The Night Sky and a little Faerie Magic

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Phew!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have to say that the shopping got done just in time this morning, we just got back in the door when the heavens opened, it came down that fast that the road flooded within minutes, followed by the thunder and lighting. Although it was nice to sit and play in the Beach Hut and create, knowing I was warm and dry.

So what have I been playing with? I have sort of found some new images that I adore and have already created one card using them, well a short while ago The Emerald Faerie Garden Shop released another oh so fabulous image that I just had to have a play with it.  She is called Isabella and can be purchased here as a digi.  I also used some of the sentiments this one is from the Faerie Drop Sentiments digi set.  Do pop and take a peek in the shop there are some gorgeous images and so much more, a real treat :)


I have been playing with my graphics package so I have merged three images into one and erased some areas to meet my requirements, love doing this, it means I get exactly what I want at the size I want.  Now I did print this one out twice, so I could airbrush some background.

A couple of nights ago, Matt and I were watching the sky whilst grabbing some fresh air with our coffee's.  The sky was pale blue, but with the most amazing pink clouds, it was oh so pretty and I just had to try airbrush the vision and it just seemed to fit this image perfectly.

so with out further a do and more of my awful waffling here is what I created. 
This is an 8" Square or as I like to call it a Grand card.  The base layer and contrast colour is black.  The top papers are from the Papermania Capsule Mono collection the pink one.  I have used the MS heart edge punch to create a base for some lovely frilly lace from Grimsby Crafts and then added the black ribbon and created another double bow on my bow maker to add to the centre.  The pearls are from the Hobby House, although you will not find them in these colours, as these have been air brushed using BG01.  The flowers are all Wild Orchid and all of these were purchased in white and have been airbrushed with V01.  The leaves are nestie dies.  The image plate circle has been presented on a Marianne die and the circle itself is the smaller of the grand nestie circles.  All paper edges have been distressed with scissors and then diamond stickles added.  Stickles has also been added to the flowers, well it is a magical scene so needed it.

I hope you can see the air brushed blue and pink sky which, in real life, looks so pretty, will definitely be doing this again.
