I like the mystical feeling of fairy lanterns, so the inspiration for my card came from them:
I used two different tones of inks and a sponge dauber to create the ombré background onto a snow layering paper panel. Then, I stamped the fairy image and sentiment with black ink. I filled in the fairy outline with a black marker to create a silhouette.
I adhered the panel over a Black Layering paper card base, and after that, I used a black Snow Layering paper panel to die cut the forest oval border. I adhered this panel over the card with foam tape. Finally, I used Glossy Accents to add glitter over the fairy, and to adhere the clear droplets.
Well, as part of this release, Hero Arts is giving away one kit as a prize to one blog reader – selected from the comments across all of the blogs in the hop. Here is the list of bloggers so you can get lots of inspiration:
