Splodgeaway "Fairy" Tale.........

Howdy all!!
Happy Weekend :-)

I had so much fun with my other Splodgeaway fantasy project this week that I am back with "Part Deux"

This time I have gone with a "fairy" tale theme. Hans Christian Anderson's The Snow Queen

 I have used a whole myriad of masks to get lots of layers again on this project. Initially using water over the alphabet border to create a mottle pattern. Then distress inks were used with the runes and pentacle from the Gothic Alter layout before I got the fabulous Tattered Angels Sprays out with Leaf the Lot for a subtle hint of shimmer.

After that I applied perfect medium and clear embossing powder through the square edged Brick mask, and then Gold sparkle embossing powder through the leaves on the fantasy Unicorn Stenskape. I also used one of my fave masks - one of the very first Splodge masks of Unicorns and Mermaids. 

The tag was topped off with "Honesty" from Sheena Douglas's lovely A little Bit Magic set - To give an ethereal feel she was embossed on tissue and then white washed from behind with acrylic paint for a semi-translucent look. To add still more depth I gently rubbed Yellow Diamond Treasure Gold over the clear embossing and on the edges before finishing off with the snowflakes and the title. 

Hope you have lots of crafty plans for the weekend??
I am busy working on some magazine stuff so whatever you have on have fun getting creative :-)
