Fairy Tale

Over at Rosie-D's this week they challenged us to make an item with a fairy tale theme. What better fairytale has been written (well Elf tale really) than the awesome "Lord of the Rings"?. OK it's for adults, but we have to have some fantasy in our lives sometimes. Using a couple of the images from the fantasy range from Tanda Stamps, I hope I have depicted Gandalf the Grey and Galadrial as recognisable. I apologise to the purists out there for giving Galadrial a crystal ball and not a bowl, but it was the nearest I had. She is in her little arbour of flowers ( mostly from Crafty Feelings). I stamped Gandalf in grey and coloured with promarkers, Galadrial is heat embossed in silver with just a touch of PM's for added colour. The trees have just a light dusting of glimmer mist for that magical touch. All mounted on pearlised green paper. Added some more rings round the edge just for good measure.

I am also entering this into Pear Tree Designs challenge as the request there is for flowers. There are just a few on here.
