Where the fairies are

So have you ever wondered why the fairies never come to help with the household chores like we expect them to? Well now you will know why. This card was inspired by my bloggy friend Donna, who creates the most beautiful fairy cards. While my technique employed here is very different to hers, the scene inspiration is thanks to her.


I created a cardpanel out of white cardstock and using Memento inks and a mini blending tool, I created a background to look like a sunrise. I cut all the parts of the Altenew Craft-a-Flower lily die from Canson Watercolor paper and added a spot of color with my watercolor paints. The fairy is a Spellbinders die that I cut out of black glitter cardstock.


I adhered the flower and the fairy to my inked cardpanel so that her wand was placed in the colored part of the flower. The sentiment is a Spellbinders die inked with Memento ink and popped up on foam tape.


I completed the card by adhering the panel to a top-folding cardbase and added a few gems from my stash. With such a big job of coloring all the flowers in the morning, it is no wonder that the fairies are too tired to do much else.

I love the Altenew Craft-a-Flower Lily die. It goes together beautifully and is so versatile. I am excited to see what the next flower will be.

Today I have a card to show you that I made with a new-to-me digi stamp company. Patricia of Kinda Cute does the sweetest images and this one is called Baby Gnome.


Progressive Friends

The first of the month is always time for a new image at the Progressive Challenge at the Outlawz and this month our image Pony Plait by Hetty Clare.


Color with Pencils

Happy Friday and here I am with another challenge project between BożenA and I. This time she chose the theme and to my surprise, her choice was "Color with Pencils" Well that is something I love to do and so I decided it was the perfect time to use this cute digi by Lemon Shortbread.


Pink Lilies

Happy Tuesday! Today I am here to show you a card with a bit of a difference. I recently picked up the new Craft a Flower Lily Die from Altenew and I had a play with it. I created a card with three lilies in pink.


Washi Crash

And here I am with my second card for today. This time a DT card for the Outlawz Crash your Stash challenge and our cue this month is Washi Tape. Our sponsor is Lee Holland Art and I got to work with this cute digi called Dragon with Flowers.


Imagine

It is Friday again. I am not quite sure where the weeks fly to, but here we are. Today I have two DT projects to show you and this first one is for the Rabisco Challenge. Our sponsor for this half of the month is Oddball Art and I got to work with Kawaii Cloud and Hearts.
