MAWTT challenge 66 - 'Fairies and Fantasy'

Well this is a completely new style for me, I have played with fairies (I'm often away with the fairies - if you know what I mean), but I have never dabbled with fantasy. I shall have to keep this card for Ken cos it's his favourite genre of reading material and television watching, that mixed with sci-fi.

This week we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear Stamps and you can find so many digital images and papers over at the Stitchy Bear and I Did It Creations Crafting Boutique.

I chose to use one of my friend Stitchy's stamps called Dark Angel. She is just gorgeous and because of her name and the way she looks I chose to keep her on the dark side, but used some bright yellow, mauve, green and turquoise to lift it all. I really enjoyed experimenting with another new style.

I have used Photoshop Elements again to colour in the image and printed it onto photo paper to get a more glossy effect. I used a sketch from Sweet Pea Stamps - I visited their blog to get a feel for how to approach this style. It's certainly different and for the first time I have used black soot for distress edging. I will welcome your comments, please give me the critical friend views, the good and the areas to develop, so that I can look to improve on what I am doing.

Please go over to the MAWTT challenge blog to see what my team mates have been crearing for this fabulous challenge.
Have a good end to the week, I shall be coming home tonight with Mum after we have been out for a meal.

Take care. Luv Brenda xxxxx
