Challenge # 23 Reminder Quirky Mythical Ladies.

  Hi everyone! 

In this reminder. We want to see beautiful and mythical Ladies:

mermaids, elves, warrior, fairies, goddeses, nymphs etc. Because they are the inspiration for the men,  they are also the same for women. They make differents choices, they star in many stories in different cultures. Those stories are filled with magic, love, faith, hope and fantasy.  I invite you to dream and create a project with these mythical ladies. These women are glorious.

Now here is a video that might inspire you! 

 "You'll Never Walk Alone"

When you walk through the storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark

Walk on, through the wind
Walk on, through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk alone

When you walk...

Walk on....

Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone
You'll never walk, you'll never walk alone

I used Fairy Moon to make a swing card.


Hi everyone! Today I want to honor the Ladies Magicians, curious women who have aroused great interest in magic and illusion. 
  They break rules with their beauty and grace. They take the work to us dream.For my project I used the beautiful digi from our generous sponsor Stitch Bear's.  The wonderful
This project is coloured with acuarelable pencil and I used Distress Ink. 


Is not well, so running late. Will be here later.
I'm still not well, just a virus picked up from my little grandson, but I've manged to complete my card. I used Tiny Bubbles, she has pretty wings. Do you like the punk cat? I have added a little glitter to her wings, and she is coloured with Promarkers. I'm still in Christmas mode so she is on a Christmas card.


My first one for this reminder is a bendy card, and I used the Roxanne from Hope Jacare Underwater girls, provider for our amazing sponsor StichyBear's Digi Stamps. And as like the las week, I used the same technique, and some additional cutting files from Silhouette.

My second one, a card I made for a special friend. I painted the beautiful Who Me image using Faber Castell water pencil. By the way, this adorable image is also from StichyBear's Digi Stamps


This is a sad myth:
According to the Greek myths Ariadne was the daughter of the Cretan king, Minos.
She fell in love with the Athenian hero Theseus, who was coming to Crete to kill the Minotaur and to rescue the Athenian youth. Thus Ariadne helped Theseus by promising her to take her to Athens as his wife. She gave him two special gifts -- a sword and a clue of thread -- to find a way back from the Labyrinth after killing the Minotaur.
As promised, she left Crete with Theseus and with the Athenian youth and they stopped on the island of Naxos. While Ariadne was asleep, Theseus deserted her in Naxos.
My card represents this myth. 
Ariadne - or Arianna- digi provided by Stitchy Bear, was color with Spectrum Noir pens.

Well, silly me used a lovely steampunk fairy, but one  StichyBear's Digi Stamps no longer has on their books, so of course I can't show it here, instead here's last weeks creation, which I only managed to add on Friday to last weeks post, using Fairy Moon printed over some PinkPetticoat snowflakes paper, with silver eyelash wool, silver corner diecuts, which I thought went well with the stars on the digi, plus lace, tiny punched out snow flakes and die cut sentiments.
