It's Magical & Mysical at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hi Folks,

Oh dear! what happened to the weather - typical Bank Holiday!    -  BUT     there's something Mystical and Very Magical going on at FSC if you care to join us.

For my 'creation' I have used a Lost Coast Design stamp called - yes you have guessed - Spread Your Wings & Fly.  I stamped onto glossy cardstock and matted onto black and silver cardstocks.  The butterflies were stamped again, painted with Heavenly White H2O's befor adding to the image.  I used lots and lots of glamour dust, unfortunately it doesn't show in this pic. showing the sparkle created too much glare on the silver frame!  The swirls are from IndigoBlu Victorian Music Hall, sentiment and silver butterflies are TH, all stamped with Silver pigment ink and brushed with Perfect Pearls.

I hope you will join us for our Mystical and Magical outing, and if you need any persuasion, the rest of the DT have some very tempting creations to show.

  I am entering this card in:
    Craftymess challenge - Fantasy
    Crazy4challenges - Add butterflies
    Secret Crafter - Anything Goes
    Fussy &  Fancy - Swirls and Flourishes (lots of swirls here)
    Ooh LaLa - Make it Girly
    Divas by Design - Anything Goes

I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followers,  I am always amazed when I see a new face, and really appreciate you all for just being there.

That's it from me, enjoy the rest of the weekend.
