Night Faeries
by Michele K. Henderson


Hello Everyone!

I'm so glad you could join us today!  Have you caught the faerie buzz yet? Faeries are so trendy right now, and lucky for us, Poppystamps has a beautiful collection of faeries to add to your summer crafty fun. Today I'm sharing a card I created with the Magnificent Mini Faeries! Take a look!


To create the colorful background, I used Distress Oxide inks and blended a few colors to create an evening sky. There's no right or wrong, just grab a sponge and have some fun! I wanted to take more tutorial photos, but the battery on my camera was dead! I had to make the card while the camera was charging, so I only have finished photos today. I guess that's part of the mystery of faeries - -  only the very, very lucky get a chance to see their magical dance.


I cut all of the images in black and glued them flat to my inked sky card panel. I wanted the scene to look like you had secretly come across this dancing duo on a midnight walk. I used a few tiny stars and dots from the Snowflake Oval Collage, Mushrooms and Toadstools, Preppy Flowers, and the ends of the Twisted Oak Branch. Just like magic, the faeries appear!

Thank you so much for joining us today!
