Beautiful Fairies and Flutterbys

Hi everyone, today's card is my DT card for the fantastic Anything Goes Challenge Blog.  Don't forget you can shop at the brilliant Craft Den - Lyn is always pleased to see her challenge entries popping up in the online shop.

Our theme this fortnight is Flutterby Butterfly.  Anything with wings ...........  I have sooo many gorgeous stamps and images of butterflys, fairies and birds that it took me ages to choose which image to use.  However the gorgeous fairy used is a digi image from Make it Crafty.  She of course is coloured with Promarkers.  The papers are all from First Edition - the Dreamcatcher and New Leaf collections.  The background paper has been stamped with a gorgeous tailors dummy and butterflies by Creative Creations.
I have layered the image onto black netting and added a black spotty ribbon bow finished with a butterfly charm.

I hope you like her.

Monochromatic - and i'm not talking about the weather !!

Hello to all my fellow crunchies ...........  are you all ok ????  It's very wet and horrible here in Taunton, lots of flooding - had to go miles out of way to get kids to school - but they got there and now my day is my own ......... wonderful.....

Today's challenge over on my Challenge Blog - The Cutie Pie Challenge - is monochromatic.  You are allowed to use other colours for hair and skin.  The prizes are wonderful as always.  Being a DT member is fab and I love it ........ it certainly makes you think about trying something different on your cards.

Anyway when this challenge came to light - I just knew that "Harley Boy" by Prairie Fairy was gonna be the focal point of my card.  I have coloured him in greys - a cool biker dude indeed.

I had just purchased a gorgeous embossing folder - Timepiece by Couture Creations - very steampunk,  and used this on a patterned paper which I then chalked using Dovecraft chalks to highlight the embossing.  The papers are the Liquorice Capsule collection by Papermania.  The images and embossing were layered with black card from stash.  The sentiment is by Creative Expressions - from their Steampunk Dreams range.

I hope this has inspired you and that you hop on over to the Cutie Pie Challenge Blog and join in this fun challenge.
