You don’t need to be a fairy …

Daring Cardmakers wants us to be inspired by fairy tales and Stampootique challenges us to create a textured background. Here’s my entry:


I created this textured background with gesso and used wax crayons to apply colour. I rubbed silver ink on the raised parts of the gesso, but unfortunately that’s not very obvious on scan. I really like this Dutch sentiment: in English it reads ‘You don’t need to be a fairy to perform miracles’.

Stamps used

  • Girl+sentiment:  Inkerbell stamps
  • Circles: Stampers Anonymous
  • Stars: Lavinia
  • Twig: Inkadinkado
