Funky Fairys Challenge #5 ~ Swirls

WOW, we loved visiting all your blogs and looking at all the fab milk cartons you made for last weeks challenge, the winner and guest designer will be announced later.

LATEST NEWS
***The challenge for the milk carton last week has been extended for a further day, due to the word verification problems on blogger. a number of people have emailed Ria, saying they could not post their comment to enter the challenge. You will now be able to leave your comments, so please add your entry today. Therefore the winner and GD spot will not be announced until tomorrow. Thank You ***

This week we would like to see 'Swirls' on your creations, remember it doesn't have to be a card, you can make any creation for the challenge, all we ask is that you use at least one Funky Fairy Papercrafts item on your project.





I've used FF papers in orange from the Cherish collection. The daisy image is a digi stamp by the talented Chris Dark, coloured with watercolour pencils using a waterbrush then chalked the background. All ovals were cut using the nesties. Layered the image onto two offset scalloped ovals and inked all edges in brown. Used some lace across the card before mounting the image and sentiment. Sentiment was done on the PC, then chalked to bring in the colour match. To finish I've stamped swirls in each corner and added some prima flowers with brads. The flowers were white so have been daubed with brown ink.

We do hope you'll join us this week for the challenge, check out all the beautiful creations the rest of the DT have made over on the Funky Fairys Challenge Blog.

If you don't have any Funky Fairy Paprcraft items, and want to check out the quality of the papers, then there are some freebies available over on Funky Fairy Inspirations. You can also purchase individual sheets and kits from the Funky Fairy Papercrafts Shop, a new kit has been released this week 'Feelin Fruity - Shabby Style', which is gorgeous.

We look forward to seeing your creations.

I'm meeting up with Crafty Emma and Katy from the Glitter Garden today for some crafty chat, shopping and cake.

Enjoy your day everyone xxx
