Challenge 66 Fantasy

Hosted by Me!
As it's St. George's Day next Monday, I would like to see anything with a fantasy or mystical theme - So dragons, fairies, witches, etc. - Please make sure that the fantasy element is the main focal point of your creation and not a small fairy charm in the corner for example.
Please check the rules in the right-hand sidebar before entering, thank you.

I have been drawing since a child and studied graphics at College many years ago, I now work as a Medical photographer part time but my love was always drawing. I started cardmaking about 4yrs ago when I bought my daughter a cardmaking kit which we did together, but I’m afraid I got the bug! My daughter preferred scrapbooking. I then started looking online at other blogs and this then became my passion and I loved sharing my cards with likeminded people.
I love stamping and loved finding images, but sometimes I could not find what I wanted so I started to draw myself.
This then has become my second addiction and I have never looked back, I love thinking of new images, and its just fabulous to see others take them and make them into beautiful works of art. Long may it continue!

I am sad to say that we have lost the lovely Susie as she has gone off to run her own team. We wish her lots of luck and and will miss her.
Now let’s see what my very talented team have come up with
I've used a fairy image off of a collage sheet from Swing Shift Designs. Added some vintage embellishments including hand crocheted flower from my dear friend Ellen at In a World of Craft to keep with the Victorian feel of the image.
For my card I decided to stick to black, white and silver.  I used a gorgeous stamp by Non Sequiter from their stamp plate Water Myths and Fantasy.  It's a picture by Edward Burne Jones.
I've used a Ching Chou Kuik image, coloured with Promarkers and finished it with some punched borders and flowers and a feather from my stash.
For my card I have used a stamp from In2Stamps, coloured with ProMarkers.I have embossed the border with a Tim Holtz embossing folder and used a chalk inkpad to highlight the raised parts.The paper and vellum are from Papermania. Flowers and gems are from my stash.
I used for my card the Wee Stamp - Spring Bringer and colored the image with Copics. Embellished with Wild Orchid Flowers and DooHickeys Die Cuts.
I have used a fairy image  from LOLV,  embellished with Memory box die cuts and items from my stash.
Image curtesy of the Graphics Fairy, stamp from childrens stamp set, lots of crackle paint and distress inks and great fun with my Zutter distressing machine.
I've used a fairy pyramage, an embossed panel & some pretty pink embellies
Who could resist a Wizard Tilda and her Dragon when it comes to a Fantasy theme.
I knew for this theme I would my ultimate fav images from Crafts and Me!
I decided Butterfly Keeper suited the theme and my Madeline Prima papers went perfectly with her! I coloured her with promarkers, added glitter and gloss before finishing with my flowers and dew drops
Pure Beauty...I have used a Tinkerbell stamp and I coloured her with copic & promarkers. I have highlighted tinkerbell's wing with Stickles Glitter Glue.Design paper is from Dovecraft. Embellished with paper flowers, rhinestones and fairy charm.
I've used a lovely Delicious Doodles image with just hints of red to go with the hints of red in the background.
