Hello everyone!

It’s Kathrin here today and for my first post today I am sharing a card that gives a glimpse into a special world…. Have you ever wondere what it looks like in fairy land? Well, I’ll show you a small piece of it with today’s card.

Let’s start with the top layer. I’ve had my Distress Inks for a few years now, but besides to ink up some edges I hardly used them until recently. Since a few weeks that changes and now I use them nearly daily. I just love the backgrounds you can make with those combined with stencils. Here I created a cloud background with Distress Ink Chipped Sapphire and cut an oval window from it. The background is matted with black cardstock. I also cut another slightly smaller oval from it to frame the window and bring out the brighter colors inside the window better.

To the bottom of the window I’ve added a banner with one of the sayings from the English Christmas Lyrics stamp set. I only inked up the “magical” and left the other words from the christmas text uninked. So I was able to use the magical for a completly different occasion.

I’ve added some white and orange iridescent sequins to the clouds.

And here you get the promised glimpse into the world of fairies, elves and other magical creatures. Did you know the sky is rainbow colored there? 😉

Again I’ve used a combination of stencil and Distress Inks to create the sky. I went with Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Dusty Concorde, Seedless Preserves and Picked Raspberry here. Then I used a different stencil and white ink to add bubbles to the sky. I just love the idea of how there are bubbles flying around everywhere, with the fairies playing in between.

Also this cute fairy is having a great time, playing with a little birdie. The fairy and the grass were heat embossed using black embossing powder. I let the background dry really well, but some of the fine powder stuck to it. I wasn’t happy about it first but the longer I looked at it, the more I thought the light black mist is adding some more interest.

Hope to see you all again later today for my second creation.

Hugs, Kathrin
