Fairy Special Friend

Found this gorgeous word image on Tales From Pollycraft & combined it with a stamped image I borrowed from a friend to create this card.

LOTV Challenge 34 - So Charming

Here's my entry for the Lili of the Valley challenge "So Charming"

I've done a "Princess" birthday card using a tiara charm which I filled in the gem holes with glitter glue & then glaze over the top.

The Princess lettering was cut from card coloured in with promarker "Rose Pink", touched
with glitter then glazed.

Papers - LOTV
Stamped Image - Princess, Unknown / Happy Birthday, LOTV

Here are some pictures of ATC's that I've made recently

Woof, Meow Series:- I was bored & started playing with a couple of stamps which gave a fun background. Using just white card and black ink I stamped the image a couple of times, then using promarkers picked out a couple of the sections to colour in & finally added a border.

The words where using my Quickutz, the letters then glazed (Trick learnt, glaze the letters after you stick them down as it's very fiddly to glaze on their own when their quite small!). Images are from a RSPCA sticker set.



Royal Edition:- I liked the new stamp collection from the Royal Mail, so I saved a couple of the unicorns & dragons to use in my crafting!
Gentle & Fierce Beauty:

Mad Sheep:- I made this to cheer someone up who likes sheep :) sheep images were from a free farm set from a magazine, I used "Fluffystuff - white" to make them puffy, then coloured in with promarkers (Blush, Sky blue, Pine, Ice Grey 1). Lettering down as the Woof, Meow Series, really like the glossy black effect!

Colouring Help

So I have this Lili of the Valley image and when it comes to the brides dress I dont know how to colour it in?

This time I've used a white sakura gel marker but it kinda looks like tippex :o/

So leave your comments on how best to colour her dress in?

"Oh no, someone spilt tippex on my dress!"
