Fifth Avenue Magic – Tutorial #346 and Blog Candy

dsc04448.JPG

Happy Friday!  I’m home this weekend.   With all of the traveling I’ve been doing it seems a little strange.  🙂

After many inquiries, I want to give you an update regarding my husband Russ’ health.  He is doing so much better.  Although he still has an irregular heart beat, his heart rate is where it should be.  He is being treated with medication for now to try to straighten things out.   Thank you again for keeping him in your thoughts.  I just think his heart beats faster when I’m around, lol.  🙂

Now back to business.   Today’s tutorial is quite girly with all the pink and I have been dying to use the Little Bit of Magic set.  So here is my little scene with it.

Before we get started on the tutorial I want to announce today’s blog candy.  Check it out, it is a brand new Stampin’ Up! Clear Mount Hostess set “It’s the Thought.

On a 3″ x 5.5″ piece of Whisper White stamped the fairy by first loading my stamp with Versamark and then with Basic Black ink before stamping it.

Heat embossed the image using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.

Masked over the fairy with a 2.25″ card stock circle.  I cut the circle using my Circle Scissors.

Holding the mask in place, sponged Marina Mist ink on the card stock.

Sponged Not Quite Navy ink on, not covering the Marina Mist ink entirely.

On a separate piece of Whisper White card stock, stamped the rose by first loading my stamp with Versamark and then Melon Mambo ink before stamping it.  Heat embossed the rose using clear embossing powder and a heat gun.
