Midnight In The Fairy Garden by Fliss Goodwin


Hello! I have another of the fab new large shaped tags to share this week as being 7.5 inches across, they're just perfect to make scenes from Melina's gorgeous new shroom stamp designs and my tag has a fairy theme as fairies and toadstools seem a match made in heaven.

Step by Step

I made the background firstand sadly don't have process photos as this one was rather go with the flow! I gave the greyboard a coat of white gesso first to make sure my chosen paint colours would pop.

Then starting in the centre, I made a rough circular shape with mustard yellow multi surface paint. I followed this with magenta swirling around the outside of the yellow circle. I then painted the remainder of the tag with purple multi surface paint.

Once the paint was dry, I misted on some lilac lustre spray to add some lovely shimmer. I stamped some of Ingrid's lovely leaf sprigs from her Boho Vibes Set 2 stamp set using Archival jet black ink around all the edges, leaving a space at the bottom where I used the mushroom Dinky stencil to add some shrooms with Archival watering can ink.

I coloured in the leaves using a dark green marker then added a little shimmery detail by stamping on a tiny swirl with Brilliance pearlescent ice blue ink.

I stamped a variety of shroom images onto white smooth cartridge paper using Versafine onyx black ink and coloured them with markers. I cut the images out and glued them onto the background, adding some shading with a dark grey marker.

I painted a couple of greyboard fairies and some butterflies with black multi surface paint, adding glitter glue to the fairy wings. Once they were completely dry, I brushed 3D gloss gel over the top and glued them in place on my tag background.

As a finishing touch I tied a scrap of toning sari silk ribbon through the top.
