Rainbow Fairy.

Good evening All,

Hope you are all well,  if not here's a   ((( hug)))    for those of you who may need one for whatever reason.   What a beautiful day it has been here today,   blue skies and sunshine, temperature still a tad on the low side but mustn't complain , at least the sun was out and it wasn't raining lol!     I would like to welcome my newest follower Sheila, thanks so much for following and I hope you enjoy your visits.

Some 'happy post' arrived for me today from Imagination Crafts. so housework all done,   I spent some time in my craft room this afternoon, great new products  to play with.   Imagination have another show at the end of this month on the Hochanda TV Channel, so better get cracking with my samples  lol!!   Will let you know the date and time, nearer the show.

Onto tonight's card,  I have made this using Imagination Craft's gorgeous 'star touch fairy' stencil and a few other products, as most of you now know, fairies are one of my favourite subjects lol   and I love their fairy stencils.

Fold the ready creased white card down the centre crease line, making a 7"x7" base card.   Matt a piece of black card onto the base card, leaving a quarter inch border of the white showing.   Take a piece of white linen card, cut slightly smaller than the black, with more black showing at the top and bottom, than at the sides but do not matt onto the base card yet.

Add some cheap shaving foam to your square plastic container  and spray the Mixed Media Inks onto the it.   Move the colours around, using a cocktail stick.   Lay your white card down onto it and press gently for a few seconds, then lift off the card.

Remove the  excess shaving foam with a metal spatula and you are left with a beautiful coloured pattern (and  a card that also smells nice lol!!).

Lay the star touch fairy stencil onto this coloured card and spread the gold shine Sparkle Medium over the star only.  
Next spread the black stars Sparkle Medium over the fairy, using a metal spatula.   Remove the stencil and leave the image to dry..   Matt this onto the base card.

Add five tiny black star gems to the top left of the card and three round black gems to the bottom right of the card.

Well that's this card finished, hope you like it.   I'll be back again in a few  days time.   Enjoy the rest of your week, stay safe and be happy!

                                                                  Love and rainbows,

                                                                   Hugs   Jennifer xx.
