Sugar Plum Fairy by Deborah


Carabelle Studios: Elf et Oiseau; Femme et Oiseau
Tim Holtz: Bitty Grunge (scratches)
Dina Wakley: All the Gals (word)
Memento Ink: Sweet Plum; Paris Dusk
Promarkers: Tea Green, Dusky Pink, Blush, Blossom, Orchid, Cool Grey 1, Ice Grey 2, Rose Pink, Blender

The last time I used this fairy (or elf, as Carabelle Studios would have it) was on a very colourful card with a stencilled gelli print background. This time I decided to experiment with colours I don't usually gravitate towards, at least not together.

It's quite simple to do. Simply stamp the fairy in Paris Dusk, then stamp the stars and triangle pattern in the same ink.

Colour her in with Promarkers (Memento is the best ink to use with Promarkers to avoid smudging and colour contamination).

Colour the background randomly using the same colours. I also used the Promarker blender pen but am not sure it did much, to be honest.

Stamp the scratches (Bitty Grunge must be one of the best stamp purchases I have ever made!) in Memento Sweet Plum to add some texture.

Back to Paris Dusk to stamp the word 'irresistible' (from the Dina Wakley set) a number of times.

Edge with Paris Dusk (pad direct to card).

You now and have small postcard or a topper for a card.



  1. A real stunner Deb and would never guess it was all Promarker coloured - a fabulous effect!

  2. I don't own any Promakers but you have shown how versatile they are as I never knew you could use them for backgrounds.
    I like your use of the other stamps to create a border around her.

  3. I love this Deb! The fairy is fab!!! xxx

  4. What a terrific image, and lovely colouring.
