How Fairy Tales were really written....


Over on Rainbow Lady's blog the challenge this week was 'magical and mysterious'. I have had this stamp for a while and thought it could be used to interpret the magical world of fairy tales. I'm not sure if it really fits in with the theme but have linked it anyway!

Several different colours were used to ink the background, then the gold lettering stamped and embossed. I added lace, a star brad to hold the tag and a fabric flower. The words are from the 'Once Upon a Time' paper stack.

  1. I love your recent work. The monochrome piece is terrific. I never think to work in black and white, or neutrals generally. I love the way they look, though.

    Just noticed that the word verification here is chuff!
