Wee folk

April - already?  where is this year going?  It's all flying by a bit too fast for me  I even saw someone had posted a C card on facebook the other day - nooooooooo I want some Summer first.
This month the theme for this month is Wee Folk - how fab I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with - the design team have done some stunners - O I do love all the wee folk - they are so useful  So here is my offering for this month

I tried to create a eerie glow - that's probably not the right word but I know what I mean lol

Anyway I started with my small gelli plate and added squeezed lemonade just in one spot, brayered it out then removed a lot with crumpled paper to leave  a sort of circle then I took a print,
Next I added some dusty concorde and seedless preserve in layers putting down the colour and removing it with crumpled paper each time.  I then created hills on my print with torn paper and my Clarity brushes.

This is my second attempt - the first one I sprayed with stick n spray from a distance and added glitter but I didn't like the result it was too much so this time I made up some gold mica spray with water and gold perfect pearls and sprayed cling film which I then laid on the card, scrunched it up and left it to dry.   You can't really see it on the photos - the top one probably shows it best but I did like the result I got with it.

I then set to with  the fairy sets but I used the tree branch from the bird table garden set
I used some of the stamps from the wee folk fairies and some from the wee folk elves

I stamped everything in black archival but I also embossed the fairies and elf  so in real life they are shiny and blacker so they stand out more.  I just had to add the magical from the word chains - these are invaluable too!  I finished off by adding a few highlights with a white pen.
