1st of May today, so that means there is a new challenge over at the Live and Love Crafts blog page, this month our lovely Tina (or Tinchy) has designed this gorgeous collage for our inspiration, isn't it just so Tina??
Here is my take on it, as soon as I saw it I knew I was going to use Maja Designs Sofiero collection.
I have coloured one of the new Lili Of The Valley Fairies in with distress markers, this cutie is called Flower Dance, and they'll be available to buy soon.
The papers have been distressed with a Tim Holtz tool. I have added glamour dust to the wings of the fairy, and sprinkled shabby pink frantage around her too. On the birdcage I have added shabby white frantage, and before this had dried I added a sprinkle of both shabby pink and shabby green, the pics really don't do it justice. Fastened to the birdcage, in a triple bow, is some shabby white seam binding. Sandy makes this herself.
As always there are stickles on the flowers, and I have also added some picket fence crackle paint.
