Secret Crafters - Clean & Simple

Wey-Hey for the weekend & double bonus for me as I am officially now on leave & we go on holiday on Monday. Can't wait, boy do I need a break!!

So it's Saturday & another fab challenge at Secret Crafters, this weekend chosen by my lovely D-Teamie, Kelly. She wants us to have a go at


this week. Not a style I'm very comfortable in to be honest. But it is something I want to try more of as CAS cards always look so elegant.

So I used Lavinia stamps for this card. As clean & simple as it is, it took me ages to come up with an image I was happy with as I kept overloading it with images or getting ink where I didn't want to! The background is created with Adirondack inks, of which Wendy has a good selection here. I stamped the fairy in black Versafine then used Adirondack Eggplant for the other silhouettes. I added a little liquid pearls in places to try & make it look like the moonlight was catching the plants. Finally I glittered the moon & anywhere I'd put stars for a little extra fairy magic!

So there you go. There is not much else to say really. But I must remind you that this is your last opportunity to join us this month & hence you last opportunity to be in with a chance of winning our monthly prize sponsored by the fabulous people at The Stamping Boutique

So whatever you are up to, I hope everyone has a fabulous Bank Holiday Weekend & that wherever you are, the sun shines on you at least once!!

Thanks so much for looking,
Big Hugs,
Andie xx

Fabulous Andie. The use of the liquid pearls really do make it look like moonshine and you've used just the perfect amount of stamps. Hugs, Lesley
