Enchanted Birthday!

These little Third Coast fairies are stopping by with a special magically enchanted happy birthday wish.

Enchanted Birthday!

To reverse the fairies with the flowers, the butterflies and the stardust corners, they are all stamped a second time on a mirror image stamp (a flat surface stamp), then on the cardstock.  The images were colored with Copic Markers, then holographic embossing powder was used to give an irredescent look to the wings, stardust corners and sentiment.

Below is a picture showing how extra layers of the wings, leaves and flower petals were popped up to give more dimension to the scene.

Third Coast stamps used:
Fairy Flower Picker VB-024-J
Stardust-Starry Corner CH-952-G
Butterfly Profile CK-045-EE
Grassy Mound MY-059-D

Other stamps used:
Custer's Last Stamp - May Your Birthday Be Filled With Enchantment
Rubber Stampede - Mirror Image Stamp

Hope you having a wonderful holiday weekend.

Susan, as usual, your card is ... magic !!! How did you manage to obtain such a neat image with a reverse stamp ? The holographic touch of 'bling-bling' is just perfect too :)

I love the colors and the flip/flopped fairie image! It looks so cool - I love the way you used my "fairie" stamp! You did such a great job with this.
