Warm colours Winter Fairy

Hello. I can't believe how this year has flown by. My card today was started in August, on a fabulous day playing with lots of crafty goodies at Waterworth Towers. Judith, Lesley and I were invited to spend a day getting painty, inky and generally having fun. It was a day I'll remember for a long time as I love the company of good friends who have a common interest in crafting and learned such a lot from the discussions we had.

The background for my card was made from red, pink and yellow Acrylic paint and the Gelli Plate. I brayered the paint across the plate and laid the Climbing Vine stencil on top then placed paper over it to take a first print. I then lifted the stencil off and laid down black card for the second print which is the one I used for my card. While waiting for the paint to dry I sprayed a strip of white card with yellow, pink and orange Dylusions. When the strip dried I stamped the standing Fairy and sentiment with Onyx Black Versafine. Before assembling the card, I trimmed the edges then mounted the Fairy and background onto black card. I added a few strips of ribbon and finished by attaching to orange card that had been embossed and a white base card. Thank you for stopping by today. Debbie.

A very striking combination with the black & I'm particularly struck by the way you used Gelli Plate for printing the colour onto black & then reversed the process in your fairy panel - creating the coloured card to stamp a black image onto. Using positive & negative images in this way is fascinating & I'm particularly struck by your textures & embellishing which catch the eye (those little gems are so much more effective in that colour rather than in black which is what I might have done, your doodled corner grounds the image beautifully & I love the effect of your ribbon layering). ………. got a bit carried away………….
