Inkadinkado flowers (and fairy)

I did this for the Inkadinkado contest. I wanted a really light, fresh spring feel as if I were lying down in the grass and looking up on the card and I think I got it.

I used Marvy le Plume pens direct to stamps and then I covered the stamping with Versamark pen and clear embossed them. So I could wipe away the ink on the layer. Though, I did go ahead and do this with all of the flowers for consistency.

I colored the sentiment stamp with the same green marker for consistency and I just wanted the hint that this was a clear spring day on went the shimmery chalks to give a hint of blue sky in the background.

I think this technique really suits this stamp set.

Ingredients

  • Card size - 4.25 x 5.5 in
  • Stamps - Inkadinkado
  • Cardstock - Bazill, Georgia Pacific
  • Ink - Marvy le Plume markers, Versamark
  • Color - Pebbles Inc chalks

I'm not going to bother with a separate blog for this fair card as she is pretty much my tester piece for the first fair card I did .

I liked this enough to use it but it made me to decide to not outline the other card's fairy as darkly.

Ingredients

  • Card size 4.25 x 5.5 in
  • Cardstock - Bazzill, Georgia Pacific
  • Color -as listed in previous fairy card
  • Threading Water punch, Nestabilities
