Faerie Dreams

Hello everyone!  Ann here with a simple little faerie card, using pigment powders to create an amazing and unique background.  Although I have used  Ken Oliver's Color Burst powders, which I bought a little while ago, currently at Scrapbook Boutique there are newer products which would work just the same.  In particular, Lindy's Stamp Gang pack in either Industrial Chic or Prairie Wildflowers would be a great choice, or individual Mica powders, which leave a lovely shimmer.  The little die is by Memory Box and is called Graceful Faerie, and SBB have this one and several more faeries to choose from.

The method I use for creating with these concentrated pigment powders, is to sprinkle them lightly onto dry watercolour card - never squeeze, just tap the bottom of the bottle lightly.  Also, I choose complementary colours, or those which will blend to make a new pretty colour, not opposites, which will leave a muddy mess.  I have used lemon, aquamarine and a little lime on this card.   I bought these colours a little while ago, so they may not all be available at Scrapbook Boutique currently, but I encourage you to take a look there as there may be more coming soon.  The faerie die is new in stock.

The coloured square measures 8.5cm, the black mat is 10.3cm square and my base white card is a square 12 x 12cm.  The embellishments are Ranger Enamel Accents in black and Caribbean Coast.  The sentiment is by Mama Elephant - Labeled Messages.

I went a little mad with Faeries, so if you are interested, there are three more faerie cards on my blog if you'd like to take a look:)

Thank you so much for stopping by - I hope you enjoy your own crafty time!
