Away With The Fairies

Good morning I hope you are having a smashing week.  Here in Blackpool it has been gorgeous weather - clear blue skies and sunshine and it looks like it may be the same today.  Over at The Paper Shelter there is a new challenge starting today and the theme is "Away With The Fairies".
We want to see your creations with a fairy on it.  I had no problem trying to find a Paper Shelter fairy image as there are loads of gorgeous fairies to choose from.  Here is the one I went with:


I used the adorable Everyone Can Fly which is available here. Now I have a real problem colouring blonde hair and usually avoid it at all costs because it always turns out brassy.  It doesn't matter what combination of Copics I use I always get brassy so excuse the hair I think she needs to change her hairdresser!  I have added glamour dust to their wings.  The papers are Nitwits Time for Tea with Coredinations card stock.  I used Spellbinders Grand Nesties Circles to cut her out and matted on Grand Stately Circles.  The sentiment is Waltzingmouse and I cut the tag with a Go Kreate die.  Impression Obsession Butterfly and hearts.    Here is another view:



Now remember there is a fabulous prize on offer:


So please go over to The Paper Shelter Challenge and check out the fabulous work by the DT - wow!


Also we still have the DT call on so if you are interested in working with these fabulous images please see the challenge blog for all the details.

One last thing, there is a new fun challenge on The Paper Shelter Facebook Page:


Here is the link to get you to the facebook page with all the details.

Well thank you so much for looking today I will be back tomorrow, take care xx

Gail said...

This is absolutely gorgeous. I've never seen that image...I must be living under a rock. Her hair is strawberry blonde...it's very pretty. BTW, I can't do blonde hair, either, and end up with a redhead to cover my botched try at blonde. I love this card and the dies...those heart dies coming out of the bow are totally heavenly! GREAT card and I love yellows and purples, too! Hugs, Gail
