Well, today I'm introducing my very first fairy stamp. Meet Capri. Capri is one of the Enchanted Hollow collection that I recently purchased at Heather's Stamping Haven in Ottawa, Ontario. Heather has created a few other fairies in the Enchanted Hollow collection as well as a unicorn that is next on my shopping list.
This is my first card using Capri and I thought the image went perfectly with a challenge to use double embossing. The idea of double embossing is to use two different embossing folders and run them through your Cuttlebug, or whatever machineor method you use to emboss, and get a double pattern. For the background of this card I used the Cuttlebug swiss dots folder first and lightly sanded the surface to make the dots "pop". Then I used the swirls embossing folder on top to emulate the swirls on Capri's dress.
I also used a Nestibilities fancy flourish die for the swirl in pink and purple. The image was watercolored with Tombow markers and then I added a lot of stickles and crystals to give it more sparkle.
As is my usual problem, my photography doesn't pick up the mystical shimmery and glittery effect I've tried to achieve. Trust me. This card does sparkle with fairy dust.
