Challenge 82 Create a Fairytale Scene

Welcome back to Crafty Cardmakers. The team and I would like to wish you all a very Happy 2013.
Our challenge for the next two weeks is for you to create a Fairytale Scene. Our hostess is Eva.

We are delighted to be sponsored for this challenge by

We are kindly sponsored for this challenge by The Stampman (and Lady of course!) who are ofering the winner a £10 voucher for their store, you can spend this online, in the shop or if you're lucky enough to see them at a show!  They have a ton of items in store, enough to tickle any crafty tastebud.

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!

Now over to the team for some inspiration
I used Bo Bunny DP for this fairy tale scene card, and images from Magnolia. I created my fairytale scene with mini magnolia stamp and a stamp set from Dovecraft.

I have used an unknown stamp (sorry!!) that my mum gave me ages ago and have coloured it using chalks. I thought it was perfect for the Fairytale theme. I have created the puffy clouds by colouring in with a snow marker and then heating with my heat gun!!
I've gone to my trusty Photoshop Elements to produce a landscape background. I added two fairies from Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps, and printed. To finish, I've layered and added a couple of Sizzix swirls!

I've used an image by A Day For Daisies and a sentiment from Hero Arts paired with lots of sparkle to create my fairytale scene.  This card is destined for a sister of mine who deserves to dream big

I have to admit this challenge was a bit of a head-scratcher but I got there in the end with my sleeping beauty themed card. I used a CC design stamp of a girl with and apple and then created a scene around her and added the get well sentiment.
I have made an easel card (only my 2nd one ever!) for my little princess as its almost her 10th Birthday. I have used a Magnolia stamp and the background is a digi stamp from Make It Crafty. My sentiment is computer generated.

My card is a 6" square card and I have used distress ink pads, big and juicy ink pads, stamps from my stash coloured with promarkers and Marianne dies to make this scene.

My card is made using  DCWV papers and the  image is a Stampivity stamp, the inspiration came from the story of Rapunzel.

Here I took the chance of using two images that I have not used before, and that takes me to my childhood fairytales; Princesses and castles. The castle image is a rubberstamp from Magnolia, Sweden and the sweet princess with the dragon is a digital image from The Paper Shelter. It's all coloured with my dear markers from Letraset. Designer paper from Magnolia, Sweden and so is the dies used.

I have made a pop-up card using a CC Design stamp and made a video at my blog showing how the image pop-up when the card is open, please take some time to have a look. Thanks

I have used a very cute Lili of the Valley image coloured with ProMarkers. The background is inked with distress inks to look like the sea. I have highlighted with stickles and embellished with shells cut using a Marianne die. The frame was die cut using a spellbinders die and embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder. A pretty bow, sentiment and pearls complete this girlie card.
I don't have any 'fairytale' style stamps so I used my Silhouette to cut a 'Princess and the Frog' image. The tag base is cut from card and DP which I sponged with a little Distress Ink. Added some star gems, ribbon and an Inkadinkado sentiment. 

I created my fairytale scene using some of the lovely Magnolia stamps and DooHickey dies that I own,
