Magical Fairy Garden

Hello All!
I am the hostess at The Sisterhood of Crafters today
and I chose the theme of Magical Fairy Garden.
It means you can create anything to do with a fairy garden
or a bit whimsical and magical...just have fun!

For my card I started with a base of sponged on Oxide inks,
using wilted violet, worn lipstick,and broken china.
I spritzed water on, then when dry I added even more shimmer using 
Tattered Angels Iridescent Gold and Cosmos Glimmer Mist.
If you could see this IRL you would see how much shimmer it really has!
I think the photo below shows it a bit better.

For the stamps I treated myself during the winter to several new stamps
from companies that I normally wouldn't purchase from,
reason being is that I am a 'bargain' shopper and usually only buy
what's on sale...pathetic I know!
The unicorn is from PinkFresh Unicorn Dreams.
I stamped it with Dew Drops Rose Bud.
Then I went over the image with Nuvo Glitter Gloss.
This stuff is fabulous, lets you get in tiny places and has a 
sparkle-y glitter sheen!

Though the set came with nice sentiments,
I purchased a Woodware sentiment set called Fantasy Land.
I embossed it in Sparkle N Sprinkle Morning Glory EB powder.
this is one of those EB powders that has glitter added to that!
Both these stamp companies are a first for me.
You will be seeing a few more new stamps from more 
'new to me' companies down the road!

The clouds (IO) I cut from a scrap of glitter paper
and the rainbow (Lawn Fawn) from pastel scraps.

So head on over to The Sisterhood
to see all the wonderful inspiration my  DT 'sistahs'
have to inspire YOU!

This is such an awesome card Diane! Love that unicorn! Great job!

Verna Angerhofer said...

So cute and wonderfully designed. Great colors and shine on it. And, love the sentiment too!

Leslie Miller said...

Oh, STOP! That sentiment!!!!! I'm spewing coffee and laughing out loud! I know Rich wonders what's so funny about stamping blogs, but seriously... I keep scrolling up and laughing all over again. Also, I must say, I've never been into unicorns, but that's the prettiest unicorn I've ever seen, and combined with the sentiment -- hilarious! I love to laugh and this really did it for me. Can't wait to see more new stamps, even if they're not this funny!

Love it! And NOW I see why you chose this theme - this card was brewing all winter and had to be showcased in its perfection! There will be someone who will swoon over this card and then have quite a giggle over the sentiment, just like me! Diane, you just keep treating yourself to the crafty products you want because this card is proof that you know how to make them shine!

Thanks for a magical theme Diane and you inspired me to create my card with a unicorn as yours came out so well! Love that glittery distress inked background especially! Hugs, Gwendolyn

This is SO pretty, Diane. I love all the sparkle you added, it's as lovely as could be. Thanks SO much for sharing it in our challenge. It's always a delight to have you play along.
'n Sprinkle project (a mini album) on my blog today, but I'm not linking it to the Sparkle 'n Sprinkle challenges on Facebook any more. I am guessing they're just tired of my cards since I only use the one stamp set I have. While I enjoy using it, I don't think anyone else is into my cards/projects using it....LOL Anyway, it's on my blog now if you'd like to see it.
