Sweet Stampin' - fairies and angels

Time for a new challenge at Sweet Stampin' and this week we'd like to see 'fairies and angels'.  We're sponsored by Emerald Faeries who are offering one lucky winner 2 images of their choice, and our monthly sponsor is Joanna Sheen who is offering a £10 voucher for her fab online store.

Stupid moment(s) coming up....


Ok, so I really wanted to use these new Stampin' Up dies, but it was only when I'd nearly finished my card that I realised it wasn't actually going to stand up... oops!  So I'll have to make this one into an easel card later.  I still love the shape though!  I've used a sweet Emerald Faerie image, coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers and added my little Viva pearl dots. I've just realised I made a mistake with the colouring too - look at her tights!  How did I not notice that before?  The gorgeous spotty paper is a digi one from Raspberry Rd, printed onto linen card.  The sentiment is from one of the new LOTV sets, cut out with nestie oval dies, and the butterfly was cut with a Kars punch.

It all looks slightly wonky in the photo, but it's not - it's because I had to prop it against something to take the photo.... really there's no hope for some people you know!

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

Well we didn't get our day in the park yesterday, didn't really get the weather for it.  So we went to one of the local soft play centres instead, and mummy got to sit drinking hot chocolate and reading the kindle while the boys ran riot ;o)

Hope you're all having a good weekend so far!

I think this card is just lovely and those tiny little pearls look just like raindrops. Don't worry about the tights - it looks like she has short leggings on under her dress, which is right on trend in fairyland!

Hi Lisa

What a fab image .. .. you have showcased it beautifully.

I am sure no one would have noticed the tights if you hadn't mentioned them .. .. and as for the shape of the card .. .. well I never considered it not standing up as I was so impressed with everything else.

I love it!!!

Love Jules xx

Sarah said...

Hi Lisa, another gorgeous creation - would it stand up if you added a little piece of card to the back for it to rest on? A bit like the style with school pics, if you see what I mean?

I didn't notice the tights either - I was too busy thinking how well it was coloured and loving the pink of the mushroom!

I also was kicking myself as I did a LoTV order earlier this month (my treat!) and didn't get the sentiments - thought naw won't bother with those, wish I had now!!!
