Mystical and Magical at PanPastel UK

Hi there, phew I'm chasing my tail at the minute with work, hubby in hospital and trying to do battle with the weeds when I get chance. Its great to grab some time in my craft room though and have a play and I had loads of messy fun making this card. Its my DT card for PanPastel UK where the theme is Mystical and Magical

The large fairy and castle stamps are from Stampendous, the smaller fairy and the toadstools are from Chocolate Baroque, I stamped them all and masked them to create the sky with panpastels. I also masked a moon too. I used black, paynes grey and violet to create the sky and added some icicle stickles for the stars. The moon was made using white panpastel with a little violet and paynes grey pans around the edges. I coloured the scene with distress markers and added lots of glamour dust, fairies have to have a bit of sparkle lol. You can see the fairy a bit better here in this pic

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Mess: sun/moon
