Fairy Magic and All Dressed Up!

I love this fairy image from All Dressed Up and would 
you believe that they even have free images!

It's one of those projects that look 200% better in real life.

I recycled a frame with Gesso, pink emulsion paint 
and white Acrylic paint. Finished off with Treasure Gold Gilding Wax.


I used my favourite Distress Inks to colour her with.

It's very strange for me, as I think she is adorable. Yet
when the Magnolia stamps came out, I disliked them
straight away and still do.
I can't even leave a message on someones blog if they
have used them. I did once but did not mention the image!!

Fortunately we all have different tastes. 


Thanks for popping into my blog and hope you like my picture.
Thank you in advance, for leaving me a lovely message
that I do so enjoy reading.

I am going to put her in the 


Big hugs,

Hoppy Easter Bunnies.

Hoppy Easter!!
These are the cards I made for our grand children, well 2 of them.
They have been put in the post and I forgot to take a photo
of the 3rd one!

This one is using the Lili of the Valley stamp I have had for a 
couple of years and never used!
Why not?......Who knows!

                                          

He is so cute and so easy to colour with Distress Inks.


 For this card I used a set of stamps that were free with
a magazine and I can't remember which one.
I can tell you that they are called :
Woodland Hugs, Stamp Collection
by Samantha Chaffey.


This is just one of the adorable stamps and there are 5 big
stamps and one sentiment.
A mixture of Bunnies and Bears.


Off out now to make the most of this glorious weather.
We will probably end the day at the beach for a long walk.

Thanks for popping in and hope it was worth it!!
I love so much to read your messages.

I must also put a big thanks out to all of the 20 people
that left me a message on the blog hop.
Chris, the Artist was so happy with the feedback 
she had for her beautiful Fairy Stamps.
Well deserved I say!!

See ya all soon,
hugs
Carol
