I remembered this morning that I have an airbrush! Dur! So I redid the background ~ I like it much better. Hopefully you do too. :)
Here is the original.....
This card took all day to make... doesn't look like it should have does it? I saw this really cool techinque on Michelle Zindorf's blog. She used a brayer to make the different colors of the scene. Cool I thought, now I just have to find my brayer. Keep in mind that we have just moved (again) and I haven't unloaded or organized all of my scrap stuff. About an hour later I found the brayer! Woohoo!! Dang it... where are my ink pads? That was the question of the day ~ a question that still hasn't been answered. At least I knew where my little dewdrop pads were so I could at least attempt the technique. But wait... where did my sponges go? Apparently they are in cahoots with the ink pads... so I just took my dewdrop pads directly to the paper . I really love this card in person, the colors aren't so harsh and it looks sorta magical. Sorry I couldn't get a the picture to reflect that. :( Oh well! :)
The fabulous image ( Flower Fairy) is from Stitchy Bear Stamps.
The colors were inspired by the challenge picture at Paper Sundaes ~ even if you aren't up for a challenge you should check the picture out anyway. It is gorgeous!
I also made this card with the Springtime challenge over at Digital Tuesday Challenge in mind.
Hope you have a wonderful week! Smiles ~ Brandi
