Sweet Wishes and Hugs &Kisses

Yes I'm back again. I have so many cards I want to make so let's get started.

I had already coloured my fairy from the Hero Art kit  (sorry it is sold out) this time in blues from the high number range B99 B24 B21 and lightest B41. Die cut and stuck on the edge of the card but made sure it would still fit in an envelope ok. The card base is blended Distress Oxides in blues and a little lilac in the centre.

I just kept moving my blending tool in an oval shape direction blending one colour into the next and left the centre with no colour till nearly finished so it would be brightest there.

I used this amazing stencil from Funky Fossil Designs on Etsy called "shooting Stars". I just held it in place and added some glitter paste. Once it was dry I added a few more stars so it continued around a bit more and finished off with a'sweet wishes' die cut from Penny Black.
If you have time go and check out Sarah's creations, these stencils are just perfect to work with.

This next card was super quick as I have been colouring pieces of acetate with Alcohol inks and just leaving aside for just this type of thing. I used a small piece and die cut with this sweet interlocked hearts die (mmm gone blank on who by so will have to come back to that). I left it all as one piece as it really looks pretty.
I die cut again from the front of the card so I could inset the coloured hearts by just adding a piece of tape inside the card. I then used some Nuvo and added the gold dots. After  I add my dots I tap my card onto the table, straight down not at an angle. This helps the dots round out and not be so peaked.

Of course then I thought of stamping my sentiment but didn't want to use the Misti and squish my dots so used a stamping block with the sentiment 'Hugs & Kisses' and decided grey would be nice. It is okay but a bit faint I think and probably would have been better if I had been able to stamp twice or in black but just too hard to do trying to eye ball it so left it alone. The card is soft and pretty and with that sentiment cal be for lots of different occasions.   

Ok thats it for today. Left it very late to post so will add challenges tomorrow. Thanks for coming to visit and I hope you come again soon.

xx Aileen

Great way to ink that fairy card to make the sentiment shine, Aileen. Adding the stars gives the card a magical look, and yes, Sarah's stencils are great. I think the sentiment looks fine with those vibrantly colored hearts.

Your fairy card is gorgeous Aileen! Love the blending and graduation of colours. The embossing paste stars add a wonderful design and texture. And, of course, your fairy is beautiful! Great colouring as always!

LOVE your faux stained glass card with the row of hearts. The alcohol inks on acetate really do give a translucent look of glass. The colours are bold and beautiful! Thanks for sharing with us at CAS Mix Up!
