> Meet the Design Team:

I used Distress inks and a silver shimmery paint to create my background, I highlighted my Creeping Vine with white gel pen. My reflection I stamped Gaggle of Geese using Memento black ink onto a SplodgeAway mat and used the mat as the stamp upside down first and then lined up the Gaggle of Geese again the right way up and stamped using Versafine ink, I used a silver glittery pen to draw a line between the image and reflection to creat an illusion of water, I added the Creeping Vine and Meadow Grass last before edging with Black soot distress ink to frame it.

I used my 4" round Gelli plate with Distress inks to create my background and also inked through and round a nesting circle stencil, just to add some texture, i used distress inks to shadow stamp the Fairy-thistles stamps in the background then Versafine in black for the main image.I drew two lines freehand to frame my tag using a fineline marker pen, I coloured the Fairy-thistles with pencil and filled in with Glossy Accents.

My third I used my 4" roundGelli plaint with Imaginaion crafts Starlight paints and bubble wrap and a stencil for my background, the Fairy Orbs and Moon Pods were stamped using Black Versafine ink and coloured with pencils, a few liquid pearls to finish off.

Thank you for visiting today, I hope it's inspired you to join in, have a wonderful day xx Zoe xx
