Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #220 Fairies and Mythical Creatures

Welcome to another challenge at Crafty Cardmakers and Jackie is hosting today's challenge.

The theme of this weeks challenge is 'Fairies or other Mythical Creatures'.  As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece,  some home decor as long as it meets the fairies or other mythical creatures theme.

I decided to use this lovely digital stamp Fairy Child by Morgan Fitzsimmons.  Beautiful stamp and great to colour. The background paper is from a stamp pad titled  Razzell Dazzle I bought at Michaels about a year ago. The flower accessory is from my stash and the image was coloured with Spectrum Noir markers except for the flesh where I used Copics. I printed the stamp out twice, coloured and fussy cut the small digital image flowers from one image and overlayed them on the other.

It has been cold and miserable here in my part of Alberta,  this after a summer that was either really hot, with a sky completely covered with forest fire smoke from BC, or raining. I played horseshoes this summer at our family reunion in Montana USA under a sweltering 109-degree Fahrenheit temperature. All I could think of was cool-cold weather. Now I am complaining of that, so I guess there is no pleasing me šŸ˜Š

Have a great week!
