Hello House Friends!!! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  It's the start of a new year, a new month and a new series of challenges at The House That Stamps Built.  

The incredibly talented Laurie is hosting our challenge this week and her challenge is "Things with Wings".  

I so love the garden fairy stamps that are in the store at Repeat Impressions.  I have used them before and find myself smiling when I'm creating with them.  I recently got this RI#4301-K "Fairy's Lantern" to add to my collection and I love it.  I wanted to create a scene for her, so I used RI#629-I "Mountain Vista".  I first stamped the mountains and then decided where I wanted the fairy situated.  I stamped it there and colored just the body portion with a black Copic Marker, creating a shadow.  The latern was left open to color. I stamped the fairy again on a separate scrap of white cs and colored it again with Copic markers and fussy cut the body out.  After sponging the panel with Distress Inks and sprinkling it with water, I adhered the fussy cut piece to the shadow.  The sentiment is RI#2512-E "Just a Note". 

Head on over to these incredibly talented Rock Stars for lots more "things with wings" inspiration.  Then visit THE HOUSE for information on how to enter the challenge and get your creation into a drawing for $25.00 worth of fabulous Repeat Impressions Stamps.

So many wonderful details included in your scenic card! Love the water spots and the way you created a fairy shadow and popped up the colored fairy over top!! What a genius!

The first thought that came to mind when I saw your card was "dreamy".

So very pretty!

Oh love the fairy - I have just recently discovered that I like these little girls with wings. On my next order for sure. Love the scene you have created for her to fly above and the black shadow is perfect.
