Under a creative spell

Taking a Sentimental journey back to my childhood days... - #29, DT card

Hello Peeps!

Hope you had a good weekend!

Just wanted to pop here quickly to let you know about this week's Sentimental Challenge ;) This week's theme is "childhood". It's up to you how you interpret it as long as you remember to include a sentiment!

I needed to make a birthday card for my niece (the one on the picture on the fluffy lavender heart). OMG, I really struggled with this one as I am rubbish at children's cards... I also really wanted to incorporate this week's theme...and as a result is ran disgracefully late for the challenge! I know, shame on me! Oh well...

So here's my card. I wanted to take myself back to the days when I used to believe in fairies...oh those were the days! :) Having said that, my DH and I believe there are fairies in our house, especially when the washing up seems to get secretly done...lol ;) So anyway, I wanted to try and bring that slighlty magical and sparkly feeling back...

The fairy is a digital stamp, can't remember where I got it from, coloured with brush markers and highlighted with glitter glues, accompanied by some traditional hand stamping and my fav distress inks ;).

It's a gatefold card (hence entering JUGS #59) tied up with a ribbon with "happy birthday" wording on it. I used it as an embellie and a sentiment at the same time, how's that for multitasking lol ;). Also entering Stamp Something - Nov Somehing digi.

Thanks for looking and your sweet comments ;) xxx.

Joanna this is gorgeous!!!! I'm sure your niece will love it! You've done such a lovely job with the whole scene - love the distress inks. They create such a beautiful glow around the fairy! You made me a believer :)

Great take on the gate fold challenge! Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls!

Oh how pretty Joanna! The colors are lovely, and the background turned out gorgeous! Of course I love faeries too. Sure wish they would come in and secretly do my cleaning when they're done with yours. lol

So beautiful and whimsical, I am sure your niece will LOVE it!

What a pretty image! Your colouring is lovely!

This is beautiful, the background has a wonderful glow to it.

As for the faeries, keep on believing :)

Joanna, this is lovely! You colored it so beautifully. Thank you for adding it to the post.

beautiful colouring, it really glows Joanna.

Beautiful card Joanna, really magical & I love the colours :)

Beautiful image - what a lovely card for your niece. I DO believe in fairies - they DO wash up my dishes or laundry occasionally :-))))

Thanks for trying the JUGS' technique challenge this week! :-)
