This Fairy stamp from LOTV was kindly given to me from my friend Jane so I thought I would christen it by making her a thankyou card with it.
I have coloured with distress inks and added SU Stampin` Glitter - Dazzling Diamonds to highlight her tiara, flowers and wings. The nestie used is Labels 10 and I have cut the swirls from Tim Holtz - Elegant Flourishes Sizzix die. The backing papers are SU Designer series papers - subltles (which I love and cannot stop using !) Imaginesce- Fairest of them all and Overton House designs - Pink Faux/ Toile. The outer flower is Prima and the ribbon flower is from Hobbycraft ( I think ? ) and the corner punch and sentiment are SU.
I would like to enter this is the latest LOTV challenge 96 - Ribbon and Bows.
The muse was with me yesterday, I put a classical music CD on the player, turned up the volume , got to work at my craft desk and made 6 cards ! That is a record for me I usually make 2 or 3 at the most in a craft session but I had some lovely new stash given to me by Sir Stampalot to make some samples for them and I had a couple of birthday cards to make also and I just kept going, I could have crafted all night !!
I have to get some housework done today, the carpet around my desk is covered in little bits of paper, 3D foam backs, glitter, ribbon ends etc etc... You all know what it`s like after a good craft session !! So I`d better sign off and get on with that now, thanks for looking in, bye for now and Happy Crafting xx
