Wish Upon a Star...

Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

I'm playing amongst the fairies again today (OK no funny comments please!) - and am here to share with you my DT card for Sugar Nellie.  I'm sure you've met this little fairy before (as I've used her quite often)..  but just in case.... meet 'Wish Upon A Star'.  Isn't she just gorgeous???  She available in digi form from Funky Kits HERE.

I tried to keep her a very delicate shade of pink... and to achieve this, I actually coloured/shaded more around the image with cool grays than coloured the image, to make the very pale pink show clearly.  I think it worked as I'm happy with the result...  I'm really enjoying experimenting with shading around the image at the moment.... it can make such a difference.
