which under normal circumstances means, the whole land turns orange. Coincidentally, over at MFT there is currently a color challenge which includes orange! So I took this opportunity to take part in the challenge and create a card with lots of orange and the adorable Flower Fairies.
First I stamped the fairies on Perfect Colouring paper with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, and colored them with my copic markers:
- Hair: E51, E53, E55
- Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
- Dress: BG10, BG11, BG32, BG13, BG15
- Leaves: BG10, BG11, BG32
- Flowers: Y19, YR04, YR6
After coloring, I used the coordinating dies to cut them out. To create the background, ink blended Distress Oxide Mustard Seed and Carved Pumpkin on white cardstock. To add interest to the background, I diluted the Carved Pumpkin and created splatters. To also create shimmering splatters, I used Gansai Tambi watercolors.
The sentiment I stamped with VersaMark ink on Mermaid cardstock from Lawn Fawn and heat set the white embossing powder. From white cardstock, I die cut a frame which I placed on the background with Scotch Foam Tape. The sentiment strip and Flower Fairies I adhered with foam tape as well.
For some finishing touches, I put Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents in a number of places, which you can see very well in the detailed photos above. I love how much this adds to the Flower Faries, it gives them that bit of extra. On the background I also put a few Nuvo Drops White Blizzard, which when they dry, pick up the color of the background.
I hope you like this card and it gave you inspiration. Thanks for stopping by and see you next time!
