Aries Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #165)


Hi everyone! :o)


It's time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog

Our theme for this fortnight is #165, Karten mit Tieren / Cards with Animals.

This time our lucky winner will win this ....(will be updated)


Here is my take on the challenge:  one layer, watercolor, Aries Card.


My card is a 2nd CASE of my Aquarius Card. You can find 1st CASE here. :o) I went with same design, layout, background color... Only differences are images and colors I used to color them. :o)

I love this design, so there will be more of CASEs of it... until I complete whole Zodiac circle. :o)

I used an adorable Aries stamp from Mama Elephant 'Cosmic Stars' stamp set. Love this set so much!! All those tiny Zodiac signs... SUPER CUTENESS OVERLOAD!! :o)

For a card base I used Canson XL Mixed Media Paper.

stamped the image directly on the card base and colored it with Distress Ink Hickory Smoke in watercolor technique. I also watercolored a background with Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch, my favorite Distress Ink color. :o)

Then I stamped one more image on a post-it paper and fussy cut it out. I made a mask to cover and protect the image, as my next step was splattering the background. I splattered it with water, Distress Ink Blueprint Sketch and white acrylic paint.

After drying, I highlighted some white acrylic splatters with white gel pen and drew more white dots. As a finishing touch I coated Aries's horns and hoofs with Clear Wink of Stella. Shimmery!!! :o)

    Hand Lettering #6: Happy Birthday Sentiment, Cursive Style (Digital Freebie)

    Hello everyone!!! :o)

    Today I want to share with you another hand lettering project that I made during my personal challenge, Celebrating 30 Days of Pisces. It's a sentiment 'happy birthday' written in a cursive handwriting style.

    I wrote the sentiment numerous times on mixed media paper scraps (not all shown on a photo below), using a dip pen nib and black drawing ink.

    The one I liked most, I scanned and transferred it to a digital format, which I decided to share here as a freebie. :o)


    Feel free to download the sentiment and use it on your handmade projects. Please be respectful to my artwork and read an Angel Policy and Terms of Use. :o)

    I would love to see your creations using my digital sentiment, so feel free to add links in comment section so I could visit you. :o)

    Thank you for stopping by and your kind feedback. Enjoy and smile! :o)
