Fairytale magic

This time I have a couple of projects one of which you will realise wasn't done specifically for the challenge I will enter it in but I think fits with the challenge theme quite well.

This embroidery I finished a litlle while ago and it sits on my dining room wall as I thought it was an apt place to put it. I know strictly speaking Pooh bear stories aren't traditionally thought of as a fairytale but I suppose they along with many of the modern day childrens stories are probably the equivalent of a modern day fairytale.( sorry about the glass reflection)

I would like to enter this as my first entry into the challenge at By the cute and girly whose theme is fairytales. My second entry to their challenge is a card which I have silk painted, I love the vibreancy that you get when silk painting  and its so satisfying as you see the outlines fill and come to life. This card reminds me of the little mermaid a truely traditonal fairytale but now most probably thought of as a disney story and not Hans Christian Andersons. I know there's no mermaid but it's just what this image makes me think about, hope its ok.

I would also like to enter this card into the challenge at Magical crafts who have a challenge of animal antics. The pooh embroidery could also be entered as its full of animals but I'd best check first to see if you can enter more than once first. They also have a dt call on at the mo so why not pop over and see .

Your embroidery picture is great fun and hanging in just the right place, it must have taken you a long time to do. Your silk painted card is lovely and vibrant. Thanks for playing along at Magical Crafts.
