This week over on Make My Monday (remembered the link this week) the theme is Fairy's or Angels, now I am not a big fairy or angel lover, so knowing that I didn't have any stamps suitable for the theme I had a good look around the internet and sent my order off. Not quiet sure what happened but I am still waiting! So I started hunting through my stash to see if there was anything I could use and came upon a very old Christmas stamp that had been used once and put away, but there on top of some parcels was a fairy.
I do not know the name of the stamp as I put all my Christmas stamps into one box years ago. I stamped her up with black archival ink and coloured her in with watercolour pencils, you can see in the close up that the card had a weave to it that I hadn't noticed until I started colouring. I then added glitter glue to her shoes, the bottom of her dress and the holly. The sentiment is from a very old set I got about 5 years ago and still use ever year, I stamped it then cut it out and added pom pom ribbon to look like snowballs.
You can see the glitter on her wings and dress a lot better in this photo also the small charm hanging from her hand.
Please go and have a look at what my team mates had been doing this week as there are some stunning cards, and if you feel inspired have a go along with us.
Thanks for reading,
