New and cute....eeeek



Time for our new challenge at Allsorts where Mervi would like to see'New and Cute' creation, our sponsor is Cuddly Buddly.

As always the word 'cute' fills me with dread, but a challenge is what it's all about and I am hoping my fairies will count as cute, or at least cute'ish. I bought the Lavinia fairy carriage and quote at the NEC in November and this was their first outing, all stamped in black archival and the background and sky usings torn paper for the hills, a mask for the sun and my usual Pan Pastels. The branches and flowers across the top of my scene are also Lavinia and I just love this Lavinia quote, then the fairy wings, wisteria and carriage curtains have a little glitter added, well you can't have a fairy and no glitter now can you.

Happy weekend all.

The comment about "cute filling you with dread" made me laugh :) lovely card x

Sarah said...

I did wonder what you would do with this theme Brenda and I think we can safely say that fairies are cute (the "tidy" fairy that lives with us most certainly is...ahem!!) and in fairyland those tiny horses would be cute too!! So you've nailed it!! xx

Mervi said...

Truly cute and adorable card, fabulous fairy fantasy.
Happy weekend;-))m

Sammy said...

There has absolutely got to be a law that say fairy wings have to have glitter. I'm certain of it! ;-)
Love this card Brenda, it's beautiful! x

Craftyfield said...

Brenda you've created a lovely scene! Don't know about cute, as I'm no specialist or fan of cute myself! Love the quote... xx

Good morning Brenda
This challenge is right up my street. I love cute images so will definitely be entering this challenge. Your card is beautiful as always, the colours are stunning and yes I think fairies can be classed as cute.
Enjoy your day. I hope it isn't too windy in your area.

A lovely fairytale card Brenda.
You seem to have been banished from my reading list as I have missed the last creation (awesome by the way!) - have signed in again!
Hope things are OK with you. xx

Marianne said...

'Cute' may not be the first word that pops up in my mind, but those fairies are definitely sweet, as is your card, so I think you're safe LOL. I hope you have been able to recuperate from your eventful holidays and am hoping 2015 will be uneventful as far as your health is concerned. My husband and I started the new year off with severe colds but the worst is over now.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Beautiful and magical are the words that popped into my mind as soon as I saw this Brenda, the softness of the colour is so perfect for the silhouette stamps, awesome design.
