Southern Girls Get Stuck!

Just realised that my title sounds like a newspaper headline where they hint at something that actually turns out to have little or nothing to do with the actual story!
You'll have to judge for yourself.

There's a new theme for the Southern Girls, 
For this one, team Lou would like to see you use
 "Sticky things" on your projects. I chose to use a selection of Washi tape on mine, along with a few sequins. 

I chose to use a selection of Washi tape on mine, along with a few sequins, I added some stitching along the thin tapes using my pattern tool, it's hard to see but it adds a little something when you see it up close! The image I used this time is  "So happy" by Ppinky dolls, one of the sponsors this time, she's a little cutie!

Not that the little one looks "So Happy" I have to say though that the idea of being on a swing makes me feel happy, I hope it's making her smile on the inside! I printed the image then added a branch to hang the swing from, I meant to add some doodles knots but forgot I'm afraid, I'm getting forgetful in my old age.

 Please check out the challenge blog for full details of all the sponsors this time.

 I'm using this card in the following challenges:-
QKR248 Anything goes, faux stitching/quilting,
CTD447, Color throwdown,
CSD, Summer.

Hidden Fairy

Ok, who saw where May went, anyone see it going? How time flies!
So now we find ourselves in June, 
new month, new Lavinia challenge theme!
The Theme this month is
Haha, I found this tricky to start with, maybe it's spending so much time with young children, have you seen how they hide? Did you realise that if you cover your eyes that no one can see you?
Anyway, here are my samples for this month.

For my first card, I created my background using 
Oxide Inks, I just love how they give you something special to work on! I noticed that the inks had given me almost a pool of light so I utilised this by using a circular aperture to first stamp my wings  then placing Creeping vine to continue the circle feel. I then stamped the Dragon Pods and Fairy Buds to lead the eye down the invisible path painting them with oxides to add colour and adding white gel pen. I inked the landscape flicked on some water then stamped a little Tree just because. 

No automatic alt text available.

Onto  my second card I stamped  Eden who is is hiding in the flower bed with her friend Mr Snail, I still find it hard to believe that this perfect little fellow is only £1!
My fussy cut flowers were created using one of the
 Zen flowers placed on a Fairy bud stem.

I'm using this card for the following challenges:-
CCC88, Include an animal,
DDC June, Creatures great and small,
Scrap n challenge, Make your own background.
