Hi There Crafters!

I have a bit of mid-month inspiration for you today, and a reminder to get your entry in for a chance to win a great prize.  Our theme is ANYTHING GOES, but if you feel like playing along with our twist for the month, we'd like to see your FLOWER FRENZY!

I have two images to show you today.  Spring Fairy, and Toadstool Thicket.  

This is what Toadstool Thicket looks like on it's own:

I layered the image up 8 times to create a full fairy garden background for my fairy, and then coloured up everything with markers.  I've added a few flowers in the corners.  They're from 49 and Market, and Petaloo.

I have a few close-up shots to show you, but first, here are a few important links for you:

This was my coloured image before I trimmed it down and made the card:

And my close-ups:

Thanks so much for popping in for a look!


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

Jo's Scrap Shack FFC #251: Anything Goes
The Paper Nest Dolls September Challenge: Anything Goes


  1. Oooooooooooeee! Masterful coloring Linda! Your shading/blending skills are absolutely delightful to see! Is there any chance you used Glossy Accents on the mushrooms black spots? When I blow it up I think I can see the white dots you added with a white pen - but I may be wrong - they are amazingly 3-D! Eight layers of mushrooms? Wow you really worked your background - I no where near put in that much effort on my Gnomes! Incredible piece - I will be following you on Bloglovin!

    1. Hi Ginny. Not sure you'll be notified of an answer here, but I'll pop back over to your blog to answer there too, just in case! No, I didn't use Glossy Accents. Just a white gel pen to make the dots. Thanks so much for your lovely comment!

  2. OMGoodness Linda, this is truly a labour of love. Wow, your background is amazing and perfect to showcase your little cutie. Wow, I'm amazing at your colouring!
