Fairy Tink.....

...............Isn't she gorgeous!
She's from 'The Greeting Farm' (previously known as Pink Poison) and I got her from Roses on Paper - whom I must say provide a fantastic service. I ordered my stamps on Sunday night and they were on my doorstep Friday morning - which is fab. They came from Hawii to South Wales, UK quicker than some companies who are based in this country! Oh, and Summer who runs the company is so friendly - I had a lovely reply to my e-mail thanking her for such a fab service.


On to the card!!!!

I've combined the Truly Scrumptious Challenge with Simon Says Stamp Challenge here. TS was a fab sketch (which did frighten me till I started playing!) and to keep in theme with the prize on offer, the card was to be made for a child. Although I know plenty of 'older' girlies who would love Fairy Tink on their birthday card too!!

Here's this weeks TS sketch that scared me at first:



SSS challenge was to 'recycle'. Easy for me - well most of us I imagine, does anyone ever throw anything away????
My fav thing to recyle is the gold seal from Tesco's 'Butter-me-Up!' As you can see from the piece behind Tink, it looks stunning when put through the Cuttlebug in an embossing folder.





Tink was stamped onto a Nestie Label and coloured with my Watercolour Pencils. the backing paper is from the DCWV 'Glitter Stack', Pink Glittered horizontal strip is a piece of double sided card bought from my local craft shop - horizontal narrower pink piece is the reverse side. Also used a piece of glittered embossed vellum, although you can only see 2 tiny corners! Tink has been highlighted with Sakura Clear Gelly Roll.


Off to play with my Fairy Chloe and Skater Ian now :)
