The background is a monoprint done on the Gelli plate. I used a palette knife to paint a landscape on the 6×6 inch plate and took several prints from it, this one being the first. I stamped and embossed the fairy in black then added lots of foliage plants from the other fairy sets and Wild Meadow. I extended the ground under the fairy with black paint and coloured her wings with Wink of Stella pens.
Now as I mentioned, the Winter Fairies launched today and I’ve been playing with those too. Remember the ‘accident’ that I showed you in the last post?
Well I managed to rescue it and it’s my contribution to the Winter Fairy Inspirations leaflet. You can just see it peeking out on the far right in this picture:
I’ve also been making some ATCs and over the weekend I will be trading them on the Chocolate Baroque Facebook page. Here they are at the moment, but I’ll be jazzing them up a bit before they go up for trade (hint, if you’d like to be one of the four people receiving one of these, I’ll be looking to trade any ATC made with CB stamps).
Don’t forget to check over on the Design Team blog for new artwork featuring the gorgeous Winter Fairies.
