This was a really fun card to make with the stamps Leonie launched recently on Hochanda. I have created a little fantasy village for the wee magic folk. Before I start my step by step for this one, I want to let out a little secret. Leonie will be launching her Brand New and Exciting collection on Hochanda tomorrow night as a One Day Special, I hope you will join her at 8 pm. I will be sharing some of my samples tomorrow night at launch.
Back to today's card, To start with, I stamped the Angel wings and part of the 'Build a Tree Stamps onto copier paper and cut out to use as masks. I then took a piece of Sheena Stamping card from Crafters Companion and created the fantasy flowers using the wings, I also stamped the tree section which would become a new roof.
Next I masked off the tree section and lined up the stamp of the house I had chosen to use, it really is great to change the look especially if you want to create a project with a lot of the houses and want them to look completely different. I then stamped the little row of houses further back and off to the right, adding some distance. For the stalks, I used a strip stamp from Leonie's previous collection and added some leaves at the same time.
To mask off the images, I used the Pebeo Drawing gum to allow me to create the background. I just had to use Leonie's Glitter Pens to give a magical background to this. I used Lavender and Lilac blended from top to bottom. I also used the smallest amount of Iris to the very top and blended to give a colour fading from dark to light. I then removed the drawing gum and coloured the piece with a selection of my alcohol markers.
I stamped my sentiments onto some card and blended the same colours across them, I layered this onto some purple Centura Pearl cardstock from the Brights collection and then onto a lilac base leaving a 5 mm border on each. I then secured them with 3D glue gel which finished my card.
Thank you for joining me today, I hope you like the finished piece along with the step by step I have shared today. I hope you will stop by again tomorrow. Take care and Happy Crafting.xx
