Fairy in flight

It’s the first Monday of the month at Craft Your Passion so that means it’s Anything Goes!We have three super sponsors Patties Creations,Wags ‘n Whiskers and The Robins Nest.For further details on how to play along and for some fabulous inspiration from the DT and GDT’s please visit the challenge blog.

I got to play with the beautiful Fairy Lacey from Wags ‘n Whiskers.She’s been coloured with Polychromos pencils blended out with low odour oils thinners using paper stumps.I added Diamond Stickles on prats of her wings.And for once I’ve managed to capture the sparkle on camera!!To make the most of her beauty I’ve printed her large enough to cut her from the smallest Labels 4 Grand Nesties and made the easel card from the same set.I embossed the bottom yellow panel and lightly sanded it to bring the flowers outThe other pieces have been too to emphasise the embossed edges.I’ve embellished with some raffia lace ribbon and some fab sparkly ribbon I found in my stash.The pins I made myself.They started out as  pearl headed pins and I added various beads from my stash.I had bought some plain pins but couldn’t find them anywhere – until I’d tidied up!You may have noticed there are no DP’s on this card.That’s because I’ve run out.LOL!As if.I’ve probably got enough to not only paper the walls in my own home but the whole street’s as well!!No,I just fancied a change and make good use of the pretty folder.

I have to admit that this isn’t a colour combo that springs to mind and the inspiration came from this beautiful card.

    Wow Lisa! Gorgeous card and great colouring with pencils! I’ve not been too adventurous with my prismas but they’re sitting there saying ” PLAY with us!” . Love your comment about running out of paper, I’m the same I’m afraid! And love the butterflies on your stick pins, very cool idea.

    Thanks for you lovely comment on my card and the link on your post….I’m blushing here!
