To see the kit in action, here's a card idea from Emily Midgett. You can see more from Emily on the hop today, too!
For today's project, I just had to color that pretty daisy and the sweet little fairy sitting "criss-cross-applesauce" as my kiddos like to say. I began by creating a mask of both the daisy and the fairy, both from the main kit. I then stamped the entire fairy on some Copic-friendly white card stock using Intense Black ink, masked her, then stamped the daisy upon which she would be sitting. After stamping both images, I added the daisy mask, as well, and softly blended Passion Flower, Bubble Gum, and Fresh Peach inks using some blending brushes.
After removing my masks, I colored my little fairy using Copic markers. I stamped the greeting from the main kit using black embossing powder, then added some Crystal Lacquer and some super fine glitter beneath her on the flower and in the blended sky, to make it look like she leaves a little sparkle everywhere!
I added a few of the confetti bits included in the kit, trimmed down the blended panel, and mounted it on an A2 black panel with some foam adhesive. I love what an impact the masking makes! So fun to create the little scenes with just a little help from some masking paper!
