Fairy Romp/Beads,Pearls

This weeks card features stamps from Mary Lounsbury. If you love fairies, faces and folage, check out her stamps and her new book, Greenward Turn . The stamps are created from her digital photographic images. I'm looking forward to exploring using them in all kinds of work and play.
I've lost count and still this is in the series of cards I finally say, just scan it and post it and the next one will make you smile.
I used my stamp positioner a lot on this card and restamped the fairy image about 20 times.
I stamped and embossed the Leave room I'm getting into destress ink, even to i don't want to be destressed, and used a bunch for the background, inking up the foam applicator and moving the ink onto the card from the craft sheet. Added some stardust pen, spritzed with some water and ramdomly stamped fairy faces and foliage.
Many years ago I told my neighbor Melissa- she was about 3 years old at the time- it was important to leave wild places in the garden for the fairies. We went out looking for fairies and she was disappointed not to find any. Humans are loud and large to fairies, and i suggested they came out when we weren't around and we needed to be quiet and still to see them. Very early the next morning i found her crouching in the wild space, so still I thought she was sleeping, waiting to be with the fairies.She is a lovely young woman now, in college. I hope she still finds time to dance with the fairies.

  5. Very cool!I love the glowiness and the faerie faces in the background, and how she fades off around the edges. Thanks for using my stamps, Robyn!
