Fairytale.

It was Fluff's Birthday yesterday
and this is the card I made for her.
Yellow and purple being  her favourite colours.
I battled my innner deamons and got the 
'BRAYER'
out and actually used it for the very  first time 
to create the background  after looking at
loads of Lavinia tutorials on  how to do it!!
I knew  I wanted to use this colour palette but the colours 
were spread across 3 different stamp pad makers
that I had in my stash namely
SU, Adirondacks and Memento.
Now as I wasn't sure  if they  were  compatible I went straight 
to the oracle herself (Fluff) and asked the Q.
Back came the reply " If you tell me what your doing 
I can advise you more specifically".
To which I quickly replied nope  "It's on a need to know basis
and you don't need to know that" !!!!
Thankfully they all are.

I created the background using the Brayer 
and SU/Adirondacks ink pads. 
Torn strips of scrap paper to shape  the hills.
Lavinia Fairy 'Luna' stamped using Memento ink.
Lavinia flowers used were Wild flower,Bluebells,
Lavendar, Leaf trail and Trailing Ivy.
Sentiment is Anita's Stickers .
Card mounted onto yellow  SU cardstock.
I had fun making so much so that I made another 
scene up  in blue but that is now on it's way to Australia
so can't be shown yet.
Because the card was not a bog standard size 
I made a matching envelope for it too.

  4. Certainly doesn't look like your first attempt! Gorgeous brayed background. I'm not one for fairies but I love Lavinia's 'natural world' stamps. And guess what, Tracey lives right here in Ruthin! I always watch her demos at our one local papercraft fair and have a little spend. ;-)

  12. I'd say your brayer skills & your color combining is just spot on. Loved the soft sunset colors with this fairy silhouette, and having the overhanging branches around the perimeter added so much interest. Loved that you have the 'inner glow' too. Clever you to do such a beautiful matching envie too. I'm rubbish with envelopes! My hat's off to ya. TFS & Hugs too.

  13. Your card turned out fabulously Mrs A - great brayering!
    Bet Fluff will love it and is glad she didn't know why you were asking:). I always struggle with that technique but love watching Barbara Gray from Clarity Stamps do demos she makes it look so easy. xxx
