September fairy from Chocolate Baroque

Good morning folks, a warm welcome and a big thank you for visiting today. I'd like to say a big hello to my new followers, as soon as I get a minute I'll be visiting your blogs too but work has been so hectic for the past couple of weeks I don't seem to have had a minute. Today's card features one of the gorgeous new stamps from Chocolate Baroque's Autumn Fairies collection. 

I adore fairy stamps and Glenda's new stamps have a wonderful mixture of silhouettes and some images that are perfect for colouring too (as well as that adorable pussy cat and some scrummy foliage stamps)

Autumn Fairy Collection Unmounted Rubber Stamp sheet - DL Multibuy

I've coloured the fairy from September with Graph'It markers, added some glamour dust to her wings and die cut her with nesties. The background was made with distress inks on linen card, stamped with the gorgeous fern foliage stamp

I coloured some seam binding ribbon with the leftover ink, added some lace and a paper flower to finish off.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
A & T Emerald Faeries: Magical creatures
Bunny Zoe's: something blue
Crafty Cardmakers: winged things
Papertake Weekly: make it sparkle
Sparkles Forum: fairies and/or butterflies
Tuesday throwdown: things with wings

Thanks so much for visiting today, hope to see you again soon

  3. I love the way her wings extend over the edge of the die-cut image panel & the two tone wings you've given her. The background is delightful & really evokes the sense of an ethereal fairy glen.
