Fairy Orbs

Welcome to my blog!  I'm back with another challenge from Just Add Ink and this week we have a sketch by Narelle.  Rather than adding layers to my card, I decided to use stamps to mimic the elements in the sketch.



I used a NBUS set called Watercolor Frames for the central splatter and stamped that in Autumn Blaze ink by Altenew.  I then took three other Altenew inks and stamped the Fairy Orbs images in a diagonal pattern at the top left and bottom right of the panel.  The sentiment was stamped and cut out and added to the panel before it was adhered to a white card base using foam tape.  I finished the card with some black Nuvo Crystal Drops.



Thanks for visiting!  I hope you have time to check out the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team and also make a card using this sketch yourself.

Such a bold and vibrant design Karren! I love that you chose to use colour to create the layers of the sketch - it is so striking and beautifully balanced with the black and white details. I must add some Nuvo drops to my next order too :-) xx

Totally funky & very cool that you chose to use your images rather than layer according to the sketch. Love the bright burst of colour on crisp white. x
