Fairy Flowers

Hello and Welcome
Meet Fairy Flowers....another super fun stencil from A Colorful Life Designs.
This one is another new release and makes for a very cheerful card.

So here's what I did to create my card.
  • I first decided how I wanted to add the flowers using the Fairy Flowers to my white card front panel.  Using some Peeled Paint Distress Oxide ink, I stenciled just the stems of the flowers.
  • Using another piece of white cardstock, I stenciled the flowers using some Salty Ocean, Peacock Feathers and a hint of Blueprint Sketch Distress Oxide ink.  I added some Black Soot just to the centers of the flowers.
  • I fussy cut out the flowers and set them aside so I could finish working on the main panel with the stems.  
  • I stamped the sentiment from High Hopes into the corner of the panel.
  • Using the Simple Grid stencil, I added some random bits of inking by lightly adding some Peacock Feathers.  It really helped to add interest to the background.
  • Next, I splattered with my black Posca pen and let dry.
  • To help give the flowers more interest, I added some black dots around the flower center with my Posca pen.
  • Time to assemble....I glued the panel onto a piece of navy cardstock, then onto a heavy white card base.
  • I pop dotted the fussy cut flower heads over the stems,

Here are the stencils I used:
