Roni here...today I wanted to share my latest Fairy Hugs creation...

Raphael is such a regal looking beast don't you think? 
He's perfectly content to keep watch over his watery kingdom.

The first step to creating this card was drawing an oval on a white cardstock panel using a pencil. I then stamped the shells, coral and sea weed peg stamps around that oval using various colors of VersaMagic ink (chalk ink). I then diecut the shape from the panel and inked the edges and center of the oval.  

I wanted to give the illusion of swirling water in the center of the oval so I drew swirls with a fine tip liquid glue which I sprinkled Sky and Pixie Dust Fairy Powder on top. The two colors swirling together creates the feeling of movement.

I placed Raphael on my stamping platform. I then used Memento Dual Tip markers to color each area of the image stamping them one by one. For example I colored the shell using Coca and stamped, I then colored his belly using Cottage Ivy and stamped, his flippers were colored with 3 different shades of green then stamped, etc.  After the entire image was stamped I then colored him in again using the markers.  I added a bit of black and white using acrylic paint pens and then he was fussy cut. I added him to the panel using foam tape.

The blue mat was cut to size then inked with a small shell stencil.  This mat was affixed to a black card blank and the turtle panel was then mounted on the card.

I hope you have enjoyed this little tutorial featuring the very handsome Raphael.
Thanks for stopping by! See you next week.
