Fairy Wishes

Framing is a quick technique which adds great dimension to any card design and is oh-so-easy (and fun) to do.

Fairy Wishes
Penny Black’s Fairy Sweet (illustrated by Mo Manning) was stamped in Onyx Black VersaFine on watercolor paper and heat embossed with clear powder.  The image was watercolored with Tombow Dual Brush Pens.  Tip/Hint: For extra glowing enchantment, the wings and dress also had a layer of USArtQuest Interference Gold Pigmented Mica Watercolor paint added to them.  

The white cardstock frame was die cut using Spellbinders Classic Squares.  The frame and die were run through the die cutting machine a second time with a rubber mat to create the embossed ridge.  Before layering, a Delicata Golden Glitz ink pad was run along the outside edges of the frame. 

An additional flower was stamped, trimmed and adhered to overlap the frame for a colorful embellishment.

These darling images can be used for so many occasions.  Tuck a few aside and, when needed, personalize the inside of the card.  For this design, the sentiment from Friendship was stamped in Pink Grapefruit VersaMagic on a banner edged in Delicata Golden Glitz ink.

Have a magical day,
