Things Mystical

The latest Tanda Teaser has been set by Zoe who has very kindly agreed to step in and share the work as I have had rather a lot on my plate lately.

So her first Teaser is Myth and Mystery, which I believe is one of her favourite subjects.  For my entry I have decided to use gliding flakes and acetate to make a fairy. 

She was stamped (Tanda Art Nouveau Girls set 1) onto acetate using stazon, then the reverse was coated with flitterglu and coated with guilding flakes. I added some Stickels to the front for her garland. The wings were stamped (Tanda Art Nouveau Girls set 1) on vellum and coloured with clearstar sakura pen before being positioned behind my fairy. The background was stamped using Indigo Blu stamps and versafine ink. I picked out the floating dandelion seeds with clearstar for a little added sparkle.

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

" Creative craft challenges - Anything goes"
"Tanda Teaser - Myth and Mystery"
"fab n funky - Things with wings"
"Crafting for all seasons - Things with wings"

"Inspire me Fridays - Anything goes"
"Delicious doodles - Use metal" my metal is represented by the gilding flakes
"Avadares - Make it sparkle"my sparkle is the glitter on the leaves in the fairy's hair and the sakura pen on the wings and dandylion seeds.
