Up and Away at the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge

Good Morning my lovely craft friends.
I hope you are well and having a good week. I can't believe how quickly the school holidays have gone but we have been making the most of it and enjoying the good weather.

Today is the start of a new Crafty Little Fairies Challenge
This week our fun theme is
Up and Away
For this challenge we are sponsored by
Prize = 4 digis of winner's choice

My adorable image is a digi stamp from the fabulous Tiddly Inks
I seem to have gone for a monochrome look, it wasn't intentional but I wanted to use some fab Doodlebug papers that I have had in my stash for a while and a green landscape just would have looked wrong!

I have added looks of Wink of Stella Clear Glitter to the balloons, they do look lovely and sparkly in real life, not sure if you can see it on my photo?


Items Used:
Digi Stamp and sentiment - Tiddly Inks Flying High Anna Belle coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Doodlebug Designs
Memory Box Puffy Clouds
Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Brush

If you take a look at the Crafty Little Fairies Challenge you will see the wonderful creations made by the rest of this week's design team.



I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
Crafty Catz  - Animals (3rd Entry! I seem to be going through an animal phase at the moment!)
Kit and Clowder - Something Blue (my blue is aqua I think it may look green in my photo!)
Bunny Zoe Crafts - Monochrome
ABC Challenge - J Just as you like it (anything goes)
I ♥ Promarkers - Cats and/or Dogs

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make
Bye for now
hugs

Donna Ellis said...

Adorable image is right, Sue! How sweet. But I must admit that half of his sweetness is determined by you fabulous monochromatic card setting. Springy aqua - and yes, I can see the glitter. Glitter is difficult to capture with a camera, which is why I usually have multiple photos at angles - to capture some hint of that elusive sparkle or EP texture. Love the sentiment in a cloud - as though he's REALLY hanging on up in the dangerous zone LOL - that would be me right now - so I'm taking heart from your "prayer made with fingers". Very sweet Landscaping beneath him, too. You have such a way with die cuts, and all your cards look "classy" with very clean lines. I'd love to learn your techniques. Think I'll come spend a few days with you LOL xo
