Spring Blog Hop… Tuesday, May 10 2016 

It’s Blog Hop time again over at the Magnolia-licious™ Challenge and this time our theme is ‘Spring’. You should have arrived from the lovely Norma’s blog but if you hopped straight here you will definitely want to pop back to the Magnolia-licious™  Challenge blog and hop right through from the start. As our theme is Spring, I’ve chosen to create a sweet fairy cottage using some of my old favourite Tildas to decorate:

My images are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Cryogen White Card and coloured with Copic Sketch Markers then fussy cut. The Copics used are as follows: skin: E11, E00, E000, R20 hair: E47, E57, E55, E51 clothes: YR12, YR02, YR01, YR0000, Y26, Y23, Y21, Y00, G20, YG25, YG03, W5, W3, W1, W00 I added some sparkle to the wings with Kindy Glitz

My fairy cottage was cut on the Cameo using this file from SVG Cuts. Not for the faint hearted, It took quite a bit of time to construct, but well worth the effort. I’m sure this would delight any little lady young and old alike. The lid/roof comes off the mushroom cottage for the perfect space to store a small gift, I have placed a faux candle in the smaller cottage to add some light. All the panels for the wood grain, roof thatching, etc have been done with embossing folders and ink

Did you notice little fairy on the verandah:
