Frost Fairies

On the Dragons Lair Designs Facebook page there is a great Head to Head Challenge. For this challenge every one uses the same set to work with. This time round the set is “Snow Dayz” Mini kit. To join this challenge you do need to buy the kit, I’ve put the link in the list of materials below.

Materials used:SAM_2583(watermarked)
Dragons Lair Designs – Snow Days Mini Kit
white printer card
white 15cm square card blank folded to make an easel card blank
acrylic silhouette fairy stamps
acrylic winter trees stamp
black archival ink
white paint pen
iridescent glitter
silver peel-off greeting sticker

Method:
Use elements from the kit to create a background picture for the stamping and the stopper for the easel card. I used a couple of the papers and the frame. When the background and stopper elements are assembled print them out and construct the card blank with them.

Use the archival black ink to stamp out the design you want onto the papers. I used fairies and winter trees to build up a frosty scene.

Use the white paint pen and the glitter to highlight the frost on the trees and snow. I have got glitter trails coming down from one of the fairies as I wanted to convey the idea that the fairy was putting down the frost below.

Finally assemble the stopper for the easel card and put all the elements together on the card blank.


Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, have recently retired from being a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, both married and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
