Sunday Postcard Art - Flower Fairies and a freebie

 Hello friends and visitors, hope you are keeping well! It's been an age and a half since I have last posted, the reason is that really I am not into blogging anymore, and only blog now when I have been asked to do so. And like my last post here, I was again invited by the lovely Mandy to host another Sunday Postcard Art Challenge, this time with the theme of Flower Fairies, as the title of my post suggests. So here goes, my Flower Fairy Postcard:

I decided to choose an image from one of the wonderful Flower Fairy books by  Cicely Mary Barker. 
I love these fairies, they are so sweet and whimsical. So I cut a piece of card to size, created a background collage with strips of washi tape and scrapbook paper and then simply fussy-cut some other images, including the fairy of course, to try and create a balanced collage. It turned out quite busy, but I just went with the flow, without too much thinking, and this is the result...
Below some details still.


Now, because I know many of you started to follow me because of the freebies I sometimes share, I have created a Flower Fairy one for you, specially since it's so long since my last one.


If you would like to have the full resolution one to print, please email me, but please only use them for personal use!

Well, that's it for now, - short and sweet. I cannot say when I will blog again, it may well be a while, so if you are interested to see more of my work, the best place to do that is via my Instagram

And if by any chance you would like to play in the postcard challenge, all you have to do is CLICK HERE

Thanks for your visit and happy crafting,

Astrid

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
