Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog - Kym's Inspiration Post - Monday 16 March 2015

It is Monday and therefore time for me to show you an inspiration post for the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Monthly Challenge Blog.
  For this weeks' inspiration post I chose the Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamp called "Toadstool Fairy" to work with.  I wanted to make an extra special birthday card that had a bit of WOW!!  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and then used a blue, green, pink and yellow Pan Pastel and blended it all in with the Pan Pastel blender.
 The shape of the card came from Kathryn Sturrock who I saw making a card like this on Create and Craft a few weeks ago.  She used two A5 pieces of card, added some score lines and hey presto a dimensional card - but one that can be folded flat to go in an envelope but springs to life as soon as it is released out of the envelope - the only problem with it is that it's not that easy to photograph especially when using mirri card!!!
The backing papers I have used are from Joy! Crafts and are there "Under the Sea" paper pad.  It is such good quality paper.  The flowers took the time to punch out and ink and they were made with the same backing papers.

I have finished the card off with the punched flowers, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment, liquid pearls for the spots on the toadstools, die-cut butterflies (inked and Stickles glitter glue added), Papermania Glitterations, ribbon bow and a pearl.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
