Fairyopolis - POPPY FAIRY

I was blown away when I saw FAIRYOPOLIS on Create & Craft TV. Magnificent and beautiful. 

This Poppy Fairy captured my imagination with its colour of red. Red is my favourite colour. It didn't take me long to print a sheet of beautiful script  backing paper on my modest inkjet printer and a decoupage Poppy Fairy image. 
After having cut out everything, I distressed the paper and  free hand cut  swirls; and glued everything on my square card (square cards are my weakness).
The image was embelished with three pink roses previously distressed with aged mahogony ink.

To conclude with:
Fairyopolis CD from Crafter's Companion
Tim Holtz's Tea Dye, Peeled Paint and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks
Embelishments: Roses

Pets and Bags

I am not a great fashionista, but couldn't resist these lovely pets in nice bags. These stamps come from  one of the latest collections from Design Objectives: PAMPERED PETS.

Both  are very affordable and gave me an enormous pleasure to work with and make nice little cards. DO Crafts products were used entirely through both of the little projects with the exeption of   Promarkers used for colouring.

Blue Lady and Golden Boy share the same principles of card making. After I have stamped the images, coloured them with Promarkers, and  glittered  and mounted them on the square cards layered with different papers.The final touches were some buttons, a flower and a ladybird.
