A wing and a mare

This week at Craft Your Passion the theme is Fairies & Fantasy.We have the fabulous Delicious Doodles as our sponsor.Head on over to check how to play and win.Don’t forget to take a look at the DT and GDT inspiration,they’ve done a wonderful job!

For my card I’ve used Mythical Pegasus from Delicious Doodles.PLEASE NOTE : I cannot take credit for the beautiful shading on this image.That must go to Teri the artist who created this incredible work of art – for that’s what it is!.The only contribution I made was a teeny bit of pencil shading under the hooves to ground the image.I simply printed it out and felt it really needed nothing else.I decided to try my hand at paper weaving a background and to keep a monochrome look to compliment the digi stamp.Being the mathematical genius I am (so totally not!) I’d cut the strips to 1/2″ and then tried to make it easier by lining the first horizontal piece in the middle.One big problem…I was then left with a 1/4″ to spare top and bottom,instead of being flush like the sides.So trying to make it look like it was really all part of the clever design plan I took my scissors and chopped the top and bottom pieces at angles.I punched a border and threaded it with some ribbon,carrying on the weaving theme,amd added some black gems to both the image and sentiment.
