Fab 'n Funky Challenge #269

Good morning! It's my turn to host the challenge over at Fab N Funky, which means I get to choose the theme...I chose 'no patterned papers' by which I mean no pre printed designer paper or designer paper downloads, it's perfectly acceptable to make your own by stamping, stencilling, inking, painting etc!
Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Stitchy Bear, who allowed each of the DT to pick an image to play with.

I chose to use Berry, this sweet little fairy is pre shaded so I decided not to colour her, just printed her onto white card, die cut with a stitched rectangle die and stamped 'magical' in the top right hand corner. I matted this onto a piece of the same white card which I had stamped and embossed with white detail ep and then coloured with pale blue and yellow pan pastels, doesn't show up tht well in the photos!
I stamped the butterflies and trails and embossed in black, then stamped the butterflies again onto acetate, I coloured both lots of butterflies with copics, then cut out and adhered the acetate butterflies over the original stampings. I used tiny gems in matching shades to fill in the trails.
Sorry I couldn't get the colours to photograph well, they are much more vibrant IRL!
I do hope you'll be tempted to join us for this challenge, as it's summer holidays here and everyone is busy, this challenge is running for 3 weeks to give you plenty of time to join in!
Thanks for visiting
have a lovely day
