Morning all, time for our new challenges at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations where our themes are 'In my Garden' and 'Make it Magical". Still slow going here, think my MS nurse and physio are trying to install some sense of reality when they arrive with new walking aids (I did send he zimmer frame packing). And this week a folding mobility scooter is arriving, seven weeks of not leaving the house and reason has prevailed......it did present quite a challenge finding one that folds small enough for an MX5 boot.....I've driven one for years and see no reason why that should change just because my body's having a hissy fit.
There's a real treat in store for winners at both challenges, not that our prizes aren't always fabulous, at WLS there are two prizes, an A4 AALL and Create stamp set and also a stencil from them and at SS the prize is three stamp sets from Fairy Hugs also available here in the UK from Julia (she also sells a good range of A&C stamps at competitive prices).
The background of the top card has Oxide sprays with a good helping of water to allow the ink to run down the page and I concentrated the yellow in the centre to allow me to add a circle mask which I inked round to make it pop. Then lots of stamping with both old and new Lavinia stamps to create a scene.
I'll let you choose where it is, could be the far end of the garden/top paddock where there's a natural pond which the Fairies love to frolic around when they think we're not watching, or could be or could be the actual secluded secret garden which we created years ago. The side french doors open into a very quiet area where we have a hot tub but you have to be very quiet to see them there and usually only at dusk.......well don't we all have Fairies somewhere in the garden?
More Lavinia, again old and new combined in a triptych created with my most expensive die....a large Monsoon dinner plate and scissors, stamped onto an Oxide background. I think this is definitely down by the post where the Fairies hideout and live happily side by side with the Moorhens (who currently have four chicks) and other wildlife. I wonder what the little Mouse will find at the top of the Fairy ladder? Yes, I defo live in a Fantasy world and guess I always have.
Have a a lovely weekend everyone.
