Quixotic Paperie Challenge Blog Challenge No. 5

It’s Wednesday and it is the Fifth Quixotic Paperie challenge.

This week’s challenge, as picked by Martine, is:


Here is my offering today – I’ve used My Mind’s Eye Colourful Christmas papers and the Bow-Easy™ Template for the silver bow.

The super cute Gossamer Cornwand Fairy from Amy Young at CC Designs has been coloured with Copic Markers and Stickles glitter. I’ve given her some sparkly lipstick too – now I want some glitter lippy!

Little snowflake punch shapes have been used in place of the little spiders at the bottom of her skirt to turn her into a Christmas fairy and I’ve used Glossy Accents on her wings and shoes.

Yeah – but what about the Charm? I mean that is what the challenge is about after all?

Well I’ve used a Fleur De Lys charm, that I’ve snipped off the hanging hoop with my pliers then fixed it to one of the little wooden Christmas tree shapes that I had decorated with white paint, book paper and Rock Candy crackle paint.

I would have used a Christmas charm – but I didn’t have one! So a little creative panic and hey presto LOL!

But before you rush off, have you checked out if you have won November’s £20 shopping spree at Quixotic Paperie?
