First Communion Boy Easel Card (Fairy Tale Challenge #123)

Happy Friday everyone :-D

It´s time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

The theme for this fortnight is #123, Jungs + Männer / Boys + Men.

This time our lucky winner will win a fab little prize again. It's a set of flower buttons to embellish your projects. 

For this challenge I made this First Communion Boy Easel Card, for my cousin's Marko First Communion.

I used lovely Mo's Manning digital stamp 'First Communion Boy s' digital image. I printed the image on a white paper (160 grams), colored it with colored pencils and  blended colors with baby oil.

Then I made an easel card base and decorated it with blue origami paper, blue gingham paper, gauze, acrylic paste, banner sticker, butterflies and roses.

White butterflies are made using butterfly stencil, structure paste and palette knife. I made the stencil from cardstock scraps and butterfly paper puncher.

Card dimensions are 139 mm x 139 mm (5 1/2" x 5 1/2").

Blending methods using baby oil:

  2. WOW impressive blending technique Milka! I don't work much with colored pencil. First time I heard you can blend using baby oil. Do you wet the cotton tip with baby oil or do you use a certain applicator for effectiveness? Love to tried it out sometimes. Thanks for sharing your beautiful card and process with us at Craft Your Passion. Have a lovely weekend Milka. - Christina Hor (GDT)
