Fairy Tale In the Woods

Hi every body!

Well The weather is FAB today! Hope you all had a great weekend up to now! Well I had 2 of my Granddaughters for Friday evening and then the other 1 stayed for the rest of the weekend and did we had fun! We were crafting making jewelry and painted nails. Just all the nice girly things!

Across at Hobbycutz we have a lovely new 
Create Your Own Background!

We have a fantastic sponsor for this fortnight! 

Well here is my take on this lovely digital Image from 
Crafts and Me

Well I had real fun to create this 1! 
I used White Card stock as my base
and created my folds and cuts
I took my lazer cut images and my stamped images, measured them
and calculated my my folds and cuts
I really wanted depth with this card

Close Up

I took a Sheet of very good quality paper and
started to use my distress inks
to create my main back ground
Tim Holtz Distress Inks:
Old Paper, Peeled Paint and Broken China

I used a lovely little stamp set to create my background

Stamped randomly with 3 different coloured distress inks the leaves
and the grass bits at the bottom

Then measured and cut the back ground into 3 pieces

Glued to the main card and scored,
made the valley and mountain folds and cut were needed

I used "Fairy Tails" from Crafts and Me
She is so lovely!
After I coloured her in I cut and shaped my image to create dimention
I used lumps of SILICON to glue her down and in the front
at her feet directly onto the paper and took
the grass stamp and stamped grass over the glued area
to give the elision of the Image is part of the back ground

Promarkers used:
Vanilla, Ivory, Blush, Sunkissed Pink,
Mango, Bright Orange, Moss, Pear Green, 
Cocoa and Tan
I added these fab Lazer Cuts from Hobbycutz
to create a tree or bush behind the Image

Stamped all the tree stumps and masked some to create a bigger tree
Stamped the lovely flowers and again masked and made bigger flower bushes
Cut the stamped image out and used again lumps of silicon for dimension
This lovely Window is another FAB lazer cut and the fairy too
I added on top of the Tree trunk to create a base for my window
Above the window I added this lovely Bird on a Swirl, but glued it only on l-side
so that it could hang over the folded edge
Promarkers Used 
Tree Trunks: 
Burnt Sienna, Caramel, Tan and Vanilla

Pear Green, Olive Green, Moss, Marsh Green
Lipstick Red Berry Red, Canary,
Mango & Bright Orange

I love the mushroom post box and 
the little mouse trying to post his letter!
After I coloured my images in I cut and shaped it and used lumps
of siklicon hanging over the 2 folds

Promarkers Used
Poppy, Lipstick Red, Cocoa, Tan
and Vanilla

Greenery and Ladybug:
Moss, Pear Green and Berry Red

Sandstone, Vanilla, Sunkissed Pink,
Denim blue, Aegean, Powder Blue
and Berry Red

I added another Bird with The Swirl to the r-hand side of this fold
And a few more Birds and Lazer cut Leaves

Well here is a photo taken from the side
