Fairies and Elves Card

Morning everyone. Did you have a good weekend?  My weekend's crafting went well, if a little slowly. I got my mum's Mother's Day card done on Saturday (I can't wait to share it!) and my friend Connie's leaving card made yesterday. Today I'm going to make my mother-in-law's.

This card is the second one I made with the Fairies and Elves Wee Folk stamps. This time I used it with the Japanese Reeds stencil.

The background was created using the shaving foam technique. I filled a tray up with shaving foam then spritzed on Tattered Angels' Glimmer Mists (Lavender Fields and Sapphire) and swirled it around before taking the print. The Glimmer Mists have mica in them so they give a slight shimmer to the background - I wanted the sky to look magical.

I wanted to keep the moon white so I cut a mask the same size as the stencil's moon and used that instead. I put that in place before I took the print.

I then used the Reeds stencil and inked through Black Soot Distress Ink..............

..................before going over it with Diamond Sparkle Medium. This is a clear sparkly gel so it gives the black underneath a lovely sparkly finish.

The Fairies and Elves are stamped in Jet Black Archival and it's finished off with some holographic glitter on the stars and some clear Sakura Stardust pen on their wings (just in case it wasn't sparkly enough!).

I do like the background but I can't help thinking that my magical sky looks more like a magical sea. I do hope my fairies can swim!
