some fairytale cards

little red riding hood is my favourite fairytale, i much prefer my stories to be dArK and sCaRy and contain wolves and witches rather than fairy godmothers and handsome princes!

i think this set of cards reflects that!



this card is available in my new folksy shop

http://www.folksy.com/shops/maximumRABBITdesigns

where i am also selling vintage buttons and haberdashery supplies.

there is a lot of texture on this card that is not really showing in the photos




this is my first attempt at decoupage - it's a bit of a faff but i was pleased with the effect.

disclaimer * these are NOT for the fairytale swap !!!! *

just a little teaser for the "fairytale swap"


the deadline is "dead close" now but i'm still not finished - that seems to just be the way i work - give me a deadline and i work right up against it !



I have really enjoyed this theme BUT am finding it soooo hard to stay away from the "dark side" as my partner is the "light and fluffy type" {in her own words}!





i'm a bit into making packaging at the moment too
here is a mini envelope for this set of very cute vintage ladybird buttons



" oooohh give us a kiss!!"
