Fairy Kisses and Birthday Wishes -- Top pick at Sunday Stamps Challenge

*I'm so thrilled that Sunday Stamps Challenge has named me their Top Pick*

I enjoyed making that butterfly/star card so much that when I saw a challenge that was, again, a single layer card, I jumped at designing another one with the stars as templates and masks.  Obviously I wasn't finished with that idea yet.

This time I used two different sized stars as templates and masks.  On Whisper White cardstock, I stamped inside the star templates to get the fairy and the single mushroom.  I used sponge daubers outside the masked stamped images to create a background.  While the masks were still on, I sprayed the background with a layer of Smooch Vanilla Shimmer Spritz.

The fairy stamp set is one I've had for a while but haven't used.  This seemed like the perfect time to use it.  The details in the set were simply beautiful.  Colouring the details with my Blendabilities took quite a while but in the end, it was worth it.

I wanted more separation between the stars and the background and so I traced inside the templates with my Basic Black stampin marker to get a nice dark line around the stars.  Then I stamped the sentiment in black ink as well and finally, I also mounted the Whisper White onto a base cardstock of Basic Black.

A final touch of three stars punched from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper, topped with three star-shaped Coastal Cabana sequins, and then topped with rhinestones, finished off the card.
