Redonkadoodles Shy Fairy

Hi everyone, well I'm currently off work for a week so in between days out with the kids I'm getting lots of crafting done. I wanted to share this card with you that I made yesterday. It was another one of those 'Just for fun' cards. I wanted to try out my new purple copics. Up to last week I only had 4 brown and 4 pink copics to try them. I have ummed and aahhhhed for a while as to whether I should continue and get anymore. I took the plunge and after selling off some craft items I don't use or have bought and then decided I don't like, I went ahead last week and ordered quite a few more and now have 115 copics in a mixture of ciaos and sketches. I bought a few from each colour group and then went for my favourite colours and finished off the collection in that colour group. (I am really struggling to get a skintone that works for me though so if anyone could help me with this pleaseeeeee leave me a comment below - much appreciated) 

My absolute ultimate all time favourtie colour is purple. So first out of the box was the purple shades. Before now I have been a promarker girl through and through but I found purple promarkers just didn't cut it for me. BUT copics - wow!  I decided to stick to promarkers for the skin (Coral, Sunkissed Pink and blush) I just love this combo and cant seem to match up an equivalent so I may just stick to using PMs for skin. 

Anyway enough of me waffling on lets look at the card. 

The image is The Shy Fairy from redonkadoodles found HERE
The metal corners, pearls, and cheery lyn butterfly dies are from That Craft Place
The card shape, rolled flowers, tag, and banner are all cut on the Silhouette Cameo also available from That Craft Place

I am really happy with her wings BUT I did intend to glitter them a bit but I forgot! 

I finally got round to using the spiral stems Manda sent me in her amazing blog candy that I won, I think I will be off to get some more of these I think they look great. 

Thanks for stopping by. I will be back on Sunday with another DT project for Here Come The Boys so come back then! 

Challenges I would like to enter this card into:

  6. What a fabulous creation Stacey. I'm a big purple fan so a very pleasing colour pallette. I love all the little extra, the bunting and butterflies, (I'm a huge butterfly fan too!) And I love the image, and the hair especially. The shy fairy.... Mmmm something tells me she might not be as shy as she's making out.....

    Good luck and thanks for entering the challenge this week.
