Now here is my Card I made for this wonderful new Release-:
How exciting is this,  as well as these Fabulous New Releases this is my very post as a DT gal for The Emerald Faeire Garden, wooo hoooo.
For my card I wanted to have 
 in a little field of mushrooms, so after a little cropping and resizing I was able to use the same mushrooms that Ebony is holding on to.
I can tell you I was going to add some windows and doors to the mushrooms but I think my hand drawing needs lots of working on .. they looked strange and not what was in my mind at all so left them as is, lol.....
I used the wonderful Flourish sentiment designed by Donna as a part of my sun.
I dont often use Red, Orange and Yellow together but I love the bright effect it made
I used a  page from a Storybook of Fairy's and painted over it with gesso as my backgound paper.
Ok....Don't forget to pop on over to The Emerald Faeries Design Team A to see what gorgeousness they have created with the New release too!

Tiny Dreamer

Just a quick post today to share today. I love the look of copics on kraft paper, the effect is always so soft,it does take alot more work to blend and it does use alot more of your ink, I think so anyway.
I have used a Hanglar Stanglar image along with Cc designs Mushroom, MS grass punch and my fab Magnolia Doo-hickey Die.

Sweet Spring

I have been hanging out to play with my New Magnolia Stamps that I got from Bizzy Bec's and what better time to ink them up for this
Months Challenge "Just add LACE" Bizzy Bec's Challenge Blog.
 The Car, Spring Background and Tilda plus the Ticket tag are all from HERE  Bec's BB online store.
This month we have another fab prize up for grabs that you wont want to miss out on.

 I wanted to try something a little different for my card. I wanted the background to be just that in the background so coloured it with my Warm greys and and a touch of YG91.The car I stamped onto Kraft card and some shimmery card and added just a little depth with my warm greys once again. By colouring Tilda with a brighter colour-YR"s I was able to make her (I think, I hope!!!) the focal point of my card.I also could not resist using my new Tim Holtz die that seemed to fit perfectly behind my BG image along with some  cotton gauze and  lace for a soft effect.......
