Lil' Fairy Flora

I'm still not 100% fighting fit despite nearly a week's worth of antibiotics!  I've have had yet another heavy cold which has left me with a chest infection and nasty acute sinusitis . . . I think I'll have the cold back please : ); still I know that there are many worse off than me.

This card is one that I made a little while back now but didn't get around to posting.  Good thing really as my card making mojo has been under the weather too!!!



She is another Mo's Digital Pencil design.  Baby Fairy Flora.  If you haven't visited Mo's site, I would recommend that you do, here.

 I'm really getting into digitals . . . used to be a bit of a purist, thinking that you must get out your ink pads and blocks but digitals give you so much more flexibility.  I love playing around with them now.

Anyways, back to Fairy Flora, she is coloured with Copic markers.   I coloured her so long back on my lunch break at work that I can't remember the colours that I used, sorry.


I used loads of Stickles Stardust on her wings,  give highlights to her dress and to outline the square cut out she is printed onto.

The adhesive stone swirls were a bargain from "The Works", although they were a beggar to use, lol, my first attempt ended up in the bin.

I finished the card with some Papermania transparent adhesive stones in opposite corners.

The paper is from a bargain bundle that I picked up for just £1 from the Manchester Creative Stitch and Craft Show . . .  I just love my bargains!

Aww I hope you feel alot better soon Julie. I can sympathise with the sinisitus - I had the flu at the end of last year and then got this on top and felt like absolute death - antibiotics seem to take ages to kick in. This is a gorgeous card - love the image and the colours are gorgeous. Hugs, Claire x
