Fairies Live Here


I wasn't going to participate in the Good Knight! Caardvarks Challenge, until I saw this $1 acrylic stamp at Michael's yesterday. This stamp set was perfect, since the theme of the challenge is Fantasy. I just love the little mushroom and sentiment that I used to create this 4.25 x 4.25 inch card. Hope you enjoy.

What an adorable stamp...and at $1 too!!! I love that about Michaels and AC Moore. I also love your copic coloring...it's wonderful. I have a few but don't really know how to shade, etc. I also love how the paper mimics the mushroom top...great fantasy card!

well first of all, of course, the card is magnificent and all the more impressive that it's based on a $1 impulse buy! (♥GOTTA LOVE IT!♥)

secondof all, i think i may have figured out why *my* coloring does not look like YOUR COLORING: my coloring does not use NEARLY as many colors as your coloring!!! (i love the closeup pic, too, with the marker colors...it's allowing me LOOK & LEARN!!!) :)

This is sooo cute! I love what you do with the bargain stamps! BTW...enabler alert! Went to Joann's this morning and found all kinds of Studio G clear and wood mount stamps (Mother's Day, Father's Day, and Spring) by the check out in their dollar section. I live in Metro Detroit, but I'm assuming they would have the same where you are. Just love 'em!
