Fairy Hugs Make A Wish Upcycled Stamping Block

 Today I wanted to share my latest Fairy Hugs creation...

My wish for you in 2021 is health, happiness and peace.

I un-mount all of my rubber stamps to save room and I have all of these wonderful wood blocks left over. I like to save the larger blocks for art and that's what I've got for you today. A former rubber stamp block upcycled into art!

To create this piece I started off by cutting out various definitions from multiple dictionaries (I collect them), for example - fairy, wish, faith, hope, etc. These were decoupaged onto the block and left to dry.  I sponged Warm Breeze VF Clair ink around the edges of the block.

Once the block was completely dry the Leafy Scrolls, Kissing Fairy and Stardust images were stamped directly onto the block using VersaFine Clair inks. I also stamped an extra set of wings onto a piece of vellum cardstock.

I stamped and fussy cut several Wild Leaves images onto scraps of white cardstock. These leaves were glued to the block as seen. I also affixed the die-cut sentiment to the block at this time.

I colored the vellum wings using alcohol markers and they were then glued in place. A white acrylic paint pen was used to add details and glitter was added to the Star Dust image and the visible edge of the block.
