There's a fairy at the bottom of my garden.....

and her name is Wendy Woo...... OK so I know the words to song are really "there's a worm at the bottom of my garden and his name is Wiggly Woo..." but for some reason I couldn't stop singing my version of it whilst making this card. I drove myself and everyone else in the house nuts with it :/ but hey it got the job done! So can you guess what this weeks challenge over at Polka Doodles is? Yep it's Fairies, Flitter & Fantasy. I do hope that you'll come and play with us, remember you don't need to use a Polka Doodles image, but we'd love it you did! Also you could win yourself some new stash.

This is what I've come up with this week - it's a stepper card with masses of cut out images (I sooo need to treat myself to a Craft Robo, there was way too much hand cutting involved in this card!) 


I started out by printing out the fairy and foliage from the All Around & Everywhere CD and the watering can, window & door (which is the window with the shutters chopped off) from the new Studio 12 Picknix Heavenly Garden Kit. I then coloured the images with Promarkers. Because I needed masses of foliage and believe it or not I do have something that resembles a life outside of crafting, I cheated and scanned the coloured image in and then printed out several flipped and resized copies. I then set about the gargantuan task of cutting everything out :/


The images are assembled onto a simple stepper card base using glue and pop dots (yes I really needed to add more dimension to the piece!). I'm not sure that my pictures show the Stickles on the wings or the Glossy Accents on the glass window - so you'll have to use your imagination.

Right that's me done for this week, so thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic weekend. I'm off to the Craft Barn on Sunday and I'm hoping to catch up albeit it briefly with the lovely Nikky Hall. If you spot me there, come and say "Hi".

  7. You must have the patience of a saint - that Craft Robo (I keep wanting to call them Robo Cop's for some reason!) is a very much needed tool in your case I reckon!

    Absolutely gorgeous, do you envision these in your head and just go from there or do they come together as you are doing them? Amazing stuff.
