2RedBananas Sneek Peek - Flourish in Thought

For today's sneak peek of's new stamp sets (to be released on May 18th) I have used Jami Bova's stamp called "Flourish in Thought." It is a really beautiful stamp. That Jami is so talented...

The card base is purple CS with a block of K&Company's Brenda Walton paper on top.

There are so many techniques going on with this image I don't even know where to begin. I stamped the body on watercolor paper and colored it with watercolor pencils. The wings are stamped on a piece of K&Co DP with Versamark ink and covered with purple Perfect Pearls. I sprayed the whole piece of DP and the fairy's body with some Perfect Pearls mixed with water (which shows up much better in person), and added some Sakura Stardust ink and Shimmerz to her dress.

There rhinestones in the scallops are from KaiserCraft. I also stacked up three flowers and used a glittered brad in the center, then added it to the top of the image, along with some sheer ribbon tied in a bow.

I was definately playing around and experimenting when I made this card. Now I have a better idea of which effects I like the best.

Hope you'll stop by again this week, and go to 2RB's blog to see more peeks by our talented DT members:
