Something Big - Something Small
Hello, welcome to my blog. Today we begin a new challenge at Sparkles Monthly Challenges. Dawn S has chosen #149 Something Big and Something Small. We leave this entirely to you, but please do tell us what you have done tgo meet the challenge. For more details please visit the blog and check out the inspirtion by the design team.
For my card, I used a white 5 x 7" card, added a black mat. The coloured card with the foilage at the base was, I admit, a bought sheet from a recent visit to a craft event. It is glossy card, so I had to use my stamping platform to ensure good coverage and prevent slipping when stamping. The stamps I used are the larger (big) fairy Tree Goddess - Luna and the small fairy, the collection of stars are all by Lavinia stamps. I used Versafine Claire - Nocturne ink. The sentiment is from my stash. Have fun, I look forward to seeing your entries. Stay safe.

HLS Stencil Challenge - February
Hello, welcome to my blog. I am thrilled to be joining so many talented crafters at Happy Little Stampers - Anything Goes - February challenge.
please visit the main blog for more details and to see the wonderful inspirational cards/ projects displayed by the design team.
For my DT card, above, I started with the background, I wanted the outer border to be of the same colour palette as the main finished project, I used two DI - Vintage Velvet and Chipped Sapphire to create a border around the edge. I used a Lisa Horton stencil, with the same colours as for the edge. The flower stamps are years old grey rubber by Sheena Douglass - Flower Power. Coloured by dipping into watercoloured inks. Have fun, I look forward to seeing your Stencil card. Take care. xx
