Little Miss Muffet Stamps Inspiration Post

As You Like It Challenge Favourite Ribbons or Buttons - although I have used both ribbons and a button on this card, I rarely use buttons despite having heaps of them.

The Paper Shelter Challenge #348 Ribbon, Lace or Twine

Good morning and welcome to my latest post for the new challenge from The Paper Shelter. This week our challenge is for you to use ribbon, lace or twine on your project.

I used the gorgeous newly released Little Mermaid on Vacation! image. I just love this digi stamp and added some freehand waves around here for the sea. This was the first time I had done this technique and love how it came out. I added some white chalk pen to the very tops of the waves as well to give it a bit of movement!

Whimsy Stamps Mazarine Butterfly Fairy

Good morning and welcome to my final DT post for Whimsy Stamps. I have decided to step down from this DT partly due to lack of mojo and partly due to workload. As a teacher the summer term is always the busiest with end of year assessments to do and end of year reports along with parents evening and everything else, then throw my birthday celebrations into the mix and it's just non-stop! I am finding I have no free time and a severe lack of energy during the week to get much done!

Just wanted to say a little thank you to Denise for inviting me to join the DT back in February 2017 and thank you also for your great generosity. Thank you also to Crissy for designing fabulous digital stamps and Tracy (when she was also designing for the team) and to the rest of the DT for their amazing inspiration! I have had a blast!

So anyway...here's my last card using Mazarine Butterfly Fairy from Marina Fedotova.

Faery Ink A Midsummer Night's Dream ATC Swap

Good morning! I joined in with the Faery Ink ATC swap this month, which I have never done before. I don't think I have every made an ATC to swap (I have done a couple of the pocket letters which used ATC sized pieces), so I'm hoping I have done it correctly! I am also hoping that my swap partner has now received these and I can now share them with you.

For this swap we could use any kind of "fae" creature, so I used the gorgeous  Mermaid Speckles from the Mermay Digi Bundle and Bella Book Faery for my 2 ATCs. I also made some little pocket envelopes to keep them in - not sure if that's the done thing, but saw something on Pinterest and thought it would be a good way to protect when posting if nothing else!

I kept these quite plain with just a touch of patterned paper and ribbon.


And here are my two ATCs together... I found it quite hard colouring the Bella Book Faery at such a smaller size than my usual size, but I think she came our pretty well!


And close ups...I added lots of Stickles to the sea for some texture and shine! You can't really tell in this photo but I added some pale green Copic to her skin and it shows up a bit more in real life. 


And now for Bella Book Faery. She has Wink of Stella on her wings, which you can't really see here, but it is there honestly! The sentiment is also covered with dark pink Wink of Stella!

Nikki Burnette's I love Books

Good evening and welcome to my post! Today I am sharing a colouring I have been slowly adding to over the past couple of weeks. I finally finished it about 11pm last night! I've had little time to finish this in one or two sittings, so it has taken me a while to do, but I finally got there.

I used the gorgeous I Love Books image from Nikki Burnette's Spellbinding Images Colouring Book Volume 3 and printed it to roughly an A5 sized image.

I went with traditional Halowe'en colours of purple, green, orange and black and then got stuck on what to do for the background, so went with some purply-grey clouds, which didn't come out quite as blended as I had hoped for, but in real life, they are not quite as stark as in the photo!

Not sure if you can see it either, but the sentiment is covered with clear star gelly roll pen for a touch of glitter too!

At the minute I'm not sure what I am going to do with this colouring, so have just mounted it onto some card, but I might frame it and add it to my wall!

This project is also for
