A Little LOTV Fairy Grotto!

Hello! How are things!

Wow what an amazing spell of weather we are enjoying in the UK! Love it!  Hope it’s good where you are!

Today I wanted to share a card I made to join in with the current LOTV Monthly Challenge which is Fairies!

Now the gorgeous stamps I have used have been retired which is a great shame as I think they are stunning! But because they will no longer be available I managed to snag them for a super bargain price! J

 So what did I do? Well my idea (heaven help me) was to create a fairy grotto! Hmmmm, not too sure I managed it! Maybe it’s more Fairy Grotty, I hope not!!! Either way I wanted to use all three of these fabulous fairies so this is what I came up with!

I coloured onto Desert Storm card stock with Spectrum Noir pencils and blending solution! It may not be too obvious (curse my dodgy photography) but I cut each of the fairies an extra pair of wings from acetate and glittered the edges!

Stamps: ‘Destiny’s Moon’, ‘Autumn Calling’ & ‘Candlelight’ from LOTV
Dies: Tonic frame from ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment set
Punches:  Tonic ‘Petal Pairs’ – Martha Stewart ‘Large Leaf Branch’
Paper/Card: LOTV ‘Country Lady’ – Kanban gold sheen – Crafters Companion ‘Desert Strom’
Colouring/Ink: Spectrum Noir Pencils – Blending Solution
Others: LOTV sentiment - Crystal glitter - Stickles - Glitter gems & stones from stash

 Thanks so much for looking and have a great evening!
See ya!

Colourful hugs
Jane xx
