Magic Toadstool Wishes


Does your mind ever go blank when someone asks you your favourite book, song, film?  There are just too many to choose from.  When I saw this weeks challenge at  CAS-ual Fridays - 



CFC38: Clean And Simple Movie Inspiration!  From old classics to currently nominated, any genre (but let's keep our projects PG! *giggle*) Make sure to tell us which movie inspired your CAS creation. 


- my mind went blank.  Creativity had left the building!  However this morning I spied the toadstool stamp from a retired set called Queue Up and immediately The Spiderwick Chronicles came to mind.  I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier because as a family we had all recently sat cuddled up on the sofa watching it.  It's a fab fantasy adventure film.  

So the toadstools on my card are the magic circle of toadstools that surrounds their house to protect the chronicles from the evil ogre Mulgarath.  It's all good stuff honestly!
  
I stamped the toadstools in Island Indigo and use my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig so I could create a continuos line.  (Don't want to break the spell!)  I coloured in the toadstools in Pool Party used a Blender Pen and ink pad.  I then applied Glossy Accents to the tops of the toadstools and along the grassy line, before sprinkling Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  Well it is a magical circle of toadstools after all! 

As I  just wanted to add Wishes as my sentiment I again used my Blender Pen to pick up Island Indigo from my ink pad and apply it directly onto one of the stamps from Happiest Birthday Wishes. 

Because I've choosen Aqua colours I'm also entering this into Less is More.  The colours really suited the magical fairy feel that I was looking for. 

Hope you are all having a lovely day and if anyone is lacking inspiration then do check out these two wonderful challenge blogs.  You are sure to find bucket loads there! x

Aileen this card is beautiful...magical, I love this colour with the image, it's not an obvious choice for toadstools but it works so well.
