Aja Celebrate's at Faery Ink

Eeep could I be more excited?! Amanda at Faery Ink recently had a DT call and I was chosen as one of the new Faerykins <3

I don't officially need to start sharing projects until next month, but after colouring most of the images for the Unicorn Masquerade Party, I just had to start sharing sooner!

I have made a twisted easel card using Aja - you can find her in the freebie album in the Faery Ink Facebook Community.  She comes with or without a mask.  For more magical images, check out the Etsy store. 

Products I have used to create my card:
  • Card blank
  • Coloured cardstock
  • Core'dinations Glittersilk card
  • X-Cut butterfly punch
  • Papermania gems
  • Sizzix dies - Flourish #9 & Decorative Swirl #4
  • Provocraft Vintage corner die
  • Spellbinders Grommet Tag die
  • Glitter brads
  • Make It Crafty chipboard sentiment
  • Crafter's Companion 'I Believe' embossing folder
  • ProMarkers - Umber, Walnut, Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan, Caramel, Black, Henna, Burnt Orange, Pumpkin, Amber, Apricot, Holly, Lush Green, Mint Green, Meadow Green, Soft Lime, Cool Grey 1-5
  • Gel pens
  • Spectrum Noir Sparkle pen - Black Onyx

The Glittersilk card is my favourite for making cards like this, it's got such a great texture and shine.  
I used stippling with gel pens to create sparkle on the dress and wings.  
My favourite way to colour a background is stippling as I don't need to create a smooth blend this way and it uses a lot less ink!  Normally I use the bullet end for this, but this time I used the chisel end. 

I really love the chipboard sentiments from Make It Crafty.  They give great dimension and you can colour them with pretty much anything
