Fairy Magic

This is my second post of the day - please scroll down to see my first post

Good evening blogging buddies, and here's my second post of the day as promised earlier!

It's new challenge time at All Dressed Up and as usual our theme is Anything Goes with an All Dressed Up Image. Don't have any ADU images? Don't panic, you can find plenty in Wendy's Esty Shop and there are even a few freebies over on the Blog so you can "try before you buy" ;o) Our Random Winner of this challenge gets 3 of Wendy's gorgeous images to play with, and the DT will be choosing their Top 3!

Wendy has very kindly let all the DT girls choose their own image to play with, so here's my inspiration card for you:

I've deliberately kept this card very CAS as it's for my Great Niece who will be 4 next week - I didn't want to chance any small embellishments falling off!

My card recipe is as follows:
  • Card Base - is a pre-made 12.5cm square card base in cream
  • Design Paper & Ribbon Slider - come from the long since retired Strawberry Kisses Papercrafting CD-Rom by Crafter's Companion. They are part of a "card companion" design where you get co-ordinating papers, tags, embellishments etc. All you need to do is cut them out and assemble :o)! I rescaled these in my word processing programme, so they fitted onto my card base nicely.
  • Image - is the gorgeous Fairy Magic by Wendy at All Dressed Up Digital Stamps and she comes with this pretty scene of butterflies and sentiment around her. All I had to do was bring her life using my Spectrum Noir Pens in the listed colours, before cutting her out and mounting her onto my card.
    • Skin - FS2, FS3, FS4, TN4, FS8 (Blush)
    • Hair - CT1, CT4, GB3, GB7
    • Dress & Hair Band - TB1, TB2, TB3
    • Wings - TB1, TB3, Clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Overlay
    • Butterflies - CR7 applied to acetate and picked up with Blender Pen which was used like a brush to give a "watercolour" effect
    • Outline- IG1
    • Grounding - IG1, IG2

I hope I've inspired you to come over to the All Dressed Up Blog and play along with us this month, but if you're in need of further inspiration please go over there and check out the other wonderful creations by my very talented teamies! This challenge will end on 14th November 2016.

Don't forget the Facebook Dressy Girls have their own challenge of Autumn/Halloween running until 31st October 2016 - why not combine your entries for more chances of winning some of Wendy's pretty digis? Some of the newly released images would be perfect to create with ;o) !!!!!!!!

I would like to enter this cutie into the following challenges:

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
