Mushroom Forest

Hello lovely people and a very happy Sunday to you.  I have a few cards I haven't shared on here yet.  I must admit I'm guilty of sharing on my Instagram page but my poor little blog gets a tad neglected.  I always think to myself "I'll do that later" and then never do.  Do folks even read blogs anymore? or is it all Insta and TikTok now?  I don't know but for now I shall make an extra effort to update here as well.

So my latest is another card and it's fairy themed again.  I just love my fairies lol but then you know that.  I think I shall call this one 'mushroom forest'.  I've used Lavinia Stamps images and stamped in Versafine Clair ink.  My background was made with lots of blending of Distress Inks and a Lavinia Stamps template for the moon.  I coloured the spotty mushrooms with Inktense pencils and those that were 'solid' images I used some soft pastels and Sakura metallic gel pens to add light accents.  All in all I love how it came together.

Images:  Lavinia Stamps - 'Spellbound fairy', 'Spotty Toadstool', 'Meadow Mushroom', 'Fairy Toadstool', 'Creeping Vine', 'Luna Lights' and 'Slender Mushrooms mini'

Backgound:  Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass, Mermaid Lagoon, Wilted Violet, Blueprint Sketch, Picked Raspberry and Lucky Clover

Images stamped with Versafine Clair in Nocturne and Twilight

I used a metallic silver gel pen to add highlights to the mushroom/toadstool stalks and the hanging luna lights and then just dotted some acrylic paint pens around for like little flowers and fairy dust.  Oh and not forgetting my white Signo gel pen for the stars that are just peeking through the foliage.  No fairy is complete however without a little sparkle so if you look closely you may see her twinkly wings but photography is not my forte so it doesn't show up as much as I'd like.

So that's all from me today.  As I said I have a few more cards to share so I'll be back in a few days.

Take care folks and happy crafting.

Such depth of colour on your lovely Fairy scene, many thanks for joining our Sparkle theme at Allsorts challenge. And in my experience, yes Peeps most certainly do still use blogs.
