Saturated Canary - Night Fairy

Hello everyone I hope you are having a lovely week so far. It's time for a new theme over at 
and this time it's Anything Goes. Super easy right?  So no excuse not to enter, because whatever you are working will fit! ;)

I have to admit I always seem to colour the newest digis up a bit later than everyone else, so that by the time I do they're no longer new, and the image I used for this is no different.

A while back I joined in a small way with a lovely project that was on Kickstarter, called
'A Very Fairy Door'

As a reward for my small contribution I received 2 digis, but with Christmas looming and everything else I had planned, it's only recently that I got the chance to colour either of them.

This one is called Night Fairy, so I thought I would go with a deep blues and silver for the stars and make her seem like she was in the night sky with the glow of moonlight surrounding her.

I really rather like the way this turned out.

I decided to echo the stars by cutting some stars out of the dp and some pearlescent card. I used a the Die-namics Pierced Star STAX to cut them. The card shape is made using a Go Kreate XXL set.

I used some old papers from my stash to make the card.

I used some diamante gems to accent my card, lots of glamour dust on the wings and on the star. On the dress and the halo I used my Sakura Gelly Roll pen in Clear Star. This give a lovely sheen and a subtle sparkle, but sadly it's a bit too subtle to show up on camera.

I coloured her with my distress ink markers using:

Vintage Photo, Chipped Sapphire, Blueprint Sketch, Hickory Smoke and some Antique Linen for the 'glow'.

I decorated the inside to echo the front.

I used the following embellishments from The Ribbon Girl:

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:

That's all from me, have fun! :) xx

  2. Oh, just wonderful card!!Love this fairy and yoir colouring! Fab details, as the stitched star with the bloom inside!

  3. Oh, this is such a beautiful card, Linda! Love faeries, stars and the color blue!

  4. A delightful card, in different colours to your usual palette, I like them. The new distress inks are definitely on my wish list this year. I adore the way you have coloured her especially her hair and face, just gorgeous. I hope you get time to relax over the festive period and wish you a Happy New Year.

  5. It usually takes me a while to use my new digis too. But my problem is that I buy them, don't use them immediately and then forget that I even have them. I'm THAT bad! *sigh*
    The first word that came to my mind whenI saw ypou card was "magical". The colours, the crystals and all those stars ... Wow! I also love how you created the glow around the image (with antique linen). Wow! Definitely something I need to remember, because I'd never thought of using that DI for the glow.
    Pure magic!
    Hugs! xx

  6. Wow the glow from her is Awesome love the no frills look of her!
