KISS at Sweet Stampin' !

 Good morning- time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' the theme for this fortnight is KISS- Keep It Sweet and Simple. I've used a gorgeous fairy image from Mo Manning- ok maybe you couldn't describe her as 'sweet' but I do love a fairy with attitude!- I've seen just exactly  that expression on small girls' faces many a time! 

I wanted to keep the palette simple as well as the design so decided to colour her in sepia tones. I have addded Wink of Stella to her wings so they're lovely and sparkly IRL. I masked her feet to stamp the grassy border , then stamped the sentiment. The stencil is a Tim Holtz one. 

The Sweeties have created some fabulous and very varied takes on this theme so don't miss out, just click HERE to hop on over to the Challenge blog- we'd love to see your take on the theme too- so why not get out those stamps and play along. 

Thanks for visiting

have a good weekend
