Funky Fairy challenge


Can't believe I managed all these challenges today. I am back to work tomorrow after taking time off to nurse my little boy after his tonsils were removed. As a result I have not had much crafty time over the last week. He is much better today so I got time to play.
The Funky Fairy challenge this week was to use stamping for your card. The only exception wasthe allowance of paper/card for matting and layering.
I took an A5 cream balnk and stamped all over it in Versafine Sepia ink using my new Stampendous background cube. Using the same ink pad I stamped a wonderful image from Lost Coast Designs and edged it with gold Krylon pen. I cut a mat from brown Bazzill cardstock and matted the image onto it. This was then mounted onto the card with foam pads. A smaller piece of brown Bazzill was used for the greeting. Hope I was allowed a peel-off?

You've done really well with the challenges! The Tilda is cute but I love this one! Soft blues and browns are ones of my favourite colour combos and the simple stamping is perfect with this image - love it!
