Let us know what you think of the new stamps and products and you'll be entered for a chance to win the new stamp sets AND a T4TD quote notebook and pencil set! This is an AHHHMAZING prize you guys! The winner will be announced live by T4TD on Monday morning before the Create & Craft spot (which is at 3 PM GMT - so that's 8AM EST and 9 AM CST for us US girls - you can watch live or recorded show spots on the website if you're not in the UK!!).

For my stop on the hop, I'm showcasing the Fairy Garden set; these beauties are TOO adorable for words!

There's a lot going on here with today's project - it was so much fun to create! I started by cutting my collage frame out of Neenah Solar white cardstock and setting it aside. I also cut a piece of Neenah Solar white cardstock the same size as the outside border of the die so I could use it to create my background. 

Using my Beautiful Blender Brushes, I placed Distress Oxide ink in an ombre pattern effect over the entire background panel. The blender brushes put the ink on as smooth as silk!! I over-sprayed the green section with gold color splash spray from FSJ and apple green sparkle spray from Nuvo, and used a bit of Altenew white spray on the pink areas. I set that aside to dry, and started coloring my fairies!

Images are all colored with Copic markers and cut out with coordinating dies (Butterflies clear stamp images) or my Scan n Cut. Fairy wings are dusted with Stickles and/or Nuvo gloss drops. Lots of Wink of Stella on the various elements for extra glitz.

Once everything was all dolled up, I started adding it to my card base and polka dot background panel. I've used foam tape on the collage frame (1/8") and several of the fairies to give extra depth to this scene. Full supply list with links can be found at the end of this post. Oh yes, I have a discount code for you to use - T4TJENNIFER10 will save you 10% on your order from the Time For Tea shopIt won't work on the newest release yet, since that is exclusive to Create & Craft, but for anything in stock in the shop, you're all set!
