Create a Fairytale Scene for Crafty Cardmakers first challenge of 2013.

Evening Everyone,
It's the start of another year of challenges over at Crafty Cardmakers, and Our hostess Eva is asking for you to create a Fairytale Scene. 
Once again we are sponsored by THE STAMPMAN  who are offering the winner a £10 voucher for their store, and DI'S DIGI DOWNLOADS with a $10 GIFT VOUCHER.
My card has been made using several of my lovely Magnolia stamps and DooHickey dies available from SirStampalot..
Root Cellar Door X9937M was stamped and embossed onto Watercolour card using Black Versamrk ink and clear embossing powder. It was then coloured using Distress inks and cut out and mounted with my circular Nesties.
Jester Tilda Y0087M and Lillyrose the Dragon Y0087M have been stamped and coloured in the same way before being fussy cut and added to the scene using silicon glue.
The background papers (Stella Rose and Bo Bunny) have been given a faux stitched border using a pricking tool and fine black pen.
The Grass Lace DooHickey has been used to ground the scene and I stamped a greeting into the Cloud.
I finished everything off with some tiny punched flowers, gems and Card Candi.
I hope that you will join us HERE this fortnight with your Fairytale Scenes, but please make sure that you read the rules. 
It was very disappointing last month that so few people actually made what they were asked to make.
It certainly made it easier to pick the winners though so maybe there was some consolation.
Have a great evening.
It's chaos here trying to get the Grandchildren to calm down and get things ready to go back to school tomorrow. I think everyone is going to need an early night.
