Saturday 28 September 2019


Hello and happy Saturday! This week's theme at Sweet Stampin' is 'distressed' - lovely theme with many interpretations ( love Susan's take on the theme- great thinking and obviously heartfelt!).
 It seems ages since I made this type of card, struggled a bit at first but once I got my head round it I really enjoyed it! The background is smooshed Distress oxides, stamped with a script stamp and a Lavinia vine leaf stamp (love this one!) I stamped the fairy, again Lavinia, Oona, with black Versafine ink then arranged the lace, flowers and die cut vine leaves around her.. I added a stamped sentiment and mounted the panel onto Mulberry paper with torn edges. I enjoyed making this and am happy with the result ( unusual for me!)
Please do check out this Challenge, there are some wonderful creations from the DT and we would really love to have more entries this week!
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.

Oh my dear Chris! You have melted my heart! If I had all the products, I would case this card without a single change! Beautiful, Magical, Whimsical - you inspire me to go out and check my garden to see if any fairies are hiding there! Loving the scripty stamp and the fact that the background blends with the flowers in the same distressed tones. The fairy is there to repair, replenish, lovingly nurture - oh! Wait! That sounds just like YOU, too! Maybe this is a self portrait of your soul as you sleep at night? I actually saw your card at Sweet Stampin's Challenge, and immediately came to your blog to express how beautiful it is! But I see also that you are playing in the LW challenge, so permit me to change hats now: So happy I saw your pretty card at Lavinia World Challenges >. Hope to see more of your creations in the future.

Super colours, great background and some gorgeous elements a really super creation.
Honestly, since arriving home at 11p.m. last night my bite has not iced or burned, still look bad but not as bad as it did, made my varicose veins look good.
