It's Inspiration Time over at STAMPlorations. This week my teamies and I are showcasing stamps by our very own Shirley under her label 'The Bee's Knees'.
I decided to work with the Faerie Door to create a postcard with wings. Here it is ...
It is a slightly grungy watercolour fairy, but, given that she is meant to be sent without envelope, I felt is was cool to go down that route. Just imagine what a postcard would look like having gone through all the handling and sorting. Fairies, even the fashionista ones, don't always have to be pretty pretty. What do you think?
Anyway apart from that, it was pretty straight forward:
- stamp and mask the fairy
- stamp the wings
- stamp and mask the coat hangers (Party Girl) and wings as you go along
- watercolour using inks (Melon Mambo, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip, Early Espresso, Tempting Turquoise)
- stamp the City sentiment from City Girl around the edge in Tempting Turquoise 2nd generation
- add distressing using ruler, kitchen roll and Early Espresso ink
- stamp sentiment
- add glitter eyeliner to the wings

And here she is after post proofing her with a coat of Mod Podge:
