Icicle Fairy


This week for Midnight Madness I got to use a Priscilla Styles Store image with the gorgeous papers from our sponsor Paper Temptress.  You might be able to tell that I went Spellbinders crazzzzzy with this one. So much FUN with these amazing papers.

I used:
  1. Sky Blue Glossy for the background which I embossed with a snowflake motif, then inked the raised portion with a sponge daubbed in Timber Brown Staz-on. (Close up below.)
  2. Cappucino Text Only: Have to say this is one of my favorites!  I die cut first and then went to town with a Sepia Copic.  I left the Spellbinders die in place and then used it as a stencil for the middle rectangle.  On the upper and lower rectangles I carefully colored the debossed edge to make the shape pop from the page a bit.
  3. Emerald (Stardreams em): This paper is a deliciously divine metalic cardstock!
  4. Ice Jade Vellum: Again die cut and embossed.  The green is so subtle it looks great with all different backgrounds.
  5. Ice Pearl Glossy: For perfect snowflakes... this paper is AWESOME!  I Copic colored using my Spellbinders die as a stencil.

Above is a look at all the different layers and embossing I did.  And below is a close-up of Priscilla's beautiful Fairy image.  I covered sweet flowers on her dress so she would fit with my snow theme.  I added Mica flakes to her wand and wings and pearl puffy paint to her hair.


I had a total blast with this card!
