Inkspirational Challenge - Prompt Word - Glamour

Happy Saturday everyone!  It's time again for another Inkspirational challenge.  This time it's a word prompt.  And that word is, Glamour.

Now, I had a bit of a problem with this word.  I just didn't have any stamps that fit any of the ideas I had.  Then I had a lightbulb moment and approached it from a different angle.  Glamour, when thought about in terms of magic and fairies, is a spell that makes you appear as something else.  Well, I thought I have several fairy images so I went with that.  :-) Check it out.....

I've had this stamp forever.  It's the first one I ever bought when I first got sucked into this amazing world of stamping.  It's by Stamps Happen Inc. and I'm pretty sure they don't exist anymore.  But it's  a lovely stamp and I bring it out every so often to play.  So, first I stamped my fairy in black Memento ink and then made a mask for it and covered it up.  Then I stamped my tapestry background (Stampabilities) using Mustard Seed Distress ink that I faded the intensity of here and there.  I stamped it a few times (sometime spritzing with water) without reinking it.  Then I removed the mask and coloured in my fairy with my Spectrum Noir markers.  I added a bit of sparkle to the dress and wings with my Wink of Stella pen.  You can see it better in the detail picture.  I coloured in the star of the wand with a gold Pentel marker.  Lastly, I stamped the sentiment (STAMPlorations) in black.

I hope you'll take a trip on over to the Ink blog and check out the other fantastic cards by the rest of the team.  They knocked it out of the park, once again.  :-)

Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by!
