Yesterday I shared the process of making these awesome faux watercolor/ink smooshing backgrounds and today I wanted to share two of the final products that came out of them.
The mini story behind this project was my lack of creative motivation and my daughter’s desire to help me out of the slump. She chose the stamp sets and the color palettes and told me to go! It was great fun and lots of giggles in the craft room.
I actually started by taking a half sheet of copic xpress paper and filling it with all of the images from the Lawn Fawn Fairy Friends and Gleeful Gardens stamp sets. Then I colored them with copic markers that matched the color palettes I used for the backgrounds. I die cut everything out and sorted it by color family. Then I used my largest Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle frame to cut the backgrounds down to A2 size and started laying out my cards.
Here is the first one with the pink/orange/yellow color palette. I just love the whimsy of these fairies paired with the background. To finish it off I added a stamped, heat embossed sentiment from Avery Elle and some clay hearts from Honey Bee Stamps.
Next I moved on to the blue/purple background and set of images. It’s close to the same layout with a few variations. These fairies never get old for me and I love the snails with them.
Adding the snails to this card made the bottom feel heavy. I needed to counter this with a substantial sentiment which came from the same Avery Elle stamp set.
This time instead of the hearts, I used Nuvo crystal drops in caribbean blue randomly throughout the background. I love the texture these give.
I added white gel pen accents to everything in both cards and also Wink of Stella clear glitter pen to all the fairy wings.
I love how these cards turned out and am excited to see what comes of the other two backgrounds I still have waiting to play with.
I appreciate you sharing your time with me. Have a fabulous day!
