CYP Challenge #133 ~ Fairies and Fantasy

 We have a fun theme for our challenge this week at Craft Your Passion Challenges...Fairies and Fantasy. I chose to play with this fabulous image from Delicious Doodles called Fairy Fae. She's a beauty and those butterflies are so sweet.

I coloured Fae and her friends with Prismacolor pencils adding a smear of Stickles to her wings for extra magic. I printed the image twice but only coloured the butterflies on the second image so they could be fussy cut and adhered to the other ones just in the center. This allowed their wings to be free and created additional dimension.
Papers from Graphic 45's Once Upon a Springtime collection were used both for the background and for the semicircular element to the right of Fae. A doodled border and some simple cream matting gave it additional weight. A die cut lacy border with half pearls added was used to trim the left side of the card and add contrast to the vibrant colours. More pearls accent a doodled corner and gold buttons finish off the lower right corner..

Fae is only one of a huge collection of gorgeous images found at Delicious Doodles. To see more inspiration using other images, check out the Craft Your Passion Challenges blog. Fabulous projects by the CYP design team again this week!

Thanks for dropping by to meet Fae. I look forward to seeing what you create for this challenge theme. Bring on the magic!

I am entering this card in the following challenges:

Life is good; so is art.
