A simple Fairy wish!

Hello there! I am back after a busy weekend and then a day or so of catching up on the housework and laundry .. .. the garage is looking almost empty but there are bags of rubbish for the bin men (hope they take them all) and a stack waiting for the tip .. .. and at last the floor is down in the lounge and the skirtings fixed - now it's fill and paint time again!

But first, I needed a little relaxation time so finally got to colouring one of Sylvia's sweet Wee Stamps digital fairy images I've had on my pc for ages, and now at last can print out! And, as she is a fairy her wings needed a touch of sparkle so I played safe and used a quickie glue pen and some loose glitter that is now top of the stash pile.  I did have a little difficulty layering up the shades of colour on her hair .. .. not sure what I've done differently as it's the same card I've been using for a while, perhaps going through the printer somehow changes the properties?  I will have to watch and see.

Here is the card, taken in the glorious sunshine we've been having here in North Cornwall (no sign of the promised rain, yet!) so shadows and a little washed out on the colours, but they are pastel anyway. And I just noticed there's a stray pearl to the side of the card on the blue cushion .. .. but now I've looked it's gone, how strange! I've coloured with my Copics then found a scrap of digi paper from my stash pile to add to the front of the small scallop card, inking the edges with spun sugar DI.  The white lace mat and matching paper strip across the bottom of the card are Marianne Design dies, as are the flowers and leaves too.  I added the lace and pearls but kept things clean and simple - well as CAS as it gets for me that is! I left off adding a greeting so I could use the card for any occasion, and will just add something inside when needed.

So, here's the list of Marianne Design dies I've used:
circle - CR1248
strip - CR1250
flowers with the smallest die in  COL1323
small skeleton leaves from LR0156

The Addicted to Stamps blog are playing bingo and I can make a cross with two diagonal lines .. .. first with lace, pearls and a doily, and second with die cuts, pearls and flowers.

And at the Corrosive challenge blog it's an anything goes theme!
