During our recent vacation in Scotland I was able to visit a lovely Craft Store with one of Jim's (my DH) cousins. I ended buying a Faerie Poppet stamp set by Creative Expressions. A nice souvenir of the UK! There are 3 sweet Fairies and a couple of sentiments in the set. These are quite different than any of the stamps in my collection and I was able to get them out this weekend to give them a try.
While it's close to the April 4th deadline, I'm entering this card into the For your Inspiration Challenge (FYI Challenge #26). Visit their Blog to see the beautiful work posted by the Design Team. This is my first time joining in, but I've been admiring Sylvia's creations, who is a member of their Design Team, for several months. You can find her designs at her Blog - Poppy's Papercraft Patch.
I stamped one of the Faeries from the Fairy 2 set by Creative Expressions onto watercolor paper with Black Stazon ink and colored her with my Tombow markers using water & brushes. I used the "FYI" photo (see bottom of this post) as inspiration for coloring my Fairy. The image has a lot of detail, I think she is sweet. I added lots of holograph glitter to highlight areas and had fun creating flowers with my new Crealie dies. (I love the Crealies, can't wait to build the collection!)
Dies used: Crealie Flowers CL CF 17, Crealie Shapes CL CS 11 and Spellbinder Nestability Label Eight S5-019.
The green DP is from a 2008 Basic Grey mini pad - 'Boxer'. Wow it's been here that long ? At least I only have 1/2 of the pad left. The burgundy DP is from a K&C Company mini pad - Christmas Cheer.
Well that's all for now. Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day !
