Hello folks

Well our lovely hot, sunny weather has come to a very wet and miserable end. Homes and roads have been flooded (not mine thank goodness) and roads and railway lines closed due to landslips. What a weekend and if yesterday was anything to go by, it has not finished yet.
So due to the inclement weather I sort refuge in my pjs and craft room, and made this gatefold card -
Outside of the card
Inside of the card
I have used Morgan Fitzsimon's Flights of Fantasy - Darcy stamp set (from Crafter's Companion) which I stamped onto Sheena's stamping card and coloured with my Spectrum Aqua blend pencils (I love these pencils) -

  • skin - honeycomb
  • hair - ebony and black umber
  • clothes - rose and regal blue
  • wings - soft red, sapphire and opal blue
  • leaves - bright green, bottle green, spinach and pine green
  • flowers - aubergine, pink tulpi, petunia, papaya and champagne
  • sky - gravel

I have also used -

  • white centura pearl (for the card base)
  • Scruffy Little Cat darks paper pad from Crafter's Companion
  • Die'sire create-a-card Florence
  • Sara's signature collection English country garden - Lazy daisy die set
  • Victorian velvet and tumbled glass distress ink
  • pearls from my stash

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
