I'm also very pleased to share another bit of news - Totally Papercrafts have picked me & my little blog to be a part of their Design Team! I'm blown away! Two design team offers in a week - it's done my card-making ego a world of good!
Today's card has another of my favourite LOTV stamps on called 'On Tiptoes' and I think this little fairy is just so lovely! And she's in a garden where it's not raining! Not like mine which is starting to resemble the Somme and I've got a nasty suspicion that when it does dry up a bit and the sun comes out (ha!) that the weeds will have overtaken the flowers in the growing stakes!
I've coloured the stamp with promarkers in peach colours - fading them out with the blender pen. I've used prisma pencils for a little extra definition and then added a little glitter - I always have an urge to give fairies an extra bit of glitter!
The backing paper is from Teresa Collins 'Fabrications' and really like the peachy colours together with the teal blue colours. Unfortunately they look a bit faded in my photo - must get my photography skills sorted lol! Not colours I'd usually put together but I'm liking the effect!
I've added a Marianne die cut swirl, punched flowers with gems (coloured with promarkers!) and sheer ribbon with a MemoryBox buckle die cut. The bow is vintage seam binding, and the sentiment stamp is also LOTV.
A quick glimpse of the inside of the card. I'm trying to make an effort to add inserts or decorated interiors to my cards so that at least they're ready for me to use (or occasionally sell!).
I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-
