Fairy Delights

Hi Crafters,

I'm doing well with my mission to post each day and get some of cards up here on my blog. Thanks for calling by and sharing your comments and encouragement.

Today I have three fairy themed cards, they all started off with experimental inky backgrounds using Distress Oxide inks. I don't often get the chance for 'messy' play but when I do I really enjoy the process.

The two cards above were made using the Papercuts dies by Cathie Shuttleworth. The sentiment stamps and die cut word are from Crafters Companion. I sprayed them both with Crafters Companion Spray & Sparkle - Pearl Diamond.

This card was created using lots of different stamps from Lavinia, Sheena Douglas and magazine freebies. The sentiment die is a Fuzzy Lemon one from Craft Stash.

Challenges I'd like to enter:
Incy Wincy Designs - Fantasy
Stamping Sensations - Things with Wings

Wishing you a great week...

Oh, I absolutely love these. The inky backgrounds looks absolutely fantastic and make the gorgeous die cuts and stamps pop. Absolutely love the beautiful scene you've created on your third card, Lorraine.
