CCEE1726 ~ Fairy Day ♥

Hello friends ♥

Such sweetness  ~ Saturday was Fairy Day!  
 Frances is the hostess again this week for the CCEE Stampers 
and her challenge is create a fairy card.

I inked up one of my very first CC Designs stamps
She's been in my collections for years :)
Since she's a 'Swiss Pixie', that makes her a fairy, I'm sure!

Something different I've been dabbling with is my collection of inks.
I'm slowly learning how to use them more,
like today's simple background work.
I'm using the original distress ink by Tim Holtz - classic and simple!
I keep trying my new distress oxide inks 
and can't quite get the hang of them (yet) ...
 looks like I'll be visiting some you-tube videos ;)
For Butterfly Nora, I stamped her, then masked off her silhouette, 
then started sponging around for a warmth around her.

And I love, love, LOVE that I'm revisiting my forgotten stamps
(I have my friend, Barb, to thank for that - challenging our stash!)
It's a wonderful way to use stamps that haven't seen ink
or ink for a long while ;)

Here is the link to all the CCEE Stampers where more fairy goodness awaits:

We hope you can join in the challenge this week.  
If you upload your card to a gallery, like Splitcoaststampers, use the code CCEE1726.
I hope you have a fairy wonderful kind of day ♥
Big hugs, bigger blessings!

  2. She is a real cutie and beautifully coloured. I love my Distress Inks and love to make backgrounds and to colour with as well. I also buy white ribbon, so I can colour it to match whichever colour I have used in my picture. The things you can do with it are endless. Hugs, Carol S.xx

  3. The sponged yellow behind this cutie looks so bright and cheery. I haven't delved into the Oxides yet. The regular Distress inks work just fine for me. Your sweet pixie/fairy is adorable.

  4. What a delightful fairy! Love your colors and design, Kelly!
