Fairies and Gnomes come out to play.

I have been having a play with last two stamps that I bought in the 'Willowby Woods Collection' by Creative Expressions. 
 This one is called Toadstool Turret which I inked up and stamped onto watercolour card.   The two gomes are freebies from a magazine set that by careful masking and positioning I added to the toadstool. All coloured using my Graph'it marker pens and edge with a silver gel pen. The sentiment is from the same freebie gnome set. A Gnome is not just for christmas as this will be a New Home card. 

 Entering into the following challenges:
Not Just Cards # Anything goes.
Ally's Angels #29 Anything goes.
Crafting With An Attitude #58 Anything goes.
Crafter's Castle # 24 Anything goes.
Craft Stamper # Anything goes.
Love To Craft #41 Anything goes.
Stamping Sensations # Anything goes with stamping.

The second stamp is called  'Oak Hollow.' Again I have stamped the tree onto watercolour card first and then added the hare and the fairies on top. The small fairies are by Lavinia Stamps. The large fairy and the sentiment were  part of freebie sets in different magazines Th hare came from a set from Crafts Beautiful magazine. All coloured with my Graph'it pens and a silver gel pen. Then finished with silver glue for the added sparkle.

Entering into the following challenges.
2 Crafty Critter Crazies # Anything goes with a critter.

Tuesday Throwdown #446 Anything goes.
Crafty Creations #404 Anything goes.

Kathleen said...

Well you are really asking for trouble with these two lovely cards. Gnome's, toadstool, fairies, could be a bad reaction from L'th, jealously is not very nice.

So cute! i deliberately bought a pre-loved Gnome stamp this week from FB in the hope that I can finally enter one of your lovely challenges after such a time. Don't hold yer breath but I'll certainly try!

Dudley has been for his night time 'wee' in the hammering rain and is soaking wet - am currently chasing him around the house with a fluffy towel .......... in a futile attempt to dry him off before an early night to bed. Little tinker!
