This weeks images from Digital Two for Tuesday are just gorgeous and a much needed reminder that it won't be long until Spring is here (hopefully lol). I really loved the image used on this card for their challenge. It made me giggle to imagine the flowers spending the dark winter days deciding what to wear for their summer finery.
The fairy is coloured with derwent inktense pencils with a little yellow sakura stardust around her head. I love the fact that you can make her look like different flowers depending on the colours you use - I went for fuchsia colours and they are one of my favourite flowers. I made the mirror by making a mask and spraying through with CC Spray'n'Sparkle in Silver - it doesn't show up very well on the scan but looks fab on the card. She is matted and layered onto some mat black card and some cerise mirri board. I used white card to make an 8x8 blank and added a matt of black card, stamped with a Wendie Rhodes fuchsia stamp and versamark before adding some mica powders in purple, pink and green (they look blue, gold and silver on the pic because of the mica though). I also made a little border by masking the same stamp and colouring with inktense pencils. Both were finished off with a gold edge using a pentouch pen. I then used DS adhesive film to attach a pressed fuchsia flower to an acrylic square and added some black glitter to the back, matted it onto some cerise mirri and added a hot pink bow made from organza ribbon.
To finish the card off I added a few little black gems and a sentiment from Paper Artsy which I though was perfect for the card.
I'm also entering it in the following challenges:
Digital Tuesday - All Things Girly
Sketch and Stash - the sketch has been rotated and apart from the new Digi image everything was from my stash
Pile it on - Flowers
Paper Sundaes - A Glittery Spring
Thanks for looking
