Cardmaking

Tell a Fairy Tale – I dare you!

Happy Friday crafty friends, I hope you’ve had a fab week? It’s time for a new Daring Cardmakers Challenge and this week the lovely Rizwana, in honour of National Tell A Fairy Tale Day would like you to take out your fairies, goblins, witches, elves, trolls, giants and talking animals. Create a card inspired by your favourite Fairytale or fairytale character. I chose to use Cindy Ella and the sentiments from the Princess Tales JMC Designs digital colllection.

I am still working through a file of papers I’ve created with inks, paints, sprays etc! This background is a piece of watercolour paper and some watercolours which I painted on and then sprinkled rock salt to create the pattern. I think I was trying to create a galaxy effect and it didn’t work but I thought it would work for a fairy tale project somehow.

I coloured Cindy with alcohol pens and added some highlights with white and gold gel pen and then some glitter with my spectrum noir glitter marker (I can never capture the sparkles in photos but I promise her dress is really quite shimmery!

I cut the sentiment out and added a border with green and yellow alcohol pens to complement the background.

I love being part of Julia’s Design Team and playing with her gorgeous characters. This fairy tale collection is so fun! I hope you will share your fairy tale inspired cards with us this week too!
