Fantasy land

Happy Saturday crafters and it's time to share my latest creation for Allsorts challenge where it's my turn to host the theme again.

I am trying my very best to get my head round some crafting but as I am still having to go and have my dressing changed daily I'm finding it really difficult to settle to anything. And the painkillers and other drugs aren't exactly helping and I am totally phased half the time.......could say that's an ideal place to be, but unfortunately one needs to keep in touch with reality as well. I did get a lovely incentive yesterday though when I found out I had won last weeks Stamping For the Weekend challenge and a lovely Sweet Pea stamp. I've had my eye on these for a while so really looking forward to playing with it.

You all know how much I love creating little scenes with my stamps and this week I would like you do the same. It can be as simple or as complex as you like, just have fun and create.

Luckily I made this one a couple of weeks ago ready. I used some of my favourite Lavinia stamps onto a brayered background using Big and Juicy Hydrangea, masking a moon to create some depth to my card. I sponged in some misty clouds and hills and highlighted some of the flowers and leaves with a white pen and some glitter to the fairies wings.
