Easy Stenciled Background For a Handmade Card: Fairy Wings and Happy Wishes

The first seven days of the month are always the busiest here on the blog and I am back already with another new card :0) 

It's the first Sunday, so today is the start of a new challenge at Stamping Sensations, a nice and easy theme of  "Anything Goes with the Option of Wings".  We have some beautiful Uniko stamps to give away this time along with our  monthly Top Picks selection and a chance to be a guest designer for a future challenge!


It was a perfect opportunity to ink up one of my Lavinia fairies for this month's card. 


I started with a stencil by Stampers Anonymous and Tumbled Glass and Picked Raspberry Distress inks which I blended using these blending brushes. Next I stamped the fairy Grace and hare Pipin using Versafine Onyx ink. After making sure the black ink was completely dry, I took two different sized die cut circles and used as masks, then inked inked around the circle masks using Picked Raspberry ink. 

If you are new to larger silhouette stamps like the Lavinia fairies, I do recommend using a stamp positioner (for example the Mini Misti) so you can repeat stamp to get a solid image. 

Products Used:



I used a white Posca pen and some diluted Wilted Violet ink to add ink spatter onto the card. The sentiment is from the Penny Black set Happy Wishes, stamped using Versafine Onyx ink.

The script on the background was done with an old stamp from Just for Fun Rubberstamps (no longer in business).  


I also used:



My design was inspired by a Lavinia card I had seen on Pinterest, which led me to a YouTube video by Eileen Godwin. She used different Lavinia stamps and stencils but the design is similar. And I had so much fun creating this card!

Thanks so much for visiting! Hope to see you joining us at Stamping Sensations! The challenge does run until the end of the month so plenty of time to play along!
