Suzanne Czosek #3 .... Bluebell Wood

"Today I am taking you on a trip to the fairy woods where if you look closely you can see a fairy house amongst the Bluebells".

I was inspired by the "doorway" in the Hot Pick 1011 plate to create a secret door that leads to a fairy house.  I stamped the image using Ranger Archival Coffee Ink onto SmoothyWhite Stamping Card


I colored the flowers and doorway using watercolor pencils and water-brush.  I cut open the door way using a cutting knife. I then needed a fairy to hide in my doorway.
I stamped the lovely lady from the Architecture3 plate using Ranger Archival Ink – Coffee onto Smoothy White Stamping Card.  I colored her using the watercolor pencils and water-brush. 


The edges were then distressed around the doorway, next I layered the door frame over the fairy. 

I needed a few flowers to frame out the house and the flowers from the Hot Pick 1009 plate were the perfect height for my doorway. 


The flowers were stamped with the same ink and on the Smoothy Stamping Card. I colored with the same watercolor pencils. I fussy cut the flowers to layer them around the doorway.
To finish off my card I needed a background:

I stamped the brick from the Architecture 3 plate using the same ink with a touch of gold colored on and smoothed out using the water-brush.  I finished the card with a banner stamped with the words Bluebell Wood.  I added a hint of the purple around the edges with watercolor pencil and the water-brush.

I can’t wait for next month to see the final projects from this term’s guest designers!

Leandra Says: a timely post as we emerge from the snow this week. My daffodils are trying to flower, but that snow keeps lingering around. We have not really gone above zero celcius this week, so hoping your cheery creative card will bring on the summer warmth soon!

Gillian Says: Love how you have not just opened the doors, but also combined them so well with the brick background, flower spray and the woman perfectly. Very clever!

Don't forget to link your creativity this week to the blog challenge here. We'd love to see how Suzz has inspired you!
