Casting Down

07:53:00



Hi everyone! Today I have a card to share with you that I created for the new challenge blog 'A Die for a Sketch'. I used one of the beautiful fairy images from Crafts and Me; Casting Down by Sara Burrier. As you all know I am a big lover of fairies and she is a dream to colour :)


I think I am in a bit of a purple mood lately! Sorry if you are getting sick of seeing it but I am finding it a lot of fun to colour :)


Super lush papers by Prima. Aren't they so pretty! Lol stray cheesecloth AGAIN - see if you can spot it! hehe and I didn't even use it this time....it is trying to nuzzle it's way onto all of my projects! And don't you like my little shooting stars? :D

Used my copics to colour her up and here are the colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29
Dress: V000, V01, V04, V06, V09

Have you seen the sale over at Crafts and Me this week too? 25% off all rubber stamps! Don't miss out! :)
