I made this card especially for the current challenge at Fashionable Stamping This months theme is to use the first verse from "My Favourite things" from The Sound of Music. Of course ever since reading this I have been singing that song - luckily for everyone else I have only been singing it in my head!
"Raindrops on roses
And whiskers on kittens
Bright copper kettles and warm woollen mittens
Brown paper packages tied up with strings
These are a few of my favourite things"
I thought about what stamps and whatnots I had to fit in with the theme. I decided to use a Kraft card for the brown paper packages, and tied a raffia ribbon for the string. For the raindrops I used a versamarker pen on a raindrops stencil, and then followed with clear embossing powder. I don't often emboss as I am unable to reach the electric plug, but someone put it on for me today, so I embossed away! I used a cat stamp for whiskers on kittens, and a window outlooking onto a rainy day. I drew a vase and a rose, to encompass the rose in the song.I added a "Happy Rainy Day" sentiment at the bottom.
It is a bit of an unusual card but my Mum is a Sound of Music fan, and she said she would like it!

Christopher Robin, Pooh, and Piglet are enjoying the Spring sunshine in Ashdown Forest. I removed a page from my "The World Of Christopher Robin" book, and adhered it to a small canvas. The branches wer ecreated with texture paste and detailed with paint.
After stamping this lovely Pooh swing stamp I coloured and fussy cut them. I hung the Happy group from the branches festooned with die cut blossoms.
Thank you for visiting us in Ashdown Forest today.
I created this page for the challenges below

I used a Lavinia Stamps Unicorn, and he told me that he wanted to be in a Magical Winter Forest! I decided to use a mixture of watercolours, glass beads, and gems to make a mystical home for him.
A close up pic of the frosty icicles, I love glass beads! : )
