Watercolouring Fairies with Aqua Painters

Fairy Celebration Stampin' Up

Another Fairy Celebration  project today.

This stamp set is Stampin' Up!'s first ever fairy stamp set, there is a clear-mount version (link above) and a wood-mount version available.

As I said in my earlier post of the 8th October, the fairies in this set remind me of the Flower Fairies of Cicely Mary Barker. My favourite Flower Fairy is probably the Poppy Fairy:
The Poppy Fairy, Flower Fairies, Cicely Mary Barker

I watercoloured the fairy using Stampin' Up!'s Aqua Painters and a selection of Classic Stampin' Pads. I'm sorry that the picture is not very clear - it's surprisingly dark now, I need to find a new place to take my photographs!

I think this stamp set is a must for any craft collection. The images are crisp and clear and easy to colour, even with a wet watercolouring pen (Aqua Painter). I recommend stamping in Archival Basic Black Ink and leaving the image to dry for a minute before watercolouring. Archival Basic Black is a permanent ink, making it the perfect choice for watercolour projects.

Please get in touch if you have any questions about this stamp set, or need help selecting the right craft products. I'll be back tomorrow with more stampy news.
