Funky Fairys Challenges #3 DT Card - Faux Stitching

Well it's already Challenge 3 over on Funky Fairys Challenges and this week we would like to see some 'Faux Stitching' on your creations. Remember you can create anything as long as you use at least one Funky Fairy Papercraft item. There's a fab Funky Fairy download as a prize for one lucky winner.

I've used FF papers from the 'Love Train' and 'Doodlementals'. The image is one of the gorgeous new releases from Paula over on Pollycraft Designs, Sharing Sherbert - 'Daydream', coloured with copics and watercoloured pencils. I've also used a little sakura blue glaze on her sweater detail and to highlight her eyes. The background has been chalked, then cut on circle scalloped nesties. The swirls and flowers are also from the FF 'Doodlementals' kit, except for the smaller swirl in left corner which was stamped. I've added faux stitching along the swirls, around the flower edges and the image edge using a black sakura glaze pen. To finish I've used a stamped sentiment and added a couple of stamped dragonflies, coloured with sakura stardust.

Please go and check out all the other fab creations from the DT, they are sure to give you lots of inspiration I do hope you'll be able to join us this week over on FF Challenges. Remember if you don't have any FF stuff there are some freebies to get you started available over on the Funky Fairy Inspirations Blog where there is also a Creative Designers Call at the moment. You can also purchase lots of gorgeous sets or individual sheets over in the shop.

Lastly I'd just like to wish fellow FF DT member and blogging buddy Emma a very Happy Birthday for today xxx. And if you're quick she has some gorgeous blog candy which ends today, so you might still be in with a chance.
