Good morning all, well what can I say the post's are still few and far between due to no real improvement with my health so please bear with me whilst it sort's itself out.
Anyhow, it is time for another challenge at Sparkles Monthly and this month we are challenging you to 'Fairies & Butterflies', we want to see them both in some form. Our sponsor this month is the wonderful Lili Of The Valley who are offering a £10 gift voucher for one lucky winner.
For my card I chose these My Minds Eye papers because of the butterflies and they are in colours that I would normally avoid but I actually had fun with them. I guess it is good to be out of our comfort zone at times, because of my back and such I coloured this adorable Elisabeth Bell image over a whole week! and each section I coloured I kept thinking I'm not sure about these colours but I can't possibly start again lol By the end I was glad I had stuck with it, had it of been coloured under normal circumstances it would of gone in the bin after just colouring the flower without a second thought so I guess my health was actually a positive in this case lol. Enough of the rambling, I added glamour dust to her fairy wings after lightly colouring. The bobble trim is also from My Mind's Eye, it was a kit I had a couple of years ago but cannot remember the name of and then the white ribbon was in my stash.
