A little fairydust.......

Well here we are again folks ! 
Its the very early hours of another Monday!  
I am bog eyed and bleary headed, peppermint tea is mashing while Felix is still snoring on my now dead leg !!! Getting organized and up to date with this weeks blog schedule .......Today's offering comes from the Splodgeaway stable !!!
This reverse easel card used the Fairy Stenskape, Viva Decor 3D mediums and a lovely 6 x 6  paperpack from Crafty Individuals
I took a technique I have used to add dimension to pieces in my art journal and rolled several co-ordinating papers into different sized "cigars" and fixed them to the card base, which I had already inked using the stenskape and the old distress inks
The toadstools and fairies were then created using the Viva 3d and distress Stains. I am really in love with this medium it is so versatile and easy to use. The biggest draw for me is probably its speedy drying time given my totes lack of patience!! ha ha!
Felix and I have lots on this week.....( shhhh the V....E.....T trip is looming !!!) and I have prep deadlines, writing to finish and several comissions in the diary. Plus, I hope to see a man about a proverbial "dog",  before ending the week on the NHS merry-go-nowhere.
I am also expecting rather a lot of crafty goodliness (from both sides of the pond !) to be delivered via Mr Postie and Mr Courier today and I want to plaaaaaaaayyyyyy so I am of to the "artistic bombsite" to launch a hand grenade to tidy up all things inky in readiness.
Have a good week all !!
Crafty cheers for now :-)
Love and hugs for now 
Rae and Felixmogs
