Mystical and very magical at FSC

Hi there, and a warm welcome to my new followers :-) We've got a new challenge starting at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and our theme this time is 'Mystical and very Magical'. As always our lucky winner will receive a fab prize from our generous sponsor Marina from Cottage Crafts.

For my DT card I've used a fairy stamp from Stampendous, coloured with distress markers. I used distress stains to create the background (worn lipstick and tea dye) and tried my own version of frantage around the edges and across the bottom of the image. I didn't have any of the proper stuff so I just mixed an assortment of embossing powders, UTEE, glitter, micaflakes, microbeads and some tiny stars and sprinkled it on before heating from underneath. I've also added glamour dust to the lovely fairy, you can see her a little better in this pic but as always my photography skills are abysmal lol

To finish off I've added some little pearls, lace and some shabby chic ribbon( from the Funkie Junkie's boutique, this is ribbon that came as part of the packaging!!) and a flower made using a stamp from Chocolate Baroque with more of my frantage mixure in the centre.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Delicious Doodles: Loads of bling
Simon Says Stamp: anything goes

Thanks for popping by, do check out my teamies gorgeous projects if you've got a minute.
Thanks to everyone who has been so kind about my poorly dog, its been such a comfort. Mia seems to be doing well on her new medication so far, she's such a brave girl and its lovely to see her starting to trot round again and wagging her tail. She must be feeling better as the other day I caught her stood up with her paws on the dining table helping herself to a plate of chicken, I never thought I'd be pleased to see her pinching my dinner lol
