Flower fairy Valentine's Card

Wednesday, February 3, 2010

I just got this stamp and I love it. I thought it would make a pretty Valentine's Day card because of the lovely roses in it. I used black archive ink to stamp the flower fairy onto white card and let it dry. (I tried it on watercolor paper but the paper absorbed the ink more and the outlines looked a little too dark.) I colored in the stamp with watercolor paints. (I used a copy of the original Rose Fairy from the Flower Fairies book as a reference for color.) At the bottom of the card I added some peachy pink grosgrain ribbon picking up the color of the roses. I glued some quilled closed coils and some half pearls onto the ribbon. I finished the card with a tag, stamped with a lifetime of love in true red, attached with some picot ribbon and I added a pearl bead with see through thread to the end. Didn't turn out too bad! Inca Stamp Rose Fairy, Studio G Clear Stamps a lifetime of love
