Spring Fairy Concertina Frame (posted by Claire)

Good morning everyone, Claire here with another project made using the beautiful Spring Fairy Collection stamps. These stamps are so lovely I wanted to show them off so I made a little concertina frame card (I'm not really sure what they are called but I do love making them lol)

I won't go into detail describing each panel or you'd fall asleep but the backgrounds are all made using distress inks and overstamped with some of the worker stamps from the Spring Fairy Collection, I've also added the Large Crackle Background and the hilly treescape from Magical Landscapes into the mix for my background stamping. 

The focal images are all coloured with Lyra pencils and all the edges have been given a bit of distressing with my craft knife and a shimmer of gilding wax. 

I've added a couple of butterflies to the inside, these were stamped on acetate with Versamark and embossed with Gold embossing powder before being glittered on the back. I used gold vellum to create the concertina frame effect but you can't see it on the photos so you'll have to use your imagination lol. I didn't give it a thought when I was taking the photos so apologies for missing that. I've also added a little tag stamped with the pretty little primula stamp

I really enjoyed making this, what could be more fun than playing with inks and colouring?
Thanks so much for visiting today
