Design Team Make for "Love To Craft Challenge Blog" #37 August 2019

The first of the month is here, which means another chance to enter the "Love To Craft Challenge Blog", challenge #37 for August 2019 is "anything goes".  If you have a minute, please do pop over to the blog and look at some of the fab makes made by my fellow Design Team colleagues.

For my card, I created a background using Colorbox Inks and Brusho paint on a gelliplate.  This created a beautiful textured look to the background is a beautfiul warm orange.

I stamped the Lavinia Stamps figure called "Sky" in Versafine Clair "Fantasia" shade of ink, which is a dark purple colour.  

I masked the sun/moon off and gave it a dark edge using Versafine "Smokey Grey" shade of ink and llightened the middle slightly by using Antique Linen Distress Oxide.

I stamped the branches using a Lavinia Stamps "Mini Branch" from their pound stamp section also in Versafine Clair "Fantasia" shade of ink.  I stamped both sentiments in the same ink.  (I don't know who makes the sentiment as I purchased it as a job lot of stamps).

I used a torn piece of paper to create the landscape effect.  Then stamped the stars in the background using another Lavinia Stamps stamp called "Stars" which is also in their pound section.  Finally, I used a gold Sakura Gelly Roll pen to add colour and shimmer to the outline of the fairy and filled the wings with the same colour
