Here's a sample from me...

I chose the gorgeous Butterfly Emerges stamp for this block art.
I painted the block in acrylics first, then stamped the image in grey ink before painting in acrylics
I then restamped the image in black ink over my painting, this is a bit of a hit and miss exercise as I had to repaint her and attempted this three times lol... you can see in the detail piece that it's slightly off set but I kept with it.
I used the pretty blossom from the Musical Fairy set to add a trail of flowers to the adorable sentiment.

Today, we’ve enlisted some super talented designers to inspire you with ideas on how to use these beautiful new garden fairies! Hop along for lots of fun and inspiration!

Have fun on the HOP!

  1. Love the depth of this project Kim and the colour scheme is exquisite. I quite like the over stamp look, it gives it the handmade touch rather than the clean commercial look. I love it.. Hugs Tracey xx

  2. Wow wow wow, I love this, the colours are so pretty and I like the fact that the top layer is a little off, it gives it a really nice hand made look.

  3. I love these beautiful stamps. Yours is lovely done on a block in acrylics. I agree that the offset look is perfect, and I like the additional flowers.

  4. Fabulous new set, congratulations

  5. Wow, I just love these new stamps. And your project is wonderful too. Well done!
