Fairy Of Air

It's the halfway mark already
which is a special month long one
for all kinds of Fairies.
They can be Christmas or non Christmas .
The choice is yours. 
The Butterflies will be back
in the new Year when the Letter
X will finally  be revealed!!
In the meantime here is my Fairy  inspiration for you.
You have until Dec 29th to link up your projects.
I have used this lovely digi fairy called 
'Fairy Of Air'

I have used promarkers to colour  my image 
along with a silver gel pen to highlight.
I always colour my images first and only when
I have finished do I go in search of papers to match.
I don't like my colouring to be influenced by having to use 
certain colours. So far I have always managed to find 
papers within my stash to use. 
Base card is purple card from The Works.
The design paper on the inside of the card and 
matted to the silver mirror card on the front
is by Debbie Moore Designs.
I don't buy paper packs either !!  My papers are mostly 
free from magazines (as this one was) or a digi download.
I had a small piece of pale mauve lace design paper left 
in my stash which was just large enough to cut 
the  Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles out  with.
Silver mirror card ,spotty ribbon, pearls and 
silver edging strips were in my stash.
I have left the card sentiment free to  be added later
possibly for a Birthday .

So beautiful is your card Mrs A and the colouring is gorgeous xx

Faye Wynn-Jones said...

She's beautiful and is perfect with these colours. I colour to match paper, the other way to you. But I do that coz I have a terrible eye for colour. I'm always asking if this goes with that! xx

Such an adorable fairy on your card, Mrs. A!! Love her so much and your colouring is gorgous!The frame and the spotty ribbon make her just much more sweet!Wonderful design with the mirror paper!
Design papers unfortunately are so much expensive, I use them only sometimes (and I'm sorry to cutting them ...LOL...), I always prefer use pale colours of cardstock and make my own patterns with stamps, or sponge them with inks...

Gorgeous fairy image and such a lovely card Mrs A! Tee, hee - I usually do it the same way as Faye - pick the papers first and then colour to match. Not sure if I'll manage to play along with the butterfly challenge this time but will do so if at all possible as I do have a ton of pre-coloured LOTV fairy images which would speed things up!

Sorry I'm late commenting - playing catch up here!
