Night Fairies

With our wonderful world of savings going on in Flourishes Gambler’s Sale right now - we thought we’d bring you even more wonderful ideas this week.  We want to inspire you with things you might want to put on your shopping list before they’re gone!

Today I thought it would be fun to play with our adorable Garden Fairies set, giving it a dreamy night-time look.  I began with Flourishes Classic White Cardstock, stamping with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  Then I coloured it with Copics to match some pretty paper in the store - Echo Park - Keepin’ Cozy.  I love to use paper that’s meant for an ocassion (for instance Christmas or Winter) and use it in another application.  The dreamy swirlys and frosty colors of this paper really works for the fairy theme.  

Here you can see a closer view of the colouring and you can also see that I really shimmered the card up by spritzing some Mister Huey’s Shine mist on the card.  It really gives it that magical feel, below when the card is tipped it really shows how shimmery it is.  

I also added some pretty smoke gray seambinding, enamel dots and placed it all on a base of Classic Black cardstock.  

Inside I stamped one of the sentiments in a pretty soft blue green and added some designer paper to match the layout of the outside of the card.  

Our Talented Senior Design Team have some beautiful designs to show off for you today from our Sale so head on over and visit:
