A Magical Fairyland...................

Good evening to you all in the land of blog
Today I would like to show you another new addition to the stock at Grimsby Crafts, I bought these stamps on Thursday and they are beautiful.  They are by Papermania and are called Midnight Fairytale and are so pretty, that I just had to make a Mother's Day card with all of them, well almost...................

I also had a conversation with Lynn about Rui Tong, a supplier I had worked with a while back and when Sue and Lynn went to the Trade Show they were listed however Lynn and Sue did not manage to see them.  So with this in mind I would like to re introduce you to Rui Tong, this link will take you to the butterflies, one of which I have used again on this card.  Now when I say butterflies, these are butterflies made from feathers and beautifully presented.  Here is the butterfly that I used on this card.
I have removed one wing and added small black pearls for the body which sits on the fairies hand.

Here is the final tilted easel creation
The base and contrast colour is pale pink.  The papers used on top are Prima, Madeline purchased recently from the Hobby House.  The smallest of the grand circles has been used again and all top papers have been distressed and glittered.  The flowers are from stash with some new purchases also from Grimsby Crafts.  I have used a Tim Holtz distress ink on the inner sentiment, a new one again from Grimsby Crafts called Spun Sugar.  I  have torn one corner and placed the music notes underneath also distressed.  Glitter is stickles platinum. 
The fairies are coloured in copics with a clear Atyou Spika glitter pen added over the wings.  The sentiment here is one available in the pack as are the tiny fairies and butterflies on the inner sentiment.

I am entering this creation the following challenges
Die Cut Dreams - Spring Garden Scene
Lawnscaping Challenge - use a stamp in an unconventional way
Magical Monday - Spring colours
Stamping Vacation - torn edges
Aly's Sunday Challenge - Anything Goes
Card Cupids - Anything Goes

I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors especially those that leave me such inspiring comments

Hugs and enjoy your day tomorrow
Kate
