Sugar Nellie - A Little Bit of Gossip

Hiya! Hope you are all off to a good start with your weekend.  I'm swinging in for a quick share with a card I made for one of my team at work, who asked if I could make a card for a 3 year old who loves fairies.

As you know it's not often that I take on commissions, but I do if they fit in with what I like to create and this one was perfect for me so I said yes. 

This is the card I made. The image is from Sugar Nellie, it's called A Little Bit of Gossip. I have a lot of fairy stamps and images, but their delicate little fairies seemed perfect for a 3 year old and she really suited distress ink colouring too I think.

I used some lovely papers from Lili of the Valley that I had in my drawer, and coloured her to coordinate with them, keeping my colouring very soft and delicate in keeping with the image.

Colours Used: Vintage Photo, Fired Brick, Cracked Pistachio, Shaded Lilac, Mowed Lawn, Forest Moss, Fossilized Amber, Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Festive Berries.

I added Wink of Stella to the fairy's wings as well as the letters of the name and the wings of the butterflies, but as usual I could not get the camera to pick up the lovely sparkle, you can just about spot it on the butterfly wings on the pick below (bottom right corner).

I finished off with some lovely embellishments from The Ribbon Girl

I'm entering this card into the following challenge/s

Right that's all from me, time for coffee I think!

Enjoy your weekend :) xx
