Ladybug Crafts Ink Challenge 46 - Fairy Magic


Before I get started on today's post, a quick thank you to everyone who left such lovely comments on my blog following the new release and our blog hop/blog candy - it was great that the new images went down so well, and I'm not surprised as they are so unique!  If you missed them last week, you can take a peek here

I'd also like to say a huge congratulations to Sue who won my celebration Blog Candy - well done hun!  If you pop an email to the email addy on the challenge blog with Sue's Candy Winner in the title I will get your goodies out to you quick smart :-D

It's the head ladybug, Kerry's turn to set the challenge over at Ladybug Crafts Ink this week, so no slacking allowed :-D

I used Letter to Santa Ruby, and teamed her with some MME Christmas Lost and Found Papers

Oddly, despite not having inked this stamp in a little while, she was picked by at least 2 other members of the DT this week!  She is so sweet, standing on her tippy toes to reach the postbox

She's glittered to within an inch, and I used Frosted Lace stickles to build up the layers of the snow.  I found an ancient snowflake border stamp and decided to give the edges a bit of glitz too. The Personal Impressions sentiment has been embossed with black sparkle embossing powder. 

I found a set of Crafty Individuals stamps the other day that included an air mail stamp and some postmarks etc, so there are little stamps all over this card, hiding amongst the text background :-D

Thanks for stopping by - more tomorrow
