Birthday Fairy

I knew I had to colour this image as soon as I first saw it on Mo's Digital Pencil.  I made this card for a friend, who as we were best mates as teenagers, and she is very much taller and thinner than me (not hard on either score lol!) always affectionately called me, 'her little fat friend'.  So I thought I'd send her a big fat fairy to wish on for her birthday!

The image is by Mo Manning and she's a delight to colour with all her voluptuous curves!  I coloured her with copics, distressed the edges of the card I printed her onto with Ranger distress inks in weathered wood, and added the swirly details to her dress and wings with sakura glitter pens.

The DP is from Ella Blue by GCD Studios again - I just love this stack.  I distressed the edges after cropping the corners again with weathered wood.  I mounted her onto some blue card stock (with a mirri layer inbetween) and added a couple of rows of ribbons and some blue gems for added sparkle. 


I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

ABC Challenge - M is for Magic well fairies are definately magical!

Cute Card Thursday - 1, 2, 3 Recipe - I have one image, 2 ribbons and 3 layers of paper.

Flutterby Wednesday Challenge - Open Week - just has to contain a butterfly, fairy or angel.  :-)
