Fairy Fun Fridays week 8 - colour challenge



Here's my DT card for Fairy Fun Fridays which is a colour challenge this week (inspired by the olympic colours). I'm late with my card because I've got a bit of a tummy bug and am not feeling the best! Apologies for being a very bad blogger at the moment, I underestimated how long it would take to re-arrange and sort everything in my craft room and now I'm feeling poorly. I really appreciate everyone taking the time to leave me comments though and will pop into your blogs as soon as I can!

I've used a really gorgeous new image from Prairie Fairy available here. I've coloured it with promarkers and only just realised when I went to find the link for the image, that I've coloured things slightly wrong! Some of the area under the little boy's feet should have been water, and what I assumed was a spade handle is actually a stick... can I blame being poorly? I think it could have done with some sky too, but never mind I'll do that next time! The papers are a Sweet Shoppe Designs download, sentiment from Craftwork Cards, button & gingham ribbon from my stash and used the MS zigzag punch for the edges. For once I've not followed a sketch, they kept going wrong even though I use them for nearly every card, so I kept it fairly simple!

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

Just a quick note - there are still a couple of days left on the 'kids candy' that my 7yr old son has on his blog, if anyone would like to enter - link at the top of my sidebar, it'd be lovely to get some more entries :o)

This is really lovely Lisa, what a sweet image. I don't think it matters if some bits are not what they should be. Most people would have no idea.

Hope you feel better soon.
