Dandelion Fairies


These two lovely Fairies are overlooking their field of dandelions. At midnight thousands of fairies emerge from the dandelions and twinkle and sparkle as they flitter  around. Some of them fly away and grant wishes for special,people, while others stay in the field and play and create magic. 


A sideways view of the card, the wings fold inwards so it fits in the envelope!

I watercoloured the background and stamped and heat embossed the dandelions and the lovely sentiment.

Thank you Fairy much for visiting us today.

I would like to share this with the following challenges.

Lake District Card


It's my sister's birthday at the end of this month, so of course I wanted to make her a special card.For the last 30 years or more she has taken two walking holidays in the Lake District every year. So when I saw Crafty Individuals new stamps of a church, and country cottage, I thought they would be perfect to create a Lake District type of scene in a  3 D  card.



I stamped and watercoloured the images, and coloured them with my very favourite medium which is of course Watercolours! I also die cut trees, branches etc and watercoloured them too.


This is the card folded down ready  to fit in the envelope.

I think she will like it, at least I hope she does!

Thank you for visiting today xx

I love the new Victorian Garden Stamp set by Indigoblu. It has gorgeous flowers, beautiful butterflies, two sentiments, and a bumble bee! It has quickly become a favourite of mine !

I enjoyed making this twiggy frame to display these gorgeous stamps. All the details of how I created this are on the Indigoblu blog

The Mad Inventor

Mr Herbert Bumblewaite is known locally as "the mad inventor" as he is always collecting whatnots to make some sort of contraption with. On a crisp Autumn morning he decided to test out his latest invention which was his flying contraption.......

All the details of how I made this little Autumnal scene can be found on the Indigoblu Blog

Thank you for flying by, if you bump into Herbert on your travels could you please send him home!

I made this before my operation, and the good news I am getting movement back in my finger, and I am excercising it well so I hope to be back to crafting very soon.I miss it!

Crafting at Alexandra Palace

The view over London was a bit misty.

Myself and my Mother went to the Craft Show Ally Pally yesterday. it was very, very cold quite a change from the last few hot humid days!

We decided to go so I could meet the Indigoblu team.I was a little nervous to meet them, but Kay, Jenny and Alfie were all so lovely and very kind, hugs all round! I tend to worry that maybe the things I make are not good enough, especially when compared to all of the talented artists out there.

They were very complimentary about my little whatnots, so I feel reassured that I am doing them justice. I am so very lucky and honoured to be on their International Design Team.


With Kay
 
 

With Jenny.
I also met up with the lovely Sue who has recently joined the Indigoblu team, but we both forgot to take photos!
 
 


Here you can see the beautiful Rose stained glass window in the hall.
It was very, very busy in the hall!
 

The Indigoblu stand was wonderfully busy with all of the Indigoblu fans.
My favourite canvas by Elizabeth Robinson was on display
(near the top right in the photo)
 

Gorgeous works on show!
 
 

My Indigoblu goodies I bought.
 

I really enjoyed seeing the very talented Sandra's work on the Inkylicious stand.

 

There was a stand there called "Every Craft a Pound" I couldn't get close but my mum struggled in and got some goodies for me which I had spotted from afar! A frame, chipboards, foam pads, cards!

I won't be able to use my goodies for a while, as this Tuesday I am having an op on a finger on my right hand (I am right handed), but I will be thinking up all sorts of ideas for when I can craft again, which will hopefully be soon.

Wild Poppy Meadow Box

I couldn't bear to throw out this lovely little biscuit box, so I decided to cover it with decoupage papers. I used Wildflower Woods Paperpatch. I always use PVA glue with my decoupage, it is much less expensive than the special decoupage glue and seems to work ok for me.

My favourite flower is the wild poppy, and Crafty Individuals Poppy Meadow Stamp fitted perfectly on the front of the box ! I used watercolours to colour the image.

For a finishing touch I put some lace along the side of the lid. This lace had a double sided tape already on it, which was helpful!

I am going to give this to my sister for Easter, ....... I better find something nice to put in it first !

Thank you so much for visiting.
