Guardian of Heath & Home for Quixotic Paperie and a little candy!!!

Hope you're having a fabulous weekend and have something lovely planned for today!! Today I have a card using a gorgeous Carmen Medlin for SCACD stamp from Quixotic Paperie called Guardian of Hearth and Home. Isn't she stunning!?!? I could instantly see her in a white dress and so I decided to have another go at colouring on kraft cardstock as I think white looks especially lovely on it. The gorgeous paper is by Dream Street Papers from The Hobby House and I've painted the edges with pickett fence crackle paint.

I have coloured the image with copoics and my Son's white Crayola pencil again LOL. I also added some gold detailing on the wings and spots of the dress with a gold gel pen. I have added stickles to her wings and in lots of tiny dots all around her to represent fairy dust as I can just see her standing in a glade surrounded by lots of the sparkley dust can't you LOL? I added some glossy accents to the globe she is holding. I stamped a Stempelglede flourish around the edge of the kraft cardstock with white stazon and then painted the very edge with pickett fence crackle paint. You can get Stempelglede stamps from Quixotic Paperie too.

I added a mixture of flowers from my stash and some punched butterflies using Martha Stewart punches. I also used the Martha Stewart butterfly edge punch on the top edge of the ribbon. The brad is from Whiff of Joy.

Hope you like it and thanks for looking!!!

Did I mention candy? I hear you say!!! Yes I did and here it is!
The lovely Elaine from Quixotic Paperie has sent me this gorgeous Maribel stamp by Stempelglede to give away to one lucky reader of my blog!!! Isn't she stunning!?

Hi Jane
You did brilliant art with the stamp and the kraft paper was inspired. Why we don't use kraft more is a mystery LOL. The crayon was also clever.
Thanks for sharing :o)

Your card has been fantastic, absolutely enchanting, great colors and exquisite detailing. I like it very much!

The Mirabel stamp I unfortunately do not yet. Until now I only have the Flourish Heart stamp plate from Stempelglede. I would hope very much to win it.

Many thanks to you and Elaine for this opportunity.

warm greetings from Germany
