Happily Ever After

Good morning everyone,

It's a bit rainy here at the moment, but it is due to cheer up later, I am reliably informed!  I have been busy prepping cards for next Saturday's Claritystampers East workshop., I will blog those cards next week after the workshop.  Meanwhile, here is one of the cards I did for the last TV show.
I have used the lovely Happily Ever After remountable stamp set which includes the Fairytale Castle and all the little flags.  This is a large stamp, so they all come on a mega mount.

I started with a background made by squishing Distress or Adirindack inks on a glass mat, then spritzing with water and picking up the ink on the card.
Once that was dry, I stamped the castle and flags in place and coloured it in with Spectrum Noir pencils Keeping the colours to pinks and blues.
I masked the castle and added some green hills and a path.
I used a fine black pen to emphasise the top of the hills and the path, then stamped the trees and the words in place.

It has been suggested that this castle would look good done in different colours to make a spooky Halloween card........

Thanks very much for visiting,
Hope you have a great Sunday
