Fairy Hanger.

Hi everyone,
 
I think, finally my mojo is slowly returning. With the Christmas break and then I started my family scrapbook, I lost my direction. I knew I had to start making stock for my markets but couldn't get going. I also think the dark, miserable days we are having, certainly are not helping. Can't wait for Spring.
 
Then thankfully, Lili of the Valley had a sale! Yippee! They have another one at the moment. These are two of the stamps I bought. I already had the small canvas boards, which I bought from The Craft Barn, as a set of three.
 
 
 
This first stamp is Fairy With Dove. I really liked her but was amazed just how gorgeous she is, when painted. I used Distress Inks on watercolour board, 350gsm. Their wings and dresses have a touch of Stickles Star Dust on them. Also I used Liquid Pearls on the dress.


The next board is a saying I found online. The author is unknown. 


The next stamp is Forever Friends. These two are so cute. I love the one on the right is wearing her wellies.
 
Lili of the Valley never fail, in giving us beautiful stamps. I felt that there was no need for any embellishments, as the images are strong enough on their own.
 
I used a fine white ribbon to tie them all together. I couldn't get the ribbon at the top in the picture, or you wouldn't be able to make out what it was!Lol!!
 
 
 
I have already started my next project. Guess what?!! These two fairy stamps will feature again!
 
Well off to bed now. I have been very naughty and not going to bed until 2am. On Sunday, I didn't wake up until 10.45am!! I think I needed to catch up, as 4 or 5 hours a night are not really enough.
 
Thank you for taking time to visit. I love reading your comments. They brighten the day, as the weather certainly doesn't! The thunder storm has just thankfully stopped.
 
I have entered this into Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge - Anything LOTV goes.
 
Hugs,
 
Carol S.xx

This is just gorgeous and I agree about LOTV stamps but after having purchased many I need to use them....they end up rather costly after converting to AU dollars. Your hubby is from Melbourne did you mention once? Does he miss the climate here as Melbourne weather has changed and been very hot, my Daughter lives there,xx

Hi Carol,
I totally agree with you, these dark, wet and miserable days don't inspire me either and I'm praying for Spring to arrive soon.

Your hanging is simply gorgeous. The images are so pretty, coloured in the prettiest of shades, they need no other embellishments. I think anything else would detract the eye.

Fabulous project, I think your mojo is well and truly back.

Big hugs
Elaine xx
