A Fairy Wonderland

It's been an age since I last played with any fairy stamps and after having bought new ones, I thought I'd better ink them up, especially when I noticed that a number of people are entering the Lavinia Stamps Challenge this week. The theme for the challenge is spring colours. I meant for this card to be bright and breezy but that sneaky black soot ink pad keeps putting itself under my new mini applicators. (Lovin' the ink minis and sponges, they look so neat sat on the desk in my room and they are fab to use too)

Anyway the spring colours are in there but this work of art is meant to represent a lovely late spring evening (honest!)

Hope it suits the challenge.

I'm also entering it for the Fantasy Stampers Challenge as I've used silhouette images

Sending special wishes to those of you who have left such lovely comments. They are and have been a big warm fuzzy feeling amongst some pretty dark hours.

X Michelle
