Good morning, hope you have had a lovely long weekend even if the weather was awful. Its back to work for me this morning and I just wanted to let you know that the Summer Fairies have arrived at Chocolate Baroque, this is the fourth release so now all 4 seasons are available in these beautiful stamps! Pop over and have a look at them here
I've used the gorgeous Fuchsia image from the August Fairy set as my focal image, coloured with Graph'It markers and die cut with a sizzix die and inked with Picked Raspberry distress ink. I've made a distress ink background with shades of pink and purple and added lots of lace, ribbon, pearl trim, cheesecloth fabrix, gems and a little paper flower.
Once I'd got it all finished I decided it needed a little fairy peeping at the flower so I gritted my teeth and stamped the little fairy (also from August) with purple Memento ink, keeping my fingers crossed that it stamped ok and didn't completely bodge up the whole card lol. Fortunately it worked, phew!!!!
I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A Creative romance: girly
Charisma Cardz: May flowers
Crafty Creations: flowers, die cut, ribbon, purple
Dream Valley: things with wings
Fab'n'Funky: ribbon, pearls/rhinestones
One Stitch at a time: anything goes
Stampin with the dragon: flowers
Well my darling fur baby Benji seems to be doing well on his new meds, the vet is pleased with him and all his blood results are fine so fingers crossed he'll be with us a while longer. Here he is looking a bit thoughtful, isn't he adorable?
Our puppy is 2 today so there will be toys and treats later, where have the last two years gone? Here's the birthday boy, just about to pounce on an unsuspecting fly lol
Thanks so much for popping by, i'm off to work now and then to pick up my new specs. How exciting I'll be able to see what I'm doing now lol
