I believe in Fairies

Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge is grunge.  They left it up to your interpretation. I take that to mean distressing up the project a little. 

I started with this:

 My daughter was using a deck of cards and when she tried to take them out she ripped the box and of course left it lying there after she was done.  I was going to throw it out and then decided to keep it for a future project.

Well when I received my Artistic Outpost stamps I also received this really beautiful set called Neverland with the most adorable Tinkerbell.  I decided she would look so cute in a little shadowbox. So I created this:


The flowers are from another AO set called Bloom and Grow. The little butterflies are actually stamped with Tinkerbell. You can't see it but her face is peeking out on the butterflies. :)

The inks are Memento Bahama Blue, Memento Rich Cocoa, Adirondack Citrus, and Versafine Vintage Sepia.

Hope you have a lovely Saturday. I am hoping to have some inky time! Yeah!

  1. What a fab idea Sue. As soon as I saw the torn package I knew it was going to be a little shadow box but if that had been left lying around in my house I just know I would have thrown it away without a second thought and not seen it's potential.

    The little scene is beautiful! and I love the colours.
