Spotlight on Fancy Folds at Crafty Cardmakers

Its another spotlight challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers and this fortnight we are looking at Fancy Folded cards.

I'd started seeing these centre step easels around blogger but for the life of me couldn't find one when I needed to look at one so after much searching and a little help from a friend I found one on Sandy's blog, seems she had the same trouble finding one too so made her own!  Its really really easy to follow and so quick to make, Sandy's made a template you can print out or in my case I just followed the instructions which were so easy. I've used a new image by Hannah Lynn called Kathleen available at Crafts & Me and I coloured with promarkers and sakura stardust pens.  Papers I just picked up at a show on saturday and was itching to use them, they're by Crafty Individuals.  I've used a couple of 1" square stampboard coloured with starburst stains and I've stamped & embossed a swirl from a paper artsy stamp plate and scratched out highlights.  The little pearls are hot fix and are a mother of pearl colour and the sentiment is from Stamping All Day.

I'd also like to enter this into...

Totally Gorjuss - Not a square
Gingersnap - Inchies
Craftalicious - Anything goes
A spoonful of sugar - Sparkle & Shine
Polka Doodles - Own embellishments (Stampbord)
CRAFT - Shaped card

Thanks for looking :)

Totally wonderful Vix!
I love Arthur Rackham and in the colours you've used, you've conjured up the same nautical 'feel' to your mermaid.
Just love it!
