Fairyly Cool Blog Candy!

Hi there,
Thanks for popping in.

Decided to check out the Member’s Sale today,
and pick one of the stamps to blog.

Choices, choices, choices...
Stamps, Stencils, Groovi and other stuff too.
38 pages of it to be precise!


Settled on the tall, funky Fairy Tree House, which was so exquisitely drawn by Mel a while ago.
Very clever.

Stamped it on an inky paper scrap I had lying around.



It comes with a mask, too.
Also very clever.


Loaded one of our brushes with Tenacious Teal 
and lightly dusted it through the centre.


See how the house jumps out now?


Now we want to load the outside area of the mask.
Dust the paper with the tiniest amount of talcum powder with this mask. Makes it a lot easier to position when it glides across the paper.


Add a little Old Parchment ink with a make-up sponge


Add a little dimension by drawing in a drop shadow 
with  black and grey pencils.


Add a couple of the tiny miniature fairies from those super Outline Stamps I spoke about this week...

These ones:

The Toadstool Collection has all the fairies and whimsy hares.



Wrap around an A5 canvas, and seal with Mod Podge.
Done.


Very simple, but perfect for the girl who loves fairies and whimsy.


Join a Clarity Club today, 
and you too can access the Half-Price Sale.

How about some blog candy....
Suggest a title below for this artwork, and I will pick a random winner tomorrow. That winner will be sent the canvas 
and a £20 gift voucher!

Back to the garden.
Have a lovely evening wherever you are.

Love & hugs
Barb

  2. What a fantastic bit of art! The blue behind and the colouring on top really make the house stand out. I keep logging on to the sale and browsing through, not put in an order yet but the list is growing! I love that I can take my time safe in the knowledge that nothing sells out.
    My title would be:
    Fairy Penthouse.

  9. Beautiful Barbara the teal certainly made the fairy tree house stand proud.
    Thank you for doing the sale even though I can't really get anything this time loads I want but not got the pennies 😢
    I think the title for this masterpiece should either be ' the house that fairies built or ' this ole fairy house ' (shaking Stevens without the fairy lol)

  15. Hi Barbara, lovely artwork. Thank you for sharing. And the inking through tip, another one for my brain to store marked with a highlighter. And thank you for my next drop shadow instalment too. I think I'm starting to get there.... Hope you're enjoying your garden. Bit warmer up here today, still a cool wind though. And the sun came out to play, yay.

    My title attempt -
    Ta-da! Oh, wait a minute, we've forgot the stairs to the penthouse...

    Love Brenda xx

    Sometimes the smallest act of kindness can take up the biggest space in someone's heart.

    Hi everyone who reads and doesn't comment. Are you coming to say hi and leave Barbara some appreciation today?

  43. Hi Barbara
    I must go and have another look at the sale, I hadn't realised this one was in the sale and it's one ibpve been admiring for ages. I've had a peep but haven't ordered yet. Love they way you have put the colour through the middle and added the drop shadow, it really does pop doesn't it. My title would be 'fairies on their way home after a busy day at work'. Enjoy your evening in the garden, it's been another wonderful day hasn't it.
    Love Diane xxx

  45. I have used this stamp as a base for house-warming thank you cards. Have a trial card salted away somewhere so must look it out. My title idea - is a mish mash of Dutch and English - 'Welcome to our herenhuis ' i.e. Hare in House. (Herenhuis translates as a mansion or villa.) ;~}

  53. I thought Fae Towers - similar already been suggested! This is one stamp I have my eye on in the sale! So hard to choose as so many gorgeous options - although a little startled to find how many I already have - lucky me x

    ReplyDelete
  54. Just gorgeous, has to be A Midsummer Nights Dream.
    Barbara I must tell you this, when Glastonbury finishes there's loads of tents and camping gear left behind and some firefighters go up from Cornwall and collect as much as they can and bring it back, clean it and auction it for charity. Great recycling. I think they have done this for a few years. xx

  60. This is gorgeous artwork Barbara and love the colours of the paper and the complementary colours you have added. My title would be 'On the Fairy Wishlist'. x

    ReplyDelete
  61. Love these "magical" stamps! I'm thinking- 'Dusk in my garden'? or 'My Garden Dream'.
    Come to my garden when the day is at its end, when purple shadows lengthen and the stars begin to twinkle. Step carefully where you walk, lay down upon the grass and make your self so small. Shhh, be very quiet, oh so still. Moonlight glow now turns my garden into a magical place. Quiet. Look! Look there! among the mushrooms, and over there-- by the base of the willow where in day light I only see twisted branches, now tiny lights are coming on. Did you hear that? the soft flutter of little wings? A tinkling of a laugh? Gossamer wings glittering in moonbeams. Whispers of fairy voices near and over there. Still, be very still the magic of a fairy world in my moonlit garden has begun.

    ReplyDelete
  62. My suggestion would be "Fairydust Towers". x

    ReplyDelete
  63. Love the funky house, and would call it "Hey mum, look what the fairies are doing to our house!" Had a nice time this week reorganising my clarity stash and seeing if I had enough fairy pennies to add to it. Might just manage the gorgeous cockerel stamps....maybe a bit more! xx

    ReplyDelete
  64. Great stamp. I love the art work. I would call it Buzzing the twilight tower.

    ReplyDelete
  65. I have this stamp and love it. This would be my dream home with my studio at the top,where the fairies could flitter in and out of open windows chattering away to me.

    My title is my Dream Home.
