Down the bottom of my garden



Morning Peeps, it's Saturday again and time for our new challenge at Allsorts and this week Tracy Mouse is our host and would like us to create without using any design papers. We welcome a new sponsor this week Craft Obsession who are offering a £15 voucher to our lucky winner. 

Despite being a real hoarder and stroker of DP's I don't actually use them as often as I should, but do love creating my own backgrounds be they vivid and inky or softer tones with Pan Pastels which is what I have used on this one along with a circle mask for the moon and torn paper for the hills.

So this is a little scene which if you are really quiet you can spot down the bottom of our garden on misty spring and summer mornings.........honestly !! Well doesn't everyone have Fairies at the bottom of their gardens ?

The arch shaped triptych card has been created with dies and the little scenes made up with Lavinina and Chocolate Baroque stamps. I even added a little mouse for our Tracy as she so loves them.


I added some soft colour with glitter pens to the teasels, blossoms and Fairy wings and tied the three sections together with eyelets and ribbon.

Many thanks for visiting today and I hope you will join in with our challenge this week.
