The challenge at Crafty Sentiments this week is Bingo.Drop on by to join in the fun and be in with the chance of winning a super prize.Don’t forget to take a look at some fabulous inspiration by the talented DT while you’re there.

Here’s peek at the Bingo board :

This is the dreamy Rose Fairy  by Crafty Sentiments Designs.What a beauty 🙂 She’s been coloured with Copic Ciao and Sketch Markers.I’ve followed the left hand vertical column (Stitching,Embossing,Buttons).The background squares and the ovals,with the stitching detail,have been cut with my new Crealies dies.

After looking at many (far too many) of this style of die I decided on these.They seemed very good value and doubts about things being too good to be true started creeping into my head.Oh my gosh!I’m impressed!On the first pass to cut them on my Big Shot the stitched detail showed straight away.I then went on to emboss them and got the beautiful raised part like you do with other dies with embossing capabilities.Altho’ I could have used them by just cutting them I liked the added dimension 🙂 They are quite sizeable too.I’ve never bought this brand before and I’m so happy with them 😀 Only thing I wasn’t sure about was the ovals being longer and skinnier than my Nestie sets but as you can see this pretty gal fits in nicely.I’ve also made a – dare I say it…yeah I’m gonna – Christmas card with them and the image fitted fine in there too.

Anyways…back to this card… For the embossing I chose a rose folder to go with my fairy friend.And the buttons are added to the flower centres.Finished with a freebie stamp 🙂
