Things with wings with the Crafty little Fairies


Its challenge day for the Crafty Little Fairies again - and I'm late again.
I'm not doing very well this week and I'm blaming it on the sunshine (not the boogie)
I normally have some crafty time on my days off but the weather has been so great and we haven't seen the sun for so long - I just had to go out to say hello 
- and that really is the best excuse I've got!

The challenge today is

Things with wings

one of my favourites - birds, bees, butterflies.....and fairies.

I used a really cute little fairy from Lili of the Valley called
Flower Fairy  she is available here 

We have a fabulous sponsor this week

and this is the prize on offer

Well worth the effort of entering this week I'd say!

This card wasn't what I had intended to make for this challenge at all I have to confess!  I got it into my head that I would use some stamps that I've had for years - probably some of the very first I ever bought and make a tag -  But after turning the whole place upside down - I just can't find them.  They are Christmas Flower Fairy stamps from Crafters Companion -so pretty - I expect lots of you have them too.  The strange thing is I've seen them here in the house recently and also an image that I coloured years ago (that was really bad!) - on the bright side I found dozens of things that haven't seen daylight for a long time including some spellbinders dies that had fallen down the back of a drawer and 3 whole sets of  Elizabeth Bell Whiff of Joy mystery stamps that I signed up for - then never used. I did use a couple out of the 4th set lol- and for any of my MAWTT buddies who are reading - I found my pad of vellum papers - better late than never lol.  There's going to be some serious using of old stash going on around here - watch this space!

Anyway enough of my old stash
Here's what I did....

Image -Flower Fairy from LOTV
Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils
Sentiment - Whiff of joy
Scalloped card - Craftwork Cards
Ribbon and butterfly - from my stash
Glamour dust - for a bit of sparkle!

Hope you can join us this week  see you there!
