Fairy Tales

To view my candy giveaway please click here 


**And just in case I haven't badgered you enough...A HUGE thank you to all of you that have supported me over at the Fashionista Blog :D Only a few more days to go but boy is it a close one! I would love it if you could pop over and take a closer look :D **


Hey there! Today I have a card to show with you using one of the new release digis over at Crafts and Me. It is the gorgeous Fairy Tales designed by Sara Burrier. I love this! Perfect for so many occasions with such a whimsical feel. I am definitely having a lot of fun with these images :)


 I have used gorgeous My Mind's Eye papers - just grabbed this and it is AMAZING! I have used a Martha Stewart border punch, some cheesecloth, lace, ribbon, flowers, pearls, rhinestones and some cute prima pearl pins (phew).I have distressed all of the edges by crumpling and adding Tim Holtz Distress Ink Vintage Photo. I have also machine stitched around the edges. I love the feel of distressing + sewing... it feels really vintage and pre-loved kinda ;)



Here are the copic colours that I used on this image:

Skin: E50, E53, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Jeans: B93, B94, B97, B99 (lol ok so the shading on her jeans PROBABLY isn't what it would look like in real life but I had fun playing anyway ;)
Top/Fairy: YR000, YR02, YR07
Egg: R11, R20

Do you want to win one of the future new releases over at Crafts and Me? All you have to do it create a card with one of the brand new Dollie James stamps (these are amazing to colour btw - all that hair!) and submit it over at the Crafts and Me Store Blog by May 11th.
