Good morning, and thanks for looking in on my first DT card for the Oldie But A Goodie Challenge. I was really thrilled when Francesca asked me to join the team, and the ladies have all given me a really warm welcome so I couldn't wait to get started. Luckily I managed to get myself organised for once in advance, as my cardmaking has had to go out of the window the past few days!
This fortnight is Tracy's turn to pick the challenge, and she has chosen
Fairies, mermaids, dragons or any magical being
Tracy has also donated this yummy prize - an adorable "Pepper & Friends" clear stamp set.
There are just a few simple rules to follow to be eligible for the prize - just follow the challenge theme with a new project, and use a stamped image (no digis) for a stamp that is at least six months old ... and don't forget to have fun!!
The other ladies on the DT have created some really magical creations, so please do check them out - here's mine.
As it happens I only have one fairy stamp that is older than six months, so there wasn't a lot of agonizing to do there! I really do love this LotV fairy - she was one of the first (of many!!) LotV stamps I ever bought, and I think she looks really pretty in so many different colour schemes. Here is a closeup of the front, as I find easel cards soooo difficult to photograph successfully!
I remembered that I had also got an old Penny Black sentiment stamp which combines the notions of spring and magic, so I decided to make a fairy card in spring colours decorated with spring flowers.
Main image: LotV "Fairies - On Tiptoe" coloured with Promarkers and sprinkled with fairy dust (I mean ... glamour dust!);
Sentiment: Penny Black "Spring Magic" (2852C);
Papers: Papermania "Forever Friends - Spring Time";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls from The Hobby House; large pearl brad and ribbons from my stash;
Tools: large circle and large scalloped circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "floral vine" deep edge punch; Marianne D Creatables "Flower swirl" die; Magnolia doohickey "vintage tag" die.
