Luscious Lace time at In The Pink


Hi Lovely Blogging Buddies...

It's time for another challenge at In The Pink - and this time our theme is Luscious Lace - so out came my stash of lace to find 'just the right' bit for my card!

I fell in love with this Sherri Baldy image when one of the lovely Pink Ladies (Helene who left The Pink Palace a few weeks back), used it on one of her beautiful creations.  This gorgeous fairy has been waiting to be coloured - and I thought this would be the perfect occasion for her first outing!

Paper: Maja Designs - Sofiero
Dies: Spellbinders Floral Oval, Lil' Inkers Stitched Hearts
Lace, Ribbon and Pearl Trimming from Stash
Copics: Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, R20
Hair: E21, E34, E23
Pinks: RV91, RV95
Blue Shading: B0000, B000, Promarker Pastel Blue
White Pen for dots on shading

Hope you like what I did, I really enjoyed colouring this little lady - you know the feeling when you KNOW it's going well??

Hope you'll take a minute to check out the challenge at In The Pink - and hopefully to join in too - I'd love to see you there!

Big hugs and Happy Crafting..
