The challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow is called Fairy Tales & Nursery Rhymes and we want to see vintage or shabby chic cards or other paper-crafted projects that depict either a Fairy Tale or a Nursery Rhyme.
We have a lovely sponsor this week, A Day for Daisies, and she has the most wonderful selection of images in this very category so all of us have created a card with one of these images.
I chose this image of Rapunzel called Where Is My Love (A Day for Daisies) and decided a long card was required. I struggled with this one a bit but after it was done and I looked at it a few times, it grew on me.
I made a card blank with some Bazzill card stock. I have coloured the image with pencil crayons (Prismacolors) blended with OMS (Gotrick). Then I mounted her on a piece of Bazzill card stock that has been embossed using a Bubble Wrapping Texture Fade (Tim Holtz), which gave it a bit of a castle wall feel. Then I inked the embossing with Frayed Burlap and Wild Honey Distress Ink (Ranger).
The flower vine is a Memory Box die that I cut last fall at my friend Shirley's and I inked it with Wild Honey and Peeled Paint Distress Inks (Ranger). The word Dream was cut with my Cameo, inked with Wild Honey Distress Ink and then stamped with a Shabby Chic Autumn Leaf stamp by Just Rite to give it a bit of interest.
The butterflies have all been created with paper-backed foil tape used by Heating & Air Conditioning contractors. Once I cut them and gave them some texture, I covered them with black craft paint (Folk Art) and then sponged them with some Adirondack Alcohol Inks (Ranger). Some pearl stickers (Dollarama) were added to the butterflies and vine as a final touch.
I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Whoopsi Daisy - Use A Digi
