Counting Mushrooms

Sometimes I do an inky background that I’m not that enamoured with. That’s why I chose this stamp, which had the mushrooms at the front as a focal point, and the busy pattern covered up and distracted from the background. As soon as I saw this stamp, I thought fairies!

Because the red in the card on the left was so dominating, I stamped my mushrooms out again, coloured them, then fussy cut them out and Magic Mounted them over their counterparts. That also allowed me to tuck some little twigs behind them. I did this with the top card also. The little blue butterflies (on card bottom right) were made with a Fiskars hand punch.

  1. Thanks so much Judy, and I appreciate you commenting. I just saw over 20 comments come up, which got me all excited, until I realised they were mostly spam. SO nice to get a genuine one occasionally!

  2. Thanks for giving all these great steps to achieve these gorgeous cards. I don’t know where you get all your lovely ideas but these are such a delightful series which bring an instant smile to me. A good reminder for me to get out my fairy stamps again. Thank you.
