Fairy Kiki


Well today is my birthday, so I've treated myself to some me time sitting at my desk with double sided tape in hand...... It's raining outside, so I thought 'what better way to spend my day?'. But like I said on facebook, my impetus has done a runner somewhere, and I have loads of images all coloured up, and a pile of beautiful cardstock, but can I match one with the other? Not a chance! But I've done my best with this one. Kiki is such a beautiful image available from Mo at Digital Pencil Too. I've used my copics to colour her which I SO enjoy doing, and am learning the shading all the time. I've used some Lasting Impressions dotty pink paper, which I've had in my stash for years, and some plain pink for the matting. I've tied a heart charm on a touch of organza ribbon, and finished off with a few punched flowers and of course....... some prisma-GLITTER!

Oh, and I have to tell you girls, I've been given some fab craft racks for my birthday - from www.craftracks.co.uk. We decided to go over and give them a visit in Batley near Leeds, and got a couple of multi-racks and also a 12 x 12 storage rack! YAY!! So I now have no excuse for not being able to find the right inkpad or bottle of whatever I'm looking for. I'll post pics of the resulting tidy room when I get round to doing it....
