Fairies, Mystic and Magic Challenge

This is my DT card for the second challenge at DCC & Friends. The theme is "Fairies, Mystic and Magic" and you have have until September 14th to enter your lovely creations. We had a fantastic response to our first challenge and the winners of Challenge #1 will be announced next Wednesday 22nd August. Thank you to everyone who took part.
For challenge #2 we have two sponsors, how apt, so there will be two winners and a top three. Firstly we are proud to be sponsored by Sharon Duncan Crafts who have kindly donated a Home Tweet Home CD ROM for one lucky winner.

I'm delighted to say that our second sponsor for this challenge  is  PaperCraft Junkies,  who are generously donating 6 digi images for another winner to choose from thier website.

So, on to my inspiration for you.....


I started with an 8"x8" card blank and inked the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink before layering on silver mirri. I then used a blend of Distress Inks;  Dusty Concord, Tumbled Glass, Shaded Lilac and Milled Lavender to create the backing card.


The beautiful images are from the Spellbound Fairies CD by Jem's Designs. The main image has been matted onto a frame made with an X-Cut die. The thinner image has been flipped in MCS and digitally matted onto matching backing paper.


I used Promarker Blue Pearl to colour the lace before pleating and fixing it behind the "Magical" sentiment. The flowers were cut from a Crealies die and coloured with aforementioned inks, then layered up, spritzed and scrunched. The finishing touches are a Cheery Lynn leaf flourish die and some silver Candi for the flower centers.
Don't forget to visit the DCC & Friends Challenge blog for more inspiration from the fabulous Design Team and we look forward to seeing your crafty creations.
