Fairy Card 2

Following soon after making yesterday's card, I tried the same design again.  This time, instead of doing the background first, I stamped and coloured the image.  I then made a mask of it and covered my image, allowing me to stamp leaves and sponge ink over the background without interfering with my fairy.  I also masked where I wanted the sentiment, though I don't think I'd do that again, as having the background stop solidly around the words looks kind of odd.

Again, I used a clear glitter pen to make the wings shine.

I like that card. No, it doesn't look odd having the background stop at the words. It would look ok the other way too, tho.

The background at the edges of this card isn't as heavy as it is on the other one- esp. the blue at the top of the other card. both look nice tho. fairies isn't my thing.

I like the ferns in the background. And I like having the white space for the sentiment. It sets it off a little. Very pretty! You're very artistic. :)
