Stampotique Word-Up Weekend!

Stampotique's Facebook Group has started "Word-Up Weekends" where we share projects created with Stampotique's many Words, Phrases, Letters, and Numbers.

I've finally gotten a chance to play along with this card featuring Word Collage (Amy Wilson-Wellenstein) and the Fairy Queen from Peace and Love with Words on the Side.

Here it is! It's rather bright, but I'm trying very hard to get out of my usual blue, purple color palette.

The Word Collage was stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine ink (Imagine Crafts) on 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock (Strathmore) and heat embossed with sparkly Galaxy Black embossing powder (Sparkle and Sprinkle). The cardstock was spritzed with water and several colors of Brusho Crystal Colours (Colourcraft) were sprinkled onto the water and misted with water to make the powders move and spread. This process was repeated until I was happy with the color coverage, then the piece was heat set. When it was totally dry, I scored lines around the edges to facilitate tearing, then tore the cardstock, and tattered the edges with a Distress Tool (Tonic Studios).

The Fairy Queen was stamped onto the excess Brusho-colored cardstock with Jet Black Archival ink (Ranger), onto Copic-friendly cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Imagine Crafts), and onto white glitter paper (American Crafts) with Palette Noir Hybrid ink (Stewart Superior). The Fairy Queen's body was fussy-cut from the Brusho-colored cardstock, her head was fussy-cut from the Copic-friendly cardstock, and her wings were cut from the glitter paper.

Distress Markers (Ranger) were used to color the leaves and the color on the Fairy Queen's dress. Copic markers were used to color head, then the crown was enhanced with several layers of Clear Gelly Glaze pen (Sakura). A Black Spica Glitter pen (Copic) was used to go over the word "love" in the Fairy Queen's hair and to add a beauty mark to her face. A black Sharpie pen was used to trace the detail on her wings. All fussy-cut colored parts were edged with a Black Pitt Artist pen (Faber Castell).

A variety of red shades of Brusho Crystal Colours were sprinkled onto a damp scrap of 140 lb. Mixed Media cardstock, misted with more water, then heat set. An old Primitive Heart punch was used to punch the red cardstock, which was then edged with a Black Pitt Artist pen.

The word panel was matted with black metallic cardstock, then adhered to a sheet from the Vintage Double Dot 6x6 patterned paper pad (Bo-Bunny). The multiple parts of the Fairy Queen were adhered over the Word Collage matted panel, which was then adhered to an A2 card.

Thanks for visiting today!
