Inspired By All The Little Things #65

Hello friends.  There's a little bit of magic going on over at this weeks challenge at Inspired By All The Little Things.

Can't you imagine a little fairy or gnome (or troll) appearing in that picture?!  It's definitely a great one to let the imagination soar!!  I kept with the forest scene and then added a couple of whimsical critters from The Purple Onion company.  Take a look:


Started with a smooshed water color background and then added a Gina Marie Designs die cut forest layer over the background.  I colored with a combination of my Zigs and Copics the owl and mouse before adding them to the enchanted forest.  Yes it's enchanted because I added quite a liberal dose of magic pixie dust!  Well ok, maybe not pixie dust, but a generous spraying of Sheer Shimmer Sparkle Spritz which is basically the same thing...just doesn't show up well in photos because it's magic!!  :0)  I added the mushrooms and embossed sentiment banner from MFT's Happy Hedgehogs set.  And a little enamel dot as a nod to Amanda Bodine who is the featured Guest Designer this week and likes to use enamel dots (or sequins) to her creations.

I'm getting in under the wire (again!!), so there's only till tomorrow (29th) to play along with this challenge, but it is a fun one, so head over and check out all the FABULOUS cards from Amanda and the DT and then play along right HERE.

Thanks for stopping by today ... I love it when you do!
