Great Outdoors.

Well hellooo again! My fourth post this week...very unusual for me! This time I'm sharing my DT card for Sweet Stampin'. The theme of the challenge is 'The Great Outdoors', so lots of scope there! I decided to have a play with my lovely Lavinia stamps, and made a little scene by stamping the bridge, then masking it and swiping distress inks to colour the sky and grass. I then used distress inks and a brush to colour the bridge and stream. The two little fairies in the foreground, and the branch (not Lavinia) were stamped on top. I stamped the wings again on acetate, covered them in stickles and attached them to the fairies. The frame was made by die cutting a circle from a piece of black cardstock and sticking 2 corner die cuts on top (sorry, doesn't show up too well in the photo!) and that's about it! No copics or paper piecing (unless you count the wings...!)
There's a fabulous prize on offer this week from Stamp and Create, so hop on over here and join the fun!!!
Have a fabulous weekend!

  4. Excellent card Chris, I'm going to borrow this idea ;) I've had the bridge stamp for ages but despite many attempts, I have yet to make a card using it. I love how you've used your fairies. That's just what every attempt of mine has lacked! Enjoy the weekend, Julie xxx
