I'm so excited and very honoured to be participating in this awesome release at Little Miss Muffet Stamps!! These new Fearless Fairy Tales stamps are amazing. I LOVE colouring fairy tales images, and I love them even more when they're just a little edgy ;) It's such a privilege to be playing along with this very talented group of colourists. Their work always inspires me and leaves me in awe of their skills. You're in for quite the treat today as you visit their blogs to see what they've created with the Fearless Fairy Tales.
My card today features Rapunzel from the Fearless Fairy Tales. It's hard to choose a favourite from this collection, as they are all incredible images...which is why you will likely want each stamp. ;) I love all the details in this image: the folds in the fabric, the intricate stonework of the tower, those gnarly hands of the witch and of course that hair!! I used some old papers from a DCWV stack and distressed them quite heavily with my scissors followed by Walnut Stain Distress Ink. The birdcage is from Dies by SCACD and the flourishes are an MFT die that I cut up and added in small bits. I added a few Prima flowers centred with a pearl. I'm not sure where I picked up that metal filigree flower...I added a bit of ink with my Copics to antique it as it was way too shiny and new looking for my taste. ;) Rapunzel was coloured with Copic markers. After finishing with the markers, I added a touch of white coloured pencil to the dress. I also added some additional shading with a black Conte Crayon applied with a paper blending tortillon.
