Footy and Fairies

It's my nephew's birthday next week, so I have really been puzzling over what to put on his card. He is a big football fan, so this was what I came up with. I believe this character is called Onion and comes from the Daisy and Dandelion range.

I was just putting him away when I spotted some Stamptivity stamps I bought a while ago and haven't used much. That is probably because they didn't stamp as well as I anticipated. I can't remember what ink I used with them before, but this time I decided to use Versafine, and it worked much better. I stamped both the images over a lightly brayered piece of card using Kaleidacolor Fresh Greens ink. For the background I brayered a piece of the same card
after running it through the cuttlebug.

I recognise these Sally. Love the greens, Mmm must go and have another go with my set now. The football card's great too.

ooh, these are nice - I love the Stamptivity ones. I only recently came across those Kaleidacolor stamps when I saw them used on tv - they do give a lovely finish :-)

Your fairy's are beautiful too, I really need this kaleidacolor ink pad xx
