My Mo Manning Fairy Obsession Continues - more practice with my Spectrum Noir Pens


Hello to everyone and Happy Sunday.  I hope this finds you well.  
The weather is forecast to be fine here and we may be bramble picking later today.  
My younger daughter has a fancy for some bramble crumble and we saw some lovely specimens on the local heath the other day.  
We also found a pear tree dripping in fruits, so off we will go.


My obsession with Mo Manning Fairies continues. 
 I had purchased this fabulous image Summer Fairy Finna  recently and have not had time to colour her until now.  
She is a real beauty and has been a joy to colour.
  I am concentrating on colouring using my Spectrum Noir Pens and I am really happy with the results. 
 Coloured on Neenah Classic Crest Card - Solar White with some beautiful Shabby Blue Frantage detail.

List of Materials used to make this Birthday card:

Wonderful image as detailed above coloured using my Spectrum Noir Pens and with some pencil detail.  I love the bright blues and greens on this card.
Image cut using Spellbinder oval die.
Designer Papers are from my stash.
Easel card base is Centura Pearl Card.  
Other die cuts are label with wonderful free butterfly sentiment from StampArt by Kathryn.  
Butterfly die cut, Marianne.  Leaves are Ivy from Crafter's Companion and I am really finding this invaluable.
Have used a Spellbinder border die - Spades on top and bottom of card.
Flowers and ribbon are from my stash.

My mojo had well and truly departed and I was getting a bit concerned. 
 I bought this so sweet image  Baby Fairy Butterfly  by Mo Manning and voila, mojo returned, thank goodness.


This really is the cutest of images and a delight to colour.

 I tried to create a little fairy dell for this sweetie.

Neenah Solar White for image, cut using Spellbinder oval die.

Christmas Fairy Needle

Hello and happy day to everyone.  I hope this finds you well.

My post for today features the so sweet image Fairy Needle by Mo Manning.  

I have used this image before and I  think this is one of my favourite Digital Stamps and I have chosen to make a Christmas card with this lovely image.





List of Materials Used to make this card:

Wonderful image as detailed above coloured using my Spectrum Noir Pens with glitter detail
Spellbinder die to cut image.
Background is an embossing folder from Crafter's Companion - Seasonal Music and it is lovely. Embossed on my Spellbinder.  My Spellbinder is gradually falling to pieces.  The handle has completly broken and my clever husband has made a replacement handle.  I will be asking Santa for an Ebosser for Christmas.
Card base is Centura Pearl Card.
  I purchased some white Mulberry Paper and have used Roses large and small quilling dies from Crafter's Companion to produce the beautiful roses.  These have been inked with Distress Inks - Tumbled Glass and dusted with glitter and are so twinkly and scrummy.



The image above was taken last evening in an attempt to show you all of the fabulous glitter and sparkle.
Other dies are Ivy and wonderful Snowflakes also from Crafter's Companion and these are  glittered.
Sentiment is computer generated and cut using a label from the Scalloped Tags Dies.
Other flowers and bling are from my stash.
