Fairies

Good evening folks

The challenges at Allsorts and I love Promarkers this week are Fairies and things with wings respectively so here is my card for the challenges -
 I began by making a shaped card blank using Go-Kreate's XXL square frames frilly#2 which I matted and layered with papers from LOTV's Bonnets and bowties and Bonnets and bowties solids paper pads. I then added some lace (from the Ribbon Girl) to the centre of the card.
The image is from LOTV (you can't beat LOTV for fairy stamps and they are having a sale this week - all stamps are reduced. You can find there website here) which I have coloured with the following Promarkers -
  • hair - chestnut, walnut and henna
  • skin - satin, blush and dusky pink
  • wings - ivory and pastel beige
  • clothes - pink carnation, rose pink, fuschia pink, cerise and pink lobster
  • grass - bright green and forest green
  • teapot and cup - raw sienna, cocoa, burnt sienna, walnut and henna
  • tea - april shower
  • sky - pastel blue
I added lots of glitter to the wings and the headdress - well she is a fairy and fairy law states lots of glitter. Then I cut the image out with Spellbinder's floral ovals and inked whilst still in the die with tumbled glass distress ink. I made a frame using a green paper from the solids paper pad, a Spellbinder's floral ovals die and a Spellbinder's oval nestie. I attached the frame to the image and then added the whole thing to the card using Pinflair.
I made some flowers using papers from the pads and some Tonic petal pairs punches which I arranged on the card as shown along with a Spellbinder's springs die cut which I chopped up into smaller sprigs. To finish I added some pink pearls to the centre of the flowers.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -
