Time for our latest challenge at Stamping Sensations and this month we have the theme of Butterflies, Fairies and Fantasy - a lot of scope there for you and I hope you will come and join us as there's a fab prize on offer - if you pop across to the blog you will see the goodies!
We are a stamping challenge so stamping has to be the focal point of your entry!
I went for inkiness this month as I have been having a bit of an inkfest as can be seen from my previous posts!
I used a mask for the moon and began dusting on my colour - Broken China DI all across my piece of card and then layered over it Stormy Sky.

Mountains were done with a mask and Salty Ocean DI then I moved the mask down a bit and applied some Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserve - leaving the original Broken China  base layer showing at the bottom.
After taking away the moon mask I dusted lightly over it to take away the stark white card - think perhaps I should have done a bit more but hey ho!

Versafine Black ink used for all the stamps - the bottom meadow border stamp I think was a freebie but am not sure! If it was I likely only bought the mag because I wanted it.
The trailing vines were also a freebie and I know I DEFINITELY only bought the mag to get the set!
I shadow stamped these and was really happy with the result.
A little bit of Black Soot sponged round all the edges to hopefully give a smoky effect. 

The fairy was from a set of fantasy stamps that I have had for ever. She looked a little bit like she should have had something in her hands so I used a teeny Inkylicious stamp and gave her a few flowers!
Some glamour dust on her wings, flowers and the bottom of her skirt with a little bit more on the flowers beneath her.
Quite pleased with this as fairies (and making scenes!) are not normally my thing.

Am off for a week now on my President's Internal Tour so have a great week and will catch up with you all soon!x

Just lovely Viv, super inking of the background and the pretty Fairy drifting through the air.

Fingers crossed for later, we need three so it's in our own hands.

This is beautiful Viv and I think our ideas were quite similar using the mountains and the Sun. I really like the blue and purple colours together, they're a perfect combination. Happy crafting, Sandra x

I've never attempted to make such an inked scene, but at least I've started making cloudy skies and inked hills, separately for now. But love this look and hope I can make something like this myself some time in the future.

This is gorgeous Viv and you would definitely never know that normally you don't do much of this sort of thing. The colours are beautiful and love the freebie stamps which work really well here with the pretty fairy. Hope your tour is going well. x

You should make more fairy cards, Viv, she's gorgeous! The flowers and leaves frame her perfectly, and of course she had to have a posy! Beautiful card!
