Tiny fairies

I saw an opportunity to use these tiny fairy stamps. I bought the set for some of the other stamps.  The fairies are tiny - under 2cm in size.
I drew a faint pencil line around a lid and then followed it to get my stamping circular. I used a tiny twig stamp to create the shape and then filled in with a little ivy leaf and twig stamps. Then added the seed heads going off to the right. I glittered the fairy wings and centres of the flowers with Stickles but I'm not sure if it shows up here. It adds that important touch of sparkle. 
Stamps are all Card-io
Inks Memento Teal Zeal, Distress Tumbled Glass, Adirondak Lake Mist.

I am entering it in to:
Less is More - Colour challenge 
Butterfly Challenge - All Kinds of Fairies
It seems wrong that the first time I enter the Butterfly challenge, I don't use butterflies! I've been following for a while but never managed to post. But there you go, I hope to enter again next year.

  9. I was sure that it was one punch in its entirety ... and it turned out that this is your real lace work. Beautiful card, full of light and mystery.

  10. A stunning card! I love the colours and the way you've created the curved shape. I've got some of these leaf and flower stamps but never thought to use them like this. Beautiful! xx
