Fairy at Dusk

Fairy at Dusk - This is a new type of card for me. I have not really done much inking other than the edges. I watched a Stamp TV tutorial and really wanted to try my hand at it and I must say that I am pretty pleased with the way that it came out and I had the perfect excuse; as the challenge this week at Crafts 4 Eternity is to feature stamping in your project.

I used distress inks. I believe I used about a dozen different colors.

I did not mask out my fairy and the next time I will as the horizon line was a bit of a problem to hide. I use a color box pad for the fairy and as the horizon line was a problem, I used a water brush to push some of the ink out, then used the distress inks to paint in the fairy's skirt and the water where she is standing. Skickles was then my best friend to further hide the horizon line.

My fairy and sentiment stamp is Heritage Handcrafts.
