Fairy Happy Birthday - Avery Elle/Ellen Hutson Blog Hop (and a Sale!)


Good morning! Today some of the Ellen Hutson Design Ambassadors are hopping to celebrate the new Avery Elle Release (see below for hop and SALE details)!


I don't make fully-coloured scene cards like this very often, but I do enjoy it - especially when I can combine sets to create something so fun!

I combined the new Fairy Happy stamp set with 2 older sets - Rainbows and Banner Bits.

I created a colourful scene by placing the rainbow stamp on a panel of white cardstock in my MISTI. I then placed the 3 fairy stamps on top of the rainbow stamp, where I wanted them (I love how that one little fairy is sitting on the cloud!).

Then I picked up just the fairies with the MISTI door and stamped them with black Gina K Amalgam ink. I cut masks from full-back sticky notes and then stamped the rainbow over top.

I stamped some of the little hearts from Rainbows and the little magic fairy-dust stars from Fairy Happy.

I blended some Fiesta Blue ink around for the sky, using a Life-Changing blender brush.

Then came a lot of Copic colouring. After colouring the rainbow and the hearts, I decided to keep the fairies pretty neutral, including their hair!

I stamped the sentiment onto a white banner, and layered it onto a black banner , just slightly offset, to add some definition to the bottom of my scene.

To add sparkle I did 3 things:
  1. I sprayed Avery Elle Clear Shimmer Spray all over the panel (and the sentiment)
  2. I added Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen to the fairies' dresses
  3. I put Star Dust stickles on the wings, hearts and around the edge of the white sentiment banner.
