By The Light of the Ivory Moon

Well the sun is struggling to get through here today but is just managing! Thanks for all your lovely comments and a warm welcome to new Followers. I wanted to do a magical, fairy card and so chose this digital image called 'Twilight Lily Fae' from Crafts and Me Stamps. I love orange/pinky tones and also pastel blue. Hope they work ok together? Please zoom in and have a look. I found it difficult to photograph but chose this one because it's caught the lovely glitter on the dress and wings!!!

The colouring is Promarkers:

Dress: Pastel Blue, Cornflower, Sakura Glitter pen for tassels
Hair: Tan, Cinnamon and Copic E33/E35
Skin: Almond, Blush
Wings: Blossom, Rose Pink, Stardust Stickle
Moon: Ivory and Primrose
Lamp: Coloured digitally on Seashore Software

The gorgeous paper is from my DCWV Once Upon a Time Stack and it has taken me a while to start using it. It's SO beautiful ... I didn't want to break into it.

Gorgeous Gardenia flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Ribbons, hearts and charms are from stash. Lovely sentiment is from the 'dreamy sentiments' set at Lili of The Valley

Crafts & Me - Challenge 35 - 'Anything Goes' (ends 24th May 2011)
