Hi friends! It's Sunday and that means time for a new challenge at The Paper Players! This week, I have the pleasure and honor of being your hostess with a Clean and Simple challenge: Magical. There are so many ways you can go with this: fairies, unicorns, mermaids, gnomes, or anything your imagination can dream up!
I had so much fun with this card! I combined three different stamp sets to assemble my fairy garden, and if you scroll down you'll see what my inspiration was. There are a lot of images, but I tried to keep things clean and simple with lots of white space and minimal layers. Of course I had to add some glitter on the wings, because what's a fairy without her fairy dust?!
I'm also linking this up to our "vibrant color" challenge at Seize the Birthday, though you can also make an "anything goes" birthday card.
Now for my inspiration... There is a park a few miles from my house, and it has a trail which is a one mile loop around a small lake. I've been there many times over the years, but this time was different.
One by one, I came across one fairy garden after another, all created by other park-goers just for the enjoyment of others.
There must be at least a dozen fairy gardens now, and there is even a gnome fishing in the creek.
Nobody damages or steals anything, and every time I go back now I see that people have added more to it. It's quite magical!
Fairies, gnomes, even Smurf's... everybody is welcome in this garden!
