Fairy friends from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, today's card features the gorgeous new Spring Fairy stamps from Chocolate Baroque. I love the beautiful fresh colours of spring so I really enjoyed making this card, the new stamps are fab!

I stamped the fairy (from May Fairy) and the bird on the grass (from April Fairy) and coloured them with Graph'It markers, adding the grass by flicking the markers. I used PanPastels to add the sky to the little scene. 

The background was made using distress inks in shades of yellow and green. I used the acrylic block technique and then stencilled over them using the same inks with the Crafters Workshop Punchinella Template. I stamped the delicate flourish from March Fairy around the edges. I added a some lace, gingham ribbon, paper flowers and a little bee charm from my stash to finish off and popped my design on a scalloped card blank.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Craftitude: anything goes or add green
Created with love: think spring
Fantasy Stampers: Spring colours
Stamp and Create: Ready for Spring
Tando Creative: brown, green and yellow

Thanks for popping by today

  4. beautiful work Claire - just adore the colours xx

  5. Her wings are just beautiful Claire & I love the way she & the bird are having a conversation. Your little bee charm adds another creaturely touch & your little cluster of flowers really helps to set the atmosphere for the little scene. The scroll border stamping adds to the wispy etherealness of the design's whole tone.
