Good morning folks, we've got a new challenge over at Polkadoodles and this time around our theme is Things with Wings. As always my teamies have got lots of inspiration for you and we've got a fab prize up for grabs so pop on over to the challenge blog and find out all the details.
I've had lots of stamping fun creating this card using some of the fab new Stamp Soup stamps! I just love toadstools and I couldn't resist making a fairy too. The staircase and backing papers are from the CD collection 'Magic Garden', the stamps are mostly from the Magic Garden stamp set with a couple from Little Kingdom. These new goodies sold like hot cakes on C&C but you can preorder yours here and here! Be warned though, these stamps are totally addictive!
I began by stamping all the toadstools and the fairy and colouring them with distress inks before cutting them out. The fairy was made by stamping one of the toadstool stalks for the body, the wings are flower petals and her legs are leaves. Her head, hat and feet are just little shaped stamps and her hair is one of the lovely swirls. Because they are clear stamps they are really easy to use.
I printed out the backing paper and the staircase. I stencilled the brick background around the stairs using more distress inks and added some grass with a paintbrush.
I layered the toadstools and fairy up and then popped my little scene on the backing paper. I've added lace, ribbon and pearls to finish off.
