Sweet Pea Stampers - Fairies Live in the Bottom of the Garden

Happy Monday morning to you all. I am still in shock that i made the
Sweet Pea Stampers DT! how did that happen??? I am absolutely thrilled to be able to take part in this weekly challenge, with the amazing DT members there, thank you so much ladies for letting me be part of your new venture. I hope I am not going to disappoint you!

Well this weeks challenge was titled "Fairies Live in the Bottom of the Garden" . I hope you like my interpretation of this. I Decided to make a garden scene using this fabulous stamp from Penny Black called "Flying Stars" and to make a box picture instead of a card.

I produced my old background using my alcohol inks and distress ink pads, and then stamping with my distress pad the flying stars. I have stickled the flying stars not particularly evident from this photo!

Unfortunately my pro-markers didn't colour too well onto this glossy card, but i hope it doesn't show up too much! I covered up the inperfect colouring with more stickles!!!

The roses have been glossy accented to add dimension.

We hope to see you join in with this weeks challenge, and I am looking forward to visiting your blogs and seeing your creations.

Thank you for taking the time to visit me, enjoy your day, big hugs Linda x
