Flutterby Fairies

Hello Everyone

So what happened to the summer? We have rain and thunder here, I guess thats what we get for complaining about the heat.

This week over at polkadoodles it is Lou's turn to get our creative cogs whiring and she said...

Use Fairy Flutterby Stamps to create ALL of your card - background, image & sentiment!

I decided to make a patterned paper using a selection of the fairy flutterby stamps. So I used my biggest acrylic block and randomly arranged the accessory stamps from various fairies. I stamped this onto white card repeatedly to make a background paper, using individual stamps to go back and fill in the gaps. I coloured the images using letraset promarkers. I also added glitter to the butterflies, glossy accents to the toadstools and lady birds and liquid pearls to the flower centres. Finally I used tattered straw distress ink around the edges

I stamped Maxine and her wings onto more white card and again coloured and glittered. I then mounted it onto a nestabilities shaped which i had inked with distress ink.

To finish off I coloured a piece of white satin ribbon with my promarkers and tied it around the centre.

I hope you like my card and I love reading your comments. Take a stroll over to polkadoodles to join in our fairy challenge and see the rest of the teams designs.

Ooooh and check back after the weekend as there are some gorgeous new products being released over the weekend and I have some samples to show
