Summer Fairy at Dies to Die for

Good morning and Happy Tuesday to you! I'm here with my Tuesday post for Dies to Die for.  If you popped in on me yesterday, my creation today is just about as different as you can get.  It's not very often that I use really bright colours, but these papers just cry out to be used and hey, she's called Summer Fairy after all. Besides, the last time I used her I coloured her in black & white with just a hint of pink, so it was nice to do her in colours this time.

The papers are a mix of 2 different MME pads, links to products can be found at the end of my post as always. The quality of these papers is lovely to work with.

I coloured her with Copics which are think are the best choice for bright colours and decided to get funky with her hair.  Her hair is absolutely wonderful to colour up, such fun!

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E11, R20, R11
Hair: BG10, BG11, BG23, BG57, BG18
Clothing: YR20, YR23, YR24
Wings: YR20, YR23, R11, R12, R20, BG 10, BG11, BG23

I didn't over embellish as the papers were bright and busy, just a few flowers and some MME brads in the corners. I finished off with a bow from a scrap of ribbon from my scraps box and popped a little Prima bling on the top. The sentiment is from Whimsy and is cut with a matching die. Lastly I added a flurry of tiny butterflies cut with a Memory Box die.

I decorated the inside as usual with papers to complement the front.

Well that's all from me today, don't forget to sign up for my blog candy here if you haven't already, there's just over 2 weeks now till I draw a winner, and I'll see you all next time.

Enjoy your day! : ) x x
