Prince Charming is just one kiss away...

Hi, Stephanie here and I have a fun spring project for you and I am using a "charming" little stamp from Faerie Song Art Stamps as my focal point as well as other goodies from Altered Pages !  I will include a supply list at the bottom of this post for your convenience.

We have all heard the tales of kissing a frog in hopes of meeting Prince Charming, right?  Well, your Prince is here....sort of.  

I began with cutting a circle out of a piece of heavy cardstock using the glass cloche as my template.   This would ultimately be the base of my design that most everything gets glued on to. 
Next, I created the toad stool for my little Prince to perch upon.  

I did this using the cardboard toilet paper role, cut to a smaller height and diameter.  I included a typical Bic pen in the image above for size reference.   I then covered it with vintage text page.  I made the top of the stool with a bunched up piece of paper molded into a "mushroom" shape also covered with vintage text paper. 

Next,  I worked on the base of the cloche.  I covered the circle that I had previously cut out, with vintage music sheet.  I then added two shades of green tulle to create the garden floor.  I then began adding all the fun goodies.  Some of this was from the one of a kind goodies from Altered Pages and some from my stash. 

Next, I stamped my frog image using VersaMark clear ink and black embossing powder.  I then colored him with my water brushes using a few shades of green and yellow Gelatos.  I used red Gelato for the rose and my Silver nib Wink of Stella pen for his crown. 

I then added some paper flowers and leaves along with some extra garden fun in the way of teeny tiny terra cotta pots, bunnies and a little river rock for the bunnies to rest on. 

Add, the cloche over the top and there you have it.  A fun size  (top to bottom only about 6 or 7 inches)  garden faerie Prince Charming. 

I hope you enjoyed.  Please let me know you were here by leaving a quick comment.

 Handy Tip for Artists, Recyclers and Neat Freaks! I have a follow-up to the Citra-Sol method for creating fabulous background pages and collages.   I bought a big bag of navel oranges and realized I had the ingredients to make my own solvent!   Simply take a clean glass jar, peel the rind from the oranges and place all the rind/peels, without the pulp (tangerines, oranges, navels) into the jar.   Pour enough vinegar over the peels to cover them.    Allow the jar to sit for a week or two and VOILA!     You have made your own solvent for literally pennies.    You will notice the liquid getting a bit thicker than the plain vinegar and it does not smell bad!!! I now have a  HUGE jar on the window sill!       Be careful and only use this after testing on a safe spot.
