The Fairy Tree

Brayering and stamping - my favourite! One of the things that caught my eye at the Farnborough craft show was this amazing tree stamp. Isn't it lush! It's from Lavinia stamps and I'll be honest with you (because it's pretty obvious).....I made the tree taller on this card because I wanted it to be a real statement. All 3 of the Lavinia stamps are purchases that I made at the show (and they were broken into on the night I got home!!).

The background that I also brayerd on the main card has been liberally spritzed with Antique Gold perfect pearls mister and it shimmers beautifully. I wish the camera would pick the sparkle up.

I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
Allsorts Challenge - It's Your Choice
Crafty Ann's Challenge - Bold and Bright
Cute Card Thursday - Winged Things
Always Crafting - Anything goes
Paper Creations Ink - Show us your style with your favourite technique

Items Used:
Lavinia Stamps: 3 small dancing fairies, Sender Mushrooms, I can't find the tree in the store.
Adirondack Inks: Aubergine, Cranberry, Butterscotch
Memory Box die
Perfect Pearls Mister: Antique Gold.

Thanks so much for looking.
