Passion For Promarkers - stars

This week at Passion For Promarkers it was my turn to chose the theme, and I went for 'stars', intending to make a male card... you can't go wrong with stars for boys in my opinion lol.  But I haven't had chance to use my new Fairy Glen stamps from Sugar Nellie yet, and this little cutie was stamped out and waiting to be coloured, so I thought I'd go girlie instead!




This little fairy is called Delia and I think I'll use her lots - she's so cute and easy to colour.  I've used a combination of promarkers, flexmarkers and koh-i-noor pencils to colour her in and then added loads of glamour dust.  I never do black hair because I'm not very good at it, but I thought she'd suit it so I had a go.  I've also stamped some stars around the corners using a little stamp from a Country Companions set, but I think it's made it a bit too 'fussy' looking.  The papers are Dovecraft 'back to basics' with black core'dinations, sentiment is from a set by 'the pink pajamas' and pearls from my stash.

We're sponsored by Crafter's Companion who are providing a £20 gift voucher for our very lucky winner - think of all the goodies you could buy with that :o)

I've followed the fab sketch at Sketch Saturday so I'm entering my card there... I seem to be getting back into following sketches at the moment, after months of not being able to stick to them at all.  Off to have a big catch up session now because I'm so behind with all my commenting as usual!
