Design Team Make - Love To Craft Challenge Blog #33 (April 2019)

I have made this as part of the Design Team for the "Love To Craft Challenge Blog" #33 (April 2019), which is an "anything goes" challenge.  Please do pop over and take a look at the fabulous makes by my fellow Design Team colleagues.

I started this picture by creating the background with Distress Oxides in the following shades:  Antique Linen, Tumbled Glass, Spun Sugar and Salty Ocean.

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps verse called "Sacred Spells" in Versafine "Stormy Grey" ink and the the "Foxgloves" in Colorbox and Memento inks. I stamped "Field Grass" in Distress Ink in the "Crushed Olive" shade.

I then turned my attention to the fairy, which is a Lavinia Stamp called "Rue".  I needed to stamp a mirror image of her, I chose to use Versafine Clair "Purple Delight" shade of ink, so I did that first, by stamping onto the back of a large rubber backed stamp and then pressing my created background down onto the stamped image.  I was then able to align the same fairy stamp and create a look as if the fairies are having a tug of war.  

I then made the landscape that the fairies are standing on by using a landscape mask of torn paper and Distress Ink in a "Crushed Olive" colour.

I then used some Lavinia "Pound Stamps" for the leaves at the top and sides of the picture, for the stars around the fairies and also the flowers and snail at the base of the foxgloves.  Finally, I added some touches of silver and gold glitter using a Signo pen to areas of the fairies and also to the middle of the stars.
