Fancy a peak?

Oh my, you should see these little beauties.
Karen over at Funky Kits has done it again.
I think I NEED all of these little fairy images and as I said in an earlier post
I don't normal do fairies
but I LOVE these.
Why not pop on over to the Sugar Nellie Blog
where all this week the design team are showcasing them.
So cute.
This will be followed by a blog hop this coming weekend as the stamps go on sale Saturday morning at Funky kits, link above.

Back to my samples and today I have a nice simple card for you.

And closer up.

For this card I have used;
Tim Holtz Idea-ology Fragments.
Andy Skinner stamps Let the Festivities begin and Simply Angelic.
Adirondack alcohol inks Stone wash and Sail boat blue with a Silver Mixative.
Black StazOn ink and bling from Zva Creative.

I love working with these fragments which are attached to the card with a good lashing of Glossy accent. 
They create such a classic, simplistic card which looks as if you've spent hours making it.
Less is more, again!
I added the alcohol inks by just dabbing with the felt tool,
if you are unsure how to use the alcohol inks Tim has quite a few tutorials over on You Tube for you to work through.

That's all for me today I'm away to start and get ready for my next demo which is this Saturday over at Howden's Garden centre in Inverness.
