A Card for a Brand New Challenge - Emerald Faerie Gardens "Anything Goes"
Anyway todays card has been created for a brand new Challenge Blog, Emerald Faerie Garden, and the first theme is "Anything Goes", Ive got to admit these fairies are so gorgeous and I love them, they are not only cute but so easy to colour as well. Ive used this sweet image sitting on a daisy and holding a ladybug, Ive printed onto white card and then coloured with my Copic and Tria pens, afterwards I cut it out with my Nestabitilie Die No.18 then drew around the die to create the mount for it. The sentiment is one from my stash and I thought it was just lovely for this image.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of lime green pearlescent card, with a first of three papers from Donna's Bearlymine Downloads "Spring Flight" papers, this first paper is a green one with lots of flying butterflies on, the second one is a blue one with bees on and I cut it into a 5" square and Ive used the ladybug border and corner punch on it, this was layed on top of the first layer, the third piece is a strip down the middle in yellow with more butterflies on, I then wrapped a white ribbon with ladybugs on around the middle and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then positioned in the middle with the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side. To finish of Ive created three flowers from some of the left over paper two in blue and one in green, this was then stuck to the card with silicone glue on top of punched out oak leaves. The last little thing is the little ladybug down in the left hand corner.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
