Crafty Weekend Makes #2 - Fairy Power

Thank you all so much for your kind comments about my colouring for Copic 4 that I posted on Sunday. I really do think I have grown in confidence since doing it, and it's made me want to keep practising when I can. I still have so much to learn - light source and shading is my constant bugbear - but when people are encouraging it makes you want to go on! 

This card was made on my recent crafty weekend with Lisa and Steph. Isn't this fairy utterly adorable? It's from a recent Clearly Besotted release and you know I can't resist those stamps.....

I started out by making my background panel with my Gansai Tambi Pearl Colours - yes, I will be getting the Gem Colours at some point, I can't resist these paints! I used them all to get rainbow colours.

I then took three die cuts of the MFT Snowdrifts Cover Up and glued them together and adhered them to the pearl background. 

I then took a long time to work out what I wanted to have on top and I decided with all the pretty colours, the fairy was perfect. I coloured her with the Copics I'd taken with me and fussy cut her out.

It was a pretty quick assembly when I got home onto a white card blank with the fairy on top. As usual, I couldn't decide on a sentiment, so have left it blank. Sometimes a pretty fairy card doesn't need a sentiment, right?

I'm going to link this up to the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge which is showcasing MFT and also Anything Goes.

Thanks so much for stopping by, it is truly appreciated, and as always, Happy Crafting!

She is so cute she doesn't need a sentiment 😊

I love how this turned out Ruth! Those pearl colours for the background I think are just perfect - and I adore the rainbow you created. I also really like the snow drifts die on this, it just goes to show that it's not just for snow drifts, I have also used it on several other cards in another way. It adds interest without detracting from the other elements. Agree, the fairy was adorable, and in those colours, the perfect match! Such a sweet card, Lisa xx

Oh my, this is super sweet. The background is perfect, must get my Tambis on the go again (too busy with my copics at the mo')
