Inspired by Thumbelina


The challenge at Splitcoast today had me really scratching my head.  It was to create a card based on a Fairy Tale.  Here is what I came up with. 
The story of Thumbelina is about a tiny girl being born on a flower in a beautiful garden.  I used a circle mask and then stamped within it using my stamps from The Craft's Meow to represent the garden.  I  then removed the mask and stamped the sentiment then stamped, coloured and cut out the little flower girl from Stampotique...pop dotted her for interest.  I am also adding this one to the challenge at Moxie Fab which was to create a birthday card.  Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

Supplies:  stamps:  Typically Teen-TCM; Stampotique/Copic markers/ pop dots
