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.

  3. 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

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  10. '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!
