Fearn and flowers



Just 1 card today as spent most of it washing up after sick offspring (2 lots of bedding + several cuddly toys, yuk!), but I did get to play with this little ray of springtime. Her name is "Fearn" and she is from the "Lily Bean Fairies" collection at Tales from Pollycraft. Fearn was a freebie, but her sisters are still available. The retro flowers are also a Pollycraft digi stamp which I bought as part of a set called "Sweet Dreams Springtime Retro".
The actual Pollycraft Monday challenge#41 was to "make your own flowers" and I got a bit carried away haha! I made my own flower background paper by resizing the flowers and arranging them randomly, then I printed another sheet of the same flowers to cut out. Then I thought "why cut when I could tear?" I think this gives them an extra funky look. They are fixed in place, at different heights (flat, 1mm, 2mm) with tape and sticky pads. I tinted them slightly with a yellow copic marker, and Fearn got a fantasy flower garden to die for!
If you do pop over to Pollycraft check out the stamp image they've made and are selling to raise money for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance Fund. It's only £1.50 and every penny goes to the fund.
love as always Gina x x x
