Sir Stampalot Challenge April Fantasy

I decided to go with fairies at the bottom of the garden, I've always liked that idea.

To create this card I used Stamps: Woodware Fairy Tots, Magnolia grass tussock, Lavinia Cherry blossom tree.  Inks: Memento Tuxedo black, Summer sky, Pear tart, Cottage Ivy, Bamboo leaves.  Colouring: Copic markers, Sakura gel pens.  Cardstock/Paper: White hammered card, green card and paper, blue paper, pink paper, Doodlebug Designs Inc. Spring assortment.  Punches: X-Cut flower.  Dies: Sizzix Extended cuts grass. 

The background was stamped and coloured in using a mixture of Copic markers and Memento dye ink.  The Fairies were paper pieced and coloured in using Copic markers.  I decided to make this card an easel card so I could have fun creating a scene with the fairies, but I do find it hard to take a photograph of an easel card I can never seem to get the whole of the card in.

This card was created for the Sir Stampalot Challenge.


  1. Hello Linda

    This is just adorable, beautifully worked.

    I thought we all had fairies at the bottom of the garden ?

    Totoally agree on the problem taking pictures of easel cards, there never seems to be a good way to show them, but they are a shape I really like.

    Thank you for joining in at Stamalot tihs month and good luck.
