Sunday Stampers theme this week was Imagine. I imagine that there are lots of fairies at the bottom of the garden(wish they could do the weeding for me), so decided to use the free stamps with this months Papercraft Inspirations for my project. The images were stamped on mountboard and watercoloured with my Derwent Inktense pencils. Then I washed the entire piece with pale green and inked the edges with a mix of chalk ink and gold Krylon pen.I used some lovely beaded trim which my friend Hels sent me and punched a couple of holes at the top with my Cropadile to thread some ribbon through for hanging. Stickles added some sparkle for the wings. Very basic, you should check out the hanging pieces Hels made for this challenge, they are amazing. You'll find the link to her blog on my side bar.
The Daisy May challenge this week is "friendship". I thought this Daisy May image was perfect. It was coloured with Promarkers and matted on some Bazzill. The paper is from Basic Grey Bittersweet collection and the raffia ribbon was from Bunny Zoe Crafts, I love it.I also used a charm on my card for the first time. I must get proper tools for opening and closing the jump rings, teeth are not so good!
