Magical fairy scene - Guest designer for TTCRD!

Good evening everyone 

I've been keeping myself distracted by crafting lately hence the many posts lol

I was very lucky to win a challenge over at "Through the craftroom door" blog.  As a prize my card that I won with will be featured in their magazine and I was asked to be Guest designer for them.
Of course I accepted lol.
This is the card I created for their challenge this week with some gorgeous crinkled ribbon

The theme is anything goes and the sponsor for the challenge is DLart with her beautiful crinkled ribbon.
You can hop on over to buy the stunning varieties of ribbon here plus stunning themed buttons:

I've become rather addicted to creating scenes with the Sheena Douglas sparkle pens and crafters companion fairy stamps created by Donna Ratcliff.

The scene on this card was made whilst crafting live with Sheena on her Facebook live event.  It was so much fun and hours just flew by. 
I didn't have the stamps used for the event and my scene is very different to the others because once I got the technique for the background my imagination just sparked with ideas and by the time I'd finished it the event had been finished for a few hours lol. 

I used the sparkle pens, glycerine to help blend the colours, fairy stamps, watercolour paints, watercolour card and white gel pen for highlights 

I absolutely love this one!
I made card using Lynda Chapman's cardstock, crinkled ribbon for the bow, flower gems , tattered lace oval dies to die cut sentiment out of sparkle background which was stamped using same stamps , paper boutique patterned papers for inside, tattered lace flourish die and poppy crafts fairy die. 

Very clean and simple compared to my usual style but I wanted the scene to be the main focal point. 

The photo below is of a acorn fairy house from same stamp set which I coloured in using Watercolour paints. 

I hope you love this as much as I do. 

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you've had a lovely bank holiday weekend . 

Lots of love
