Fairy Nice!

Posted by Micah at 11:13 AM
My middle child, Kerowyn, is really into anything pink, sparkly or relating to princesses or fairies. For her birthday this year (last month) we had a Fairy Princess Tea Party after visiting CrocTalk to pet some live reptiles. Interesting combination hey?

Well, in honor of the Fairy portion of her party, I made a card. I used a stamp from Paper Pretties, and the Sophia paper pack from Close to My Heart. To get the real sharp color I first stamped in a light color (in this case Bamboo) then colored with the CTMH markers that match the Sophia paper, and then stamped again in a darker color (Grey Wool).

To make sure the image was exact I used my travel scrap tote (basically a wooden box) and nudged the paper and stamping block right into the one corner and did the same when I stamped the second time. Sometimes the paper slipped a tiny bit so there was some trial and error, but in the end it was super easy to -exactly- stamp over the image with the darker color.

Thanks for checking in!
