Magic - Just Magic

This card was a labor of love... and much more complicated than it looks.

I started by stamping the fairy and then using a copier to make the image bigger. Than I attached the copy to a piece of black cardstock with temporary adhesive. I used my craft knife to cut out the stamp image sillouette. (I have done titles on scrapbook pages this way for years). I misted it with some glitter spray for extra sparkle, then I put a piece of transparency behind it.

I couldn't find any patterned paper that was vibrant enough for the look I wanted. So I took some glossy cardstock and swiped it with alcohol inks in three different colors. This gave me amazing color! I added a shimmering material over the top of it, then also used that material for the bow.

I popped the stamped image up just a little bit to give it even more demension, added just a little tag with the sentiment. I added white dots from my gel pen for more pop, then lots of black mats and it was done... Told you it was more complicated than it looked! But I love the dramatic way it came out!

I would like to enter this card into these challenges...
