My Favourite Stamp/Image!

 

Hi Lovely Blogging Friends...

Time for another In The Pink challenge.... and this one was a little bit difficult to THINK about - but not to do - thank goodness!


Our theme is 

MY FAVOURITE STAMP/IMAGE

Hmmmm.... now...  there's the difficult bit!  My favourite image will depend on what I'm colouring at the time - sooo I had to do some thinking - and some looking back on my older cards.... and these little Sugar Nellie Fairies come up over and over.....  SOOOOOOO the decision was made!


I think I coloured this little fairy in blues last year - but I do think she suits her pink too!  and she did need lots of glitter - no self respecting fairy is seen without her sparkle!

I decided once again to make her wings and star 3D - the only problem being that another image has to be printed out and then the wings have to be cut off - to use on the first.  I get tears in my eyes each time I cut wings from a fairy (even if it's to use on another)......  especially if the rest of her sits in my waste bin for too long staring up at me so sadly...  sniff........


Materials:
Sugar Nellie Elf Made Magic Digi Image
Paper - No name sorry - been in my stash for years - bought in the US.

Colouring - Copics

  11. I recognise those papers too Christine and I have racked my brain to try and remember who they were by but to no avail. One superb image and you have really done her proud, brilliant card.

  12. Christine, I think you already know how much I adore this card! Everything about it is absolutely exquisite. This is one of my favourite SN fairies and you have coloured her beautifully. I am very smitten though by her gorgeous 3D wings. I love the way you have shaded around the image with the stronger colour under those scrummy wings. This is a truly wonderful card Christine, you are soooooo clever.

    The 3D elements are lovely...just don't get me started thinking about the poor wingless fairy in the bin..sob sob :-(
    Big hugs, Kat xx
