Fairy Magic


Good afternoon ladies hope your all well I have one card to share with you and as I couldn't find a pretty paper to match I decided to create my own with a swirly stamp,black chalk inkpad and embossing powder.Its not a colour I usually would choose I love to use pinks and purples usually but from time to time I like to drag myself out of my comfort zone with the help of challenge colours and themes.
Sorry for the short post but I have to pop out in a little while and then cook dinner so I will try and post again soon.
The challenges I am entering this card into are:

colour create-orange,black,cream
Crafts and me-Sparkle(glitter on her wings)
Polka doodles-monocramatic
Prairie Fairie-Distress(inked edges)
Secret Crafter-Distressing
Quixotic-Distressing
Papertake weekly-do something different(made my own backing paper)
Thanyou for popping over.
Hugs
Lorraine xx

Lorraine don't take this the wrong way but your cards just keep getting more beautiful (not that they weren't great before). I can see a change in your style from when you started blogging 4 months ago. YOU GO GIRL. This card is stunning. The beautiful background, amazing colouring and just the right amount of sparkle on her wings. :-) xx

This is a fabulous card Lorraine, I love how you've coloured her and making your own papers was a wonderful idea as it all works together so well. Perfect.
I have to say I agree with Poppet and please don't take it the wrong way, it's meant like Poppets comment, as a compliment.
I started my blog just a couple of days ago, so I feel a bit like I'm drowning! I've no idea what I'm doing yet, but hopefully I will get the hang of it soon.
