OOOOO.....SO EXCITED!!!!!

ooooo I was just so excited when my chippie design was accepted by TANDO CREATIVE! As you know I am on their design team & after I showed this to fellow teamie Kaz she encouraged me to send it in.  This little mushroom house is one that I have been drawing for kids forever I think!  My little sister enjoyed it, my daughter enjoyed it, the kids in the school where I helped enjoyed it!!!!  For my daughter I used to tell stories round it so I have called on those wonderful memories to create this picture.  It will go on a canvas when I find one the right size.

For the Mushroom House, the cap is painted & glazed, except the spots which are just glittered.  The 'trunk' is chalked & overstamped with a BG circle stamp.  The door is card and I cut out the windows & stuck lace behind.  The mushrooms are from a lovely stamp set by Elusive Images.  The background is distress inks & overstamped with a Sir Tim stamp.  Oh & the fairy stamp is by Dimension Fourth....she is pretty glittery!!!!

The story goes back to when my daughter was little but I added a few modern things.  Oh & Vikki always called her fairies Krystal or Mary hahahahaha Goodness know why Mary hahahaha!!!!!!

Thank you so so much for letting me be self-indulgant hahaha HUGS XXX

Awww, glad I can read the story too on this one - it was too small over at Tando for my poor old eyes! Hope Krystal finds her prince! The chippie looks fab Karen, love the stamping on the stem!

Kathy said...

Ohhh well done Karen! Your design is just fab and I love the way you've used it here. It must have been such a lovely "trip down memory lane" doing this

CLARE said...

Karen thats brilliant, I love this sort of thing. Funnily enough I took a photo of some weird looking toadstools this weekend (!) and this would be perfect on a LO. Great stamps you've got there too.

Janice said...

Gez said...

Magnificent toadstool Karen, you've excelled yourself today! Everything about it is wonderful.
Congratulations on the DT acceptance that is just fabulous news, clever you!
I LOVE your story, Spanky being a guinea pig and being female is sadly no prince, but she would love to keep Krystal company by the fire and topped up with wine of course :-)
love
