Challenge #23 Quirky Mythical Ladies.

To see who won the last challenge click HERE or scroll down to the next post.

Hi everyone! I'm Kemly Sc, this is my first ever hosting of a Quirky Crafts Challenge! Welcome to a new challenge! I'm so happy to do this.
Stitchy Bear Digital Stamps

The theme for this Challenge is Mythical Ladies. All the women are in stories: 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 filled with magic, love, faith, hope and fantasy.  I invite you to dream and create a project with these mythical ladies.

Our generous sponsors StichyBear's Digi Stamps


 1st prize of 3 images of choice from the whole of the Stitchy Bear store

2nd prize any 3 of the DT's chosen images

3rd Prize any 2 of the DT's chosen images

Now here is a video that might inspire you!

"When You Believe"
Celtic Woman. 

"....There can be miracles, when you believe
Though hope is frail, it's hard to kill
Who knows what miracles you can achieve
When you believe, somehow you will
You will when you believe...

You will when you
You will when you believe
Just believe...in your heart
Just believe
You will when you believe ..."

The images the team used are:

Stitchy Stamps


Beary Dust Stamps


Hope Jacare


Floppy Latte Designs


For my project I used Stitcher Fae stamp from our sponsor Stitchy Bear. I did a Spool of Thread for my scissors and others things!!


The Muses are the Greek Mythology nine goddesses of the inspiration of literature, arts and sciences.
This stunning Muse digi is from Ike´s Art and it was provided by our generous sponsor Stitchy Bear.
I printed the digi on tissue paper and colored with Spectrum Noir pens, and then add it with a heat gun to the candle. This is the first time I try out this technique and I love the result. Hope you like it too. 


Hi people!  For this project I used the beautiful digi Butterfly Love from our generous sponsor. I made a box card. The fairies are mystics and magics bringing love to the World. They are in a child's mind forever. In the fantasy stories, the fairy is present like a companion to play.

Hello everyone, for today´s new challenge, I made an easel card using the Hope Jacare Underwater girls, this time I used Octavia, and this beauty ladies are from StichyBear's Digi Stamps. I printed the images in a diferent papers, cut and paste it. The paper collection I used: By The Sea from Graphic 45. See you soon!!!
Sorry I'm late, I did leave a note but it seems to have vanished! When I started colouring Yddris Yddris by Alipeeps I didn't know what I was going to do with her. She ended up with decoupaged hair because I coloured the first one with green skin and didn't like it, this one has a green tinge instead. Suddenly she turned into a Christmas card! She reminds me of Lord of the Rings (I know - that was the last challenge lol).

Lyn will be along soon.
Here's my card at last! (Thursday/Friday!!) I've printed this fairy image by Floppy Latte Designs called Fairy Moon over some snowflakes by PinkPetticoat. Disdressed and inked all the edges  and layered it up, (there's about seven or eight layers)  added loads of Stickles glitters glue, sticky lace, eyelash wool and die-cut corners, which I thought matched the stars around the moon quite well!
