Sooooo Come and Play!! and I will be happy again!
The challenge is a great one its Carol’s day to Host the challenge so here it is:
Challenge - 'Shaped Cards'
No Squares Allowed!
we have some AWESOME sponsors
SO not long is the inspiration awesome but the chances of winning a fantastic prize is brilliant too!
So here is my card using this gorgeous faerie called Ebony thank you Deb’s from The Emerald Faeries Garden who shared her with us. she is soooo cute and just reminds me of the faeries at the bottom of the garden.
Shaped card - July 19th TTT
Ok so my card is bigger than normal still fits into a standard square envelope but instead of drawing around a cd I used a large saucer I wanted it bigger as I wanted the faerie smaller but not to small!
I have used a combo of vintage core colour paper and some basic grey Hello Luscious papers, and my own backing paper made from distress inks, the Big flower is one of my flowers I made with recycled cardboard from new shoes… and I have also used a penny black flower stamp that is 3 flowers that I embossed in white and then water coloured to match. then a white gel pen to doodle… and a card candy centre… then some mini flowers punched from scraps, lots of distress tooled edges
(TIP) use the Tim Holtz distress tool to hide your hand cut edges.

Some other challenges I want to play along with today are:

WHAT will you make we really wanna see what you come up with this time!!
