Sweet Sai The Fairy

Good morning fellow crafters and followers.  Hope your day has started well?  

I was on me hols last week at a lovely self catering cottage in Yeomadon just outside Holsworthy in North Devon.  A lovely relaxing week where Rob did some fishing and I did some colouring, knitting and reading, not all at the same time of course - hee hee.

 First day of October today and we start a new challenge at Creative Ladybirds Creations.

Challenge No 8 is sponsored by

I chose an image from Oddball Art called Sweet Sai The Fairy.

I coloured her in using my copic markers after cutting her out using Brian and the 'direct to cut' facility.  I placed a 1mm seam allowance and then cut a mat in black adding a 2mm seam allowance.

I have also glittered the wings in yellow glitter.

My patterned backing paper was a freebie from one of my tattered lace magazines which I distressed a little around the edges.  I have matted some cream card which has been embossed using a butterfly A4 embossing folder from embossilicious.

The die cut panel I have used was also a freebie die from a tattered lace magazine.  

I finished it off with some tonic nuvo pearl drops in yellow on the two flowers and the large butterflies.

To see more samples from the rest of our design team and to enter your own project into the challenge follow the link HERE.

Thank you for stopping and for any comments you choose to leave.

You take care and hope to see you soon.
