Fairy Fun Fridays week 4 - sketch


It's time for another Fairy Fun Friday challenge, and this week there's a fab sketch - mine turned out a little odd so don't let mine put you off! Hope you'll join in the fun this week :o)

I've used a cute little image called Twinkletoes from Prairie Fairy, coloured with promarkers with glamour dust on her wings. The papers are K&Co with Bazzill cardstock. I've been experimenting with my new blossom nesties and made a flower from lots of layers of handmade paper, sponged it a little with distress ink, scrunched it up and then fixed the layers together with a gem brad - I also gave it a quick spray of adhesive and sprinkled on some glamour dust but the photo hasn't really picked it up. I need a bit of practice with these flowers but I think I like the effect. The centre panel was cut with my new MS doily lace trim punch, sentiment was computer generated, then added some rainbow drops and a heart button (which looks a funny shade of pink, but isn't, honest!) to finish. I had intended to follow the sketch properly and was going to use a 5 x 7 card blank, but halfway through I realised the papers I'd picked out were 6 x 6 lol, so I had to adapt it to a square, oops!

I'm also entering my card for the following challenges:
