It’s also challenge time with my friends over on the on the CCEE Stampers challenge blog. This week I finish off my month of challenges with one last challenge. Today is 'National Tooth Fairy Day', so for our challenge create a card that features a fairy.

For my card today I have used the Cornish Heritage Farms Spring Flowers Fairy Digital Stamp. I have colored her in using a variety of Faber-Castell products ….. Aquarelle Pencil #104; May Green Stampers Big Brush Pen both from the Mixed Media Aquarelle & Ink: GREEN set. Gelatos from the Blue Gelatos set (Cotton Candy and Grape); Green Gelatos set (Pistachio) and the Red Gelatos set (Guava; Lavender and Bubblegum).

For the background I used Cornish Heritage Farms Gingham Backgrounder stamp. I stamped this onto white card using versamark ink and then white embossed it. I then used colors from the Red Gelatos set (Guava; Lavender and Bubblegum) and randomly applied these over the background and blended them in using my fingers.

Stamps: Spring Flowers Fairy Digital Stamp; Gingham Backgrounder – Cornish Heritage Farms
Paper: White; Pink; Purple
Other: Gelatos Red Pack; Gelatos Blue Pack; Gelatos Green Pack (Faber-Castell); MFT Die-namics Jumbo Banner Stax; MFT Die-namics Fishtail Flags Stax; Button; Twine; Foam Tape
