The Octopode Factory - New Mystiacl Hollow Images

 I hope everyone is making the most of their Bank Holliday?

 Over at The Octopode Factory Lily has just released a new set of Images Called Mystical Hollow, you can find them HERE in her Etsy shop.
 They are available individually or as a set, If you buy the set you get a couple of silhouette images thrown in as well.

 I have used three of the new images, Both fairies and the Beautiful new lady image.They put me in mind of the typical fantasy images and for some reason the flower fairies.

 The images have been printed on to craft card and Coloured with Copic's. I flipped a couple of the fairies before printing so they were not all facing the same way.

 They were fussy cut,
next time I will make the fairies bigger, small is a pain when fussy cutting ;)All the images have been given two coats of clear embossing powder. The back ground paper is from Tim Holtz and has been cut to fit the larger Dyan Reaveley Journal. The images have been glued in place and I used a small alphabet stamp set to stamp the 'Once Upon A Time In The Land Of Fairy' as well as the stars.

 Thanks for stopping by and a big welcome and thank you to my newest followers. xx

 Remember we still have a week left of our current challenge over at our Challenge blog, here The Octopode Factory the theme is 'Eye's' You can make any type of craft project and you do not have to use and Octopode Image, although if you do your name goes into the prize draw twice xx

  2. A superb use of these fantastic images Mark. You have chosen the perfect background paper and the colouring is so good. Hugs, Jenny x

  3. I love that gorgeous lady image that you have chosen and what a fantastic, enchanting background. You've inspired me especially with the idea of stamping out a message using individual alphabet letters. I may try this out.

  4. Why do i never stamp on regulary scrapbook paper? As i saw your background, i recognized that paper. Looks great, with the flowery background and the new images are fab.

  8. Really? That's a TH paper? Wow! It works so well with your tiny fairies (yes, bigger definitely better for fussy cutting), and inspired to flip some of them to face the other way. Love this - so different for you, but very lovely.
