Hello there crafty friends! Crystal here from Tawny Owl Paperie with a beautiful card using the newly released Winter Fairies stamp set for a card that could be used for the Holidays or just a winter themed card to brighten someone’s day!
This is a two step stamping process… I stamped the light string three times on a white card front measuring 4-1/4 x 5-1/2″ using Memento tuxedo black ink. I then lined up the little light bulb and stamped it using different colors.
I then colored in each of the little light sockets and bulbs… which actually didn’t take very long. The lights are so cute and quick to color in. I used the following copic markers:
Light Sockets ~ N0, N2, N5, N7, N9
Light Bulbs ~ R000, R14, R29, Y000, Y13, Y35, B0000, B00, B02, B04, G0000, G000, G46, YG11, YG63
I gave each of the little light bulbs a bit of a glow by coloring around the light bulb with the lightest color. The green was a little dark so I ended up going around the outer edge of the glow with the Colorless Blender… lightened it right up! I placed my card front in my Travel Stamp Platform and lined up the sentiment. Sadly, I didn’t notice a bit of ink that I had neglected to clean off of my platform so I ended up with a couple of smudges near both ends of my crisp clean white card front *insert palm to head emoji*… I tried to fix it with my handy dandy Tombow Mono Sand Eraser, but it wouldn’t work. I opted to trim off the ends.
So… I decided to pop up the panel onto a white card base and I’m actually really happy with the end result! I hope you like it too! Be sure to check out the new release… there’s only a limited number available!!
Thanks so much for stopping by! See ya next time.
