Fairy and Castles Magic and Pixie Dust...Inkspirational Challenge #143~Photo Inspiration


Our wonderful Guest Designer, Karren, and my fabulous teammates

are delighted to welcome you to Inkspirational Challenge #143~Photo Inspiration.  Such a lovely vintage (or is that shabby chic?) image..the frame, the music background, the ballerina. A seemingly simple photo, but with a breadth of inspirational choices.

Two cards today that are essentially the same, but different. I've transposed the musical background into stenciled rows of magical castles and the ballerina into a dancing fairy (Poppy Stamps: Graceful Faerie).  Sentiments are also from Poppy Stamps.  A shimmery card-stock fairy here.., set atop Worn Lipstick distress oxide castles...

and a a Peacock Feathers distress oxide inked one here (with shimmery wings, of course) and Cracked Pistachio distress oxide castles...

I think you can likely guess who one of these fairies will be fluttering to; yes, Ms. Niece. Now, to decide which one...

Once again, the spotlight turns to you!
Looking forward to seeing your photo inspired creations in the gallery!
