Good morning all ,
thanks for joining me on this Friday morning.
Today it is the start of a new Fussy and Fancy Challenge.
Our theme is
Winter / Christmas
Now I know you will have stamps, stencils etc on your craft desk just waiting for this challenge.
I know I did,
Our hostess is the lovely
Here is what I came up with
Here is how I created it,
Well to be honest it sort of created itself, you see I didn’t really have a plan.
I started with a piece of card and some ink,
This really is a great way to just start and then play.
If Mr MoJo takes a holiday , encourage him back with inky play.
It really does work .
After some water splats , I stamped my arch,
These Lavinia stamps are so fabulous to use and stamp beautifully.
Next I added a tree , and I wanted to use a different stamp than the normal tree or now feather stamp..
Next came the fairies, the moon and the edges,
Blend8ng the edges really does help to frame the design
I do love the way the design just grows, so it was foliage next .
Now at this point , I just thought something didn’t look quite right...
And I couldn’t put my finger on it .
So I trimmed a couple of centimetres of the width,
and yes, that looked so much better .
Then I added some splats of haematite Inka Gold.
( don’t put these products away, keep using them )
A sentiment and some gems , and walk away
Sometimes you have to know when to stop...
I am so happy with the way the arch turned out ,
Hope you like it too.
If you fancy having a look at the Fussy and Fancy Challenge Blog

Love and hugs
