It's "Red" at Crafts and Me and Sneek Peak

Morning Peeps,

Well it's only Wednesday and I can honestly say I am whacked! Roll on Friday.  Today it was turn to choose the challenge theme over at Crafts and Me Challenges and as usual I have gone easy on you and have chosen the colour "RED", which with Valentine's Day fast approaching is a good excuse for you to make your loved one a Valentine's Card.

I have used one of the soon to be released Crafts and Me Stamps called "Violet Fairy" by Jasmine-Becket Griffith and I am sooooooo in love with her and I bet you guys are going to love her too.

Isn't she just stunning in red.

All panels have been zig zag stitched.

the little tag pops out for a sentiment to be written on.

If your attending the Stamperama show in Stevenage on Sunday you will be able to purchase this stamp but for the online store release the date will not be announced until 7th February.

Materials Used:-

Violet Fairy available soon from Crafts and Me Here
Papers by Magnolia
Medium Copic Markers
Spellbinders Fleur De Leys Die
Martha Stewart Border Punch

Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Heart Charm from the Hobby House

Prior to your posts I'd never come across this artist but the two you've hwon are absolutely amazing. I love the colours you've used & the vibrancy with which you've created texture in her wings - the balck lacy layer behind the image panel picks up the hanging-downess/upness (oh I need more words) of her wings brilliantly & as for the stitiching mimicking the cobwebby bits - great.
