Summer Fairy Finna



I've had this image called Summer Fairy Finna from Mo coloured and sitting on my desk waiting for the card to be designed for behind it... I think I'm on a roll today as I'm getting around to doing some of the things I've needed to for a while. The image really does make me feel summery - but when I look out of my window today at Yorkshire - all I see is rain! Ah well, it's still only July - hope we have more sunny days to come!


I've used Bazzil dotty for the base - then added a border using my new Martha Stewart border punch - it's wonderful - I couldn't resist it on QVC last weekend! I've used my copics to colour the image, then matted and layered. I've added some Stamping Bella flat backs (can't remember what their proper name is), and finished it with a couple of fabric flowers that I coloured to match with the copics. Hope you like...

  11. Thanks to all of you for the nice comments - and all the good advice! I certainly need it as I'm a relatively new blogger so am learning the 'art'! I'm not sure how to do the candy bit yet - my head is spinning after looking at all the blogs I've looked at today! And now it's 2 pm and I've really got no housework done! Ah well, there are more important things, aren't there??????
