I was so pleased that Dragon had launched a new tag challenge, but I have to confess that when I read that this weeks was 'Fairy's at the bottom of the garden' my heart sank. I just don't 'do' fairy's so my first challenge was to make something 'fairyish' that I liked.
After spending a sum closely resembling the national debt on CD's, pretty papers, templates etc, I have finally come to realise that I actually prefer stamping best. Will this stop me buying all the other stuff?... ugh ugh, but at least I have self realisation lol.
Anyway, back to the fairies...
The stamp is by Paper Artsy, and if the challenge had been 'angels' this is the stamp I would have used, but today they are fairys. I've stamped the Tim Holtz tree onto my tag, then painted in the background with Twinkling H2O's. The angel-fairys have been coloured with Prisma and Pro Markers, and the wings glittered.
The genuine flower fairy is from one of the above mentioned CD's. I actually cut out about 6 of her, but a fairy clone is way too scary.
I actually quite like my tag, and I certainly enjoyed the challenge which is what it's all about, so I shall be back next week - hoping that it isn't angels...
Thanks very much for looking xx
