Welcome to April's Neat and Tangled release week. We tease you with the new collection for a few days until it hits the store on Friday morning (April 19th.)
On day 1, we're showing off a set that I illustrated, called To The Stars. I've been wanting to do a fairy set for a long time, but I've seen enough cute garden fairy sets to steer clear of that kind and go a more celestial route.
This set features 3 fairies, a few puffy clouds, a constellation and the cutest moon.
I perched the daintiest fairy atop the moon, and positioned a few clouds and constellations all around. Using the oval dies from the Card Front Designs die set, I created an aperture to house all of the focal images. I love that by nesting the oval dies together, I could create a thin frame. I love little finishing touches like that!
To color the clouds and the moon, I opted for light greys (Copic markers T0, T1) since I used a night-sky patterned paper. You guys, I think this is my last scrap of this paper. I have been hoarding it for so long! I wish I knew who made it and where I could get some more!
To get different sizes of constellations, I simply snipped off a star or 2. Easy peasy. In the stamp set, I also included a lone star and a tiny line image - you could create a whole backdrop of unique constellations!
I love the sentiment included in the set. Originally, I included the usual "love you to the stars" but my good friend Bethany suggested I go PAST the stars - so magical!
I hope you like this new set! Stayed tuned for a smaller, companion set that will debut tomorrow! Be sure to check out the NT blog this morning (click!).
