Fanciful Faeries

I seem to be using a lot of fairies in my craft projects lately, don't know what it is about the craft world but fairies rule! Just so much detail to colour and add that bit of sparkle to, give me an excuse to be girlie. I am probably one of the least girlie girls I know so it makes a refreshing change.

I've used the beautiful Prairie Fairy DT call image to create this card. Really pretty image I think she looks young and fresh and the colours I chose to go with her are young and fresh and quite springlike yet remaining quite muted. I used powder blue and bluebell promarkers to colour most of the image, adding a touch of bling once again with my clear star gelly roll pen. The cards sparkles in the right light and her wings positively glow. Used some K & Company scrapbooking sheets which I got in a boxed set with other bits and bobs to create a softly coloured background to match the fairy colours and added some co-ordinating ribbons to the background. She needed a little more bling I felt so used a couple of tiny gems and an embellishment of a flower which accentuates the other colours quite nicely. A sentiment to finish it off from stock and here it is, and not an easel in sight lol
