Fairies Come Out on This Blog.

Fairies are coming out everywhere on this blog the next two weeks.  The Design Team has created a number of pieces  to inspire you.  Their images are from Sweet Pea Stamps.  I hope you will join us in this challenge for the next two weeks.
I just love the fairy images from Sweet Pea Stamps.  They are all gorgeous and it is hard to pick one as a favorite.  My rose fairy is printed on a piece of white cardstock and then I added some gold embellishment stickers to the corners..  The image was then placed on a piece of cardstock that I had altered a couple of years ago and never used all of it.  In the corner are some pick felt flowers with stones as centers.

For my card I used the lovely Ching chou kuik's 'magic spread' digi kindly supplied by our sponsor, Sweet Pea Stamps. I coloured with spectrum noir pencils and cut the image with a Spellbinders nestie die, brushing with antique linen distress ink before removing from the die. This was then matted on to another Spellbinders nestie die cut using some matt gold card, which was also embossed. The paisley embossed background was created with an embossalicious folder using some cream card with gold glitter, brushing this with the antique linen ink, adding the strip of corrugated card, sentiment, gems and hessian and wood flowers. Everything was then matted on to matt gold card and then a kraft card blank. I based the card on a sketch - more info on my blog.
For the first week of Fairies, I used a lovely image kindly supplied by our sponsor Sweet Peas Stamps.  I colored my fairy digitally and layered it on scrapbook papers.Then I added some butterflies, flowers, crystals and a sentiment. I hope you keep playing along with us. Have a magical week!

For Week 1 of the Fairies challenge I chose this super sweet image coloured her in pink and fussy cut, I had the cloud background in the scrap folder. I added a couple of shiny butterflies and I haven't decided what I would use this for so left the sentiments off for now.

My ATC in celebration of fairies starts with this digital image from our sponsor Sweet Pea Stamps printed on designer paper by Gecko Galz.  I colored the image with pencils, outlined in black pen and added the sun and flowers border.  This is such a wonderful challenge theme; I hope you will join us!
Hello, I used the lovely Darkling by Janna Prosvirina, which is available from out sponsor, Sweet Pea Stamps.I coloured her with alcohol markers and layered parts of the image, I cut it with a Spellbinders grand nestie and used Distress Inks and roughed it a bit for a distressed look. I layered it onto a sheet of paper printed from Craft Artist and layered this onto pale blue card. I made a floral arrangement by curving a bough of purple flowers and placing this onto a nest of tattered florals cut from Tulle using Tim Holtz sizzix die. I finished off with a few leaves cut from Spellbinders. Finished piece is aprox 8 x 10 inches.All The Best. xx
