Sprinkled With Fairydust

I love the warm colours on this months Chocolate Baroque Challenge and have had them sat on my desk for a few days now. When I saw Claire's inspiration card over on the blog this week it reminded me that I had these stamps in the back of the cupboard and it's been a long time since they came out to play.

So after a bit of a rummage this is what I came up with. My card base is A5 with the topper made slightly smaller. With distress inks in Spiced Marmalade, Mustard Seed, Worn Lipstick and Barn Door, I used my brushes to achieve the background sky and hills. Next with black onyx and stamps from various sets I created my scene. The sentiment is from a set that I can't find on the website but included similar sayings to the one on the card. I added Wink Of Stella in clear to the wings and lifted the colour from the toadstools at the bottom and coloured with a white opaque pen.

Thanks for taking the time to look and your kind comments which are always appreciated.

Beautiful take on the colour challenge Sue! I have to say this one is a bit out of my comfort zone but that's not a bad thing ;-).

Your scene is so pretty and actually quite calming using softer tones of the original colours. I love it!
