'Butterflies Fairies and Fantasy' at Stamping Sensations

Hello there, and a very happy Sunday morning to you all.

As most of you will already know, I was lucky enough to win the March challenge over at Stamping Sensations. This really came as a huge surprise to me as there were so many beautiful entries.  I won a fabulous prize of some 'Tattered Lace' dies, and I was also asked by Brenda if I would be their Guest Designer for May, so I jumped at the chance and here's the card that I've made for them:


The main Fairy stamp that I've used is by 'Make Your Mark.' They have a wonderful little stamp shop on Goodramgate in York, so if you're having a trip out to York, then it's well worth a visit. The rest of the stamps that I've used are all by Inkylicious, with the exception of the butterfly which is one that I got in a small set from The Works.

The inks that I've used are by: Adirondack; Distress;Versafine.

I used Perfect Pearls on the tips of the flowers to give some dimension and to make them stand out a little. I think this works particularly well against the dark inks. I also added some iridescent glitter to the Butterfly Fairy's wings, although I'm not sure that it shows up too well in the first photo, so here's a close up:


Just before I go, I would like to show another photo of just a few of the flowers that I've made so far with my prize from Stamping Sensations.  I just love the Lily, which looks so real, what do you think?


That's me done for today and I hope that you like what I've made.  Many thanks to Brenda and her wonderful Design Team for giving me the pleasure of joining them today and I'm sure they would love you to pop over to their blogs to see what they've made too.

Wishing you a very happy and relaxing day x

Your card is just beautiful Sandra and love the way the Fairy is dancing across the toadstools under the glow of the moon/sun. It could be the scene at the end of my garden or yours as well as I assume you have Fairies as well ?

And you have created some lovely Lilies with your TL prize, like you I find the Lilies so lifelike.

I am so pleased you have joined us as our Guest Designer at Stamping Sensations this month, my thanks for creating such a lovely card to inspire us all.
