2021 STASH BASH #5 - Rainbow Sprinkle Fairy Card

 Hello, Crafty Peoples!

Today I share a project that had been floating around in my head for a few days!   When I pull out an unused stamp, my main fear is that my design will not be interesting.   

This stamp set was purchased over eight years ago. I do not color well.  Most of my "image" stamps are left to languish in my stash.  I have hundreds, maybe thousands if I count all my Itty Bitty™ Unity Stamps that have yet to be inked!

Rainbow Sprinkle
I created this card for "Turner Syndrome Awareness" Month
On The Inside
The rainbows were cut from a sticker pad. They are gold trimmed, but that did not photograph well 

A Little Bit of the Process
The project began as a simple ink blending practice sheet, and although this sheet had a few muddy areas, it worked!
I stamped the background images onto a blank piece of cardstock before stamping them onto my card face panel. 

I used alcohol brush markers to add color to some of the stamped images.  I also added an outline around the butterfly image. I colored it and painted it with a thin coat of glitter glue.  
In this close-up shot, you can see the "ghost" stamping.   I stamped the sentiment and used my craft knife to cut it into single words. The yellow and green circles were made using a bottle cap.

I wanted to create a bit of a 3D look, so I added a third mushroom to the focal grouping. 
I glued the third mushroom down and added foam tape to the center back of the main image.  I also added foam tape to the center of the two smaller mushrooms.  I glued the edges of the grass and the small mushrooms.  The effect is awesome!

Thanks For Stopping By!
