Fairy Wishes

Morning fellow bloggers well so far no rain so I might just potter in the garden later and plant up my tubs of flowers as so far this year I have neglected my poor garden and its in need of some TLC, my son has just had his final exam at uni. and has nowh has got to join the world of workers, it doesn't seem 5 mins since we were going round looking at the university, he's finally made his mind up that he want to go into gaming but on the 3D art side rather than the computer programming although he learnt this as part of his degree, seems quite funny really as he showed no sign of artistic leaning as he was growing up.

Well my card today is a fairy/butterfly card as there seems to be quite a few challenges this week featuring wings, butterflies and fairies so I decided to combine all 3 just to be different, the previous week I won the challenge at Simon Says and got to spend $25 so I chose the butterfly punch from Martha Stewart and some art stamps which included the butterfly wing which arrived by post yesterday.

The background paper is a digi paper from Cuddly Buddly.....part of the lilac images I've been playing with, I distressed the diamond paper and then glimmer misted it to add depth of colour, the flowers I punched out and then painted to match the flowers in the image.....which is from Crafty Individuals. The wing was stamped onto acetate and then coloured in with glitter at the back to get a know me I do love my glitter and shimmer.

Challenges are:

Simon Says.....sketch
Stamp Something.......celebrate something, e.g. birthday.
Theme Thursday.....Butterflies/wings.
Creative Inspirations......Fairies.
Sir Stampalot......butterflies and blossom.
