Settling down…somewhat!

We are starting to relax after the earthquake the other day.  We have had hundreds of aftershocks but I haven’t felt any, thankfully.  So life is starting to get back to normal, or as normal as it can be right now. 

So I spent some time in my craft room and today I want to share a slimline card with you.

I used one of the cute new stamp sets from MFT stamps called Flower Fairies.  They are such sweet images. 

I stamped the images on Neenah Solar white Classic Crest 80lb cardstock with Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I colored them with a mixture of copic and spectrum noir alcohol markers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.  For the background I used Strathmore Bristol Smooth and then used distress oxide inks in tumbled glass for the sky and shabby shutters for the grass. I also used the MFT mini cloud edge stencil for the clouds.  I sprinkled some water on the background to activate the inks and also sprinkled some perfect pearls to add some shimmer.  The card base is made from Recollections white 110lb heavy weight cardstock.

I added shimmer to the wings and hearts of the fairies using clear wink of stella and added some clear sequins to finish things off.  I used the sentiment from the stamp set “Sending a sprinkle of love to brighten your day”.
