Fairy and Dove


I have my first craft fair next Wednesday and really need to get more Mother's Day and Easter cards made. I was out all day yesterday but am intending to spend most of today crafting so should get a few made.

I bought some new LOTV stamps at the end of last year and with so many Christmas cards to make this is the first chance I have had to use some of them. She is holding the dove so tenderly isn't she. She has been coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and I have used stickles on her wings, Sakura clearstar pen on the flowers and dress and Viva Decor pearl pen. The papers are MME Blush and I have used DI Antique Linen. I have long admired the Marianne fence die and when I saw it for sale on Facebook snapped it up. I have also used MB bird and dragonfly dies.
Challenges
