Magical Fairies.

Good afternoon all, how is your day going?

I must admit I am a bit down at the moment, so much bad news and nasty people around and Karl and me are off to a funeral in an hour....which reminds me how short life can be...

So with this in mind I thought I would blog a lovely bright card....I made this one for Barbars one day show on HOCHANDA...

This is to remind me off all the lovely friends , family and crafters who I know and how Magical life can be...

I started with a piece of stencil card , the large moon mask and a Mustard Seed Distress Ink.

With just a tiny bit of Spiced Marmalade in the centre.. Next I changed the outer for the inner part of the mask and blended more Spiced Marmalade DI

Followed by some Peacock Feathers.

And Evergreen Bough, and just a touch of Black Soot around the edge.

Next came some water you know how much I like doing this bit...

There is a gorgeous little foliage stamp that comes with the fairies and I do love to use makes a wonderful border.


Next the word Magical from the word chains.

And then the fairies.

Some stars and a touch of Wink Of Stella...

All the stamps , moon mask and stencil card are available on the Claritystamp web site...

Let's just pretend that life is a fairytale...if it was....which one would you choose?

Now that has set me thinking....mmmm I wonder....

I must admit that I watched the new Cinderella film the other week and it was magical....

I must dash....I think I may need an extra vest as it is so cold outside today...

Much love and hugs to all,

Thanks for visiting and for being you
