King of the Castle

Hello from a very chilly Norfolk,

It has started snowing here now, not my favourite thing when you have to go out in the morning and defrost the car! 

Today's card is a nice warm one -
It is nice and easy.
I started by blending lots of Distress inks onto a card with a blending tool, putting plenty of ink on the page, then I lightly spritzed with water and blotted with a sheet of copy paper.
Once dry I added the top part of the Castle mask over the top part of the card (detack a bit first to stop it sticking)  then add lots of black ink to create the silhouette.  I stamped my favourite of the wee fairies in place with archival ink.  I painted his wings with water and blotted to remove some of the colour, then added some glitter.
I inked round the edges, and as a final touch, I did a little doodle pattern with a fine black pen.
Clarity products used:
Hope you all stay warm and dry,
Janet xx
