fairies in the Stamp Attic

Well, that was the plan!
It wasn't until I spoke to Wendy yesterday that I realised that the first two cards I 'd made using the fairyland stamp set didn't feature fairies at all!  Duh!!  But stay tuned, as fairies are on their way, I promise!!!

This ATC was made using the Radio Times, Adirondack Colour Wash in Stream and a Lake Mist acrylic dabber.  I printed the quote off the computer and stamped the nest on off-white card before cutting it out.  All materials, apart from the Radio Times ;), are available from the Stamp Attic!

I sketched this card design out last week and am really pleased with how it's come out.  EDIT: [The card is against a background of painted Radio Times paper to make the photo look a bit more interesting ;)] I didn't let my lack of nestabilities stop me making an oval with a scalloped border!  I printed an oval shape in Word and used it as a template then drew the scallops by hand with a white gel pen.  The background to the bird was made in the same way as I often do the backgrounds in my journals, and again features the Radio Times :) .   The background paper is a Daisy Bucket design called 'In the Meadow' and I used the swiss dots EF with my cuttlebug for the top section.

I love how vintagey these images are! Don't forget to watch out for the fairies...coming soon :)
