Pink fairy

Hello lovely people,

I have had such a great weekend filled with lots of time to craft and finishing up with coffee and cakes with friends this afternoon – just lovely!

Earlier this morning I decided to whip up (hmm, Dr Hubby might not agree with the use of the term ‘whip up’ but never mind!) a card for a few challenges and I used the sketch over at The Deconstructed Sketch as my layout inspiration;

Here is what I came up with;

I have distressed the edges of the DP a little with sandpaper and a smidge of TH Distress Ink in Frayed Burlap then added the stitching.

OK, you may have noticed that I was slightly naughty and left off the bow but I just couldn’t make it look right.  Plus, if I faffed around with it any longer when we were supposed to be leaving for the aforementioned afternoon tea then Dr Hubby might have started divorce proceedings…

I used a sweet Tiddly Inks image called Wryn – Fairy Friends and coloured it with Copics.

Card recipe;
DP: Maja Design Vintage Spring Basics
Sentiment: Amy R stamp set
Flowers: from stash
Pearl brad: from Wild Orchid Crafts

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges;

1) The Deconstructed Sketch (#97)

2) Tiddly Inks (distress, emboss or stitch)

3) In the Pink (let’s fly away)

4) Bunny Zoe (fave colour combo)

5) Sweet Stampin’ (pastels)

In breaking news I have my fingers crossed for a trip to Ikea this week to buy a new craft desk – woohoo! I will keep you posted…

Thanks for visiting,


Kat xx
