Lilibean Fairy :-)

I won the Pollycraft Monday Challenge last week :-) The prize was my choice of 5 of Paula from Pollycraft's fantastic images :-) I love the new Lilibean Fairys ,, so I chose 3 of those ,, and the New Moon and Star fairys ,, they are all so lovely :-) Thank you Paula :-) x x


I made my card following Martine's lovely sketch on the Basic Grey Challenge :-) I coloured the image with copics and tried a new technique ( to me ) on this ,, feathering :-) I am doing an online copic course at My Creative Classroom at the mo and this is one of the things we are learning :-) As luck would have it the Copic Creations Challenge is feather blending ,,, you can see this on her dress and on the butterfly :-)



I inked the edges with broken china and shabby shutters distress ink and added copic glitter ren here and there for sparkle ,, I also added stickles to her wings and the odd place here n there :-) I stamped a Tim Holtz swirl in the corner with beige brilliance ink,, looks berrer IRL !! I also added some Robins Nest Dew drops at the top :-) The flower and leaves were from Wild Orchid Crafts,



I am also entering this into the Quixotic Challenge whose theme is 'I Believe in Fairies' :-)
Thanks for looking :-) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)


I have a GORGEOUS blog candy sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp if you would like to take a peek it is at the top of my blog :-)
