Sakura: Fairy in the Forest Card with VivaLasVegasStamps!
Today, I'm combining all the fun of Sakura's 3d Crystal Lacquer with the gorgeous rubber stamp image by VivaLasVegasStamps!
--I chased my muse into the forest and there flew the butterfly fairies--
3d Color Crystal Lacquer: Red, Yellow, Ivory
3d Pearl and Metallic Crystal Lacquer: Lilac, Gold
Butterfly Lady Rubber Stamp by VivaLasVegasStamps!
Copper pigment ink, clear embossing powder, microbeads and glitter, fibers, deckle scissors and distress ink.
Palm Tree Border paper and Glitter Brown Paisley card stock by Robin's Nest
I was very happy to see that the Ivory 3D Color Crystal Lacquer made a perfect skin tone for my butterfly lady.
I stamped the image onto the Palm Tree Border paper with copper pigment ink and embossed with clear fine embossing powder. Then I cut it out, inked the edges and glued it to the background paper (Brown Glitter Paisley).
I applied Ivory first and let it set up for a few minutes and sprinkled micro beads and glitter to the body area. Then the Pearl and Metallic 3D Crystal Lacquer because it's a bit thicker. Finally I colored the rest of the areas with the translucent Color 3D Crystal Lacquer.
Add a touch of fibers and Viola!
I hope you enjoyed my little excursion, I needed a diversion away from the Holidays to a warmer, more serene place :o)
