This is Faith, one of the four beautiful new fairy stamps in SCACD's Zen Beauties set. Faith
was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and colored with Copic markers. Polychromos colored pencils were used to add some detail to her hair. Gold Spica Glitter pen was used to add sparkle to her hair and fairy trails under her feet. Clear Spica Glitter pen was used to add sparkle to her wings.

Post-It notes were used to create a path for the Copic-colored sun rays, then used to cover the rays so the Copic-colored grey sky could be added.

Here's a close-up so that you can see a bit of the glitter!

The stamped scene was matted with gold metallic cardstock. One of the two dies included in SCACD's beautiful Classic Corners die set was used to die-cut gold metallic cardstock three times. The corners were added to the stamped scene.

I wanted the background to be relatively clean so that the stamped scene would be the focal image. The same Post-It notes were recycled to block out an area along the bottom of the card. Golden Glitz Delicata ink was sponged onto green cardstock over my Bubbles Dylusions stencil. This stencil seems to be sold out, but the others are on sale, so check 'em out!

Green cardstock was die-cut with the Flourish Trim die by Spellbinders. While the cardstock was still in the die, it was sponged with Golden Glitz Delicata ink. The die-cut was placed over the stenciled design at the bottom of the card. Green cardstock was die-cut with one of the ribbons dies from a Blueprints set by Die-Namics. The die-cut was edged with Golden Glitz Delicata ink and placed over the top of the Flourish Trim die. The card front was edged with Golden Glitz Delicata ink then adhered to the card.

Thanks for visiting today!
