Sweet Flowers

Hi Bloggers

I hope you are all well and enjoying your crafting whatever it is you are doing
Here in Peterborough,England we have had 5 days of lovely sunshine so I have spent some time gardening with my Mum and then sitting out in the evenings doing some crochet. Even though I'm not a great fan of the sun it has been a nice change to be able to get outside for a bit

Not only do I now have flowers in my garden I have my project for Lemon Shortbread Challenge #15
to share with you which has flowers on it too and the super sweet
digi image

I coloured her with ProMarkers & First Edition Twin Markers, colours below, and Sakura Gelly Roll Violet Sparkle on the dots on her dress. I decided I wanted to give her some special wings so I traced the original digi image wings onto blue vellum, scored the design, cut them out and stuck behind the fairy. I wanted to raise her from the card a little but I had run out of 1mm foam pads so I used a couple of layers of plain card behind her just enough to raise her 1-2mm
The papers are from a pad called 'All Bright Colors' by Craft Sensations and I added paper flowers in the same colours and 'Silver Pearl' Liquid Pearls drops to their centres and the card corners

I hope you like my inspiration for our 15th challenge and that you will come along and join us, as always its 'Anything Goes' and if you use a Lemon Shortbread image you can win 4 images instead of 3
