Sketch Saturday 153: Storybook Fairy


Recipe

Happy Saturday! Today I have my Sketch Saturday make to share with you.  We have another fabby sketch by Jo and this week we are being sponsored by one of our regular sponsors, The Craft Barn, who are offering up a prize of 2 Tatty Button stamps to one lucky winner!


I used 2 stamps from the most recent Whimsy Stamps rubber release for my card - Little Fairy Friend and Fairy Toadstools - plus one of the gorgeous Birthday Postage Stamps and the coordinating Postage Stamp die to cut it out!

I wanted to create the look of a page that had been ripped out of a storybook - I hope I suceeded! And so I just had to use the gorgeous 'book' paper from my Crate Paper Emma's Shoppe 6x6 pad for the main background DP (as well as 2 of the other designs in this pad). I got this paper pad from Elaine at Quixotic Paperie, who also stocks the fabulous Whimsy Stamps HERE for those of you in the UK/Europe.

Since recently buying a Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink Pad, I'm afraid I've been attacking most cards with it, LOL, and this one is no exception!  I also used some of the fab YNS Glittered Skittles in the centres of the white and the large yellow flower, plus added some red ones to the dotty horizontal strip - I adore these embellies!
