There’s a Fairy in my Tea!

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges.

Our challenge for you today is ‘G is for Girls’ so we want to see creations made for those females in our lives.

Our sponsors for this challenge are The Paper Shelter and Marianne Design.

I’ve used the gorgeous ‘There’s a Fairy in my Tea!’ image from The Paper Shelter for my card today and teamed it with some gorgeous dies from Marianne Design.


I’ve printed my image onto X-Press It Blending Card and coloured with Copic Markers.

The colours I’ve used are as follows:

Skin – E21, E00, E000, E0000, R20

Hair – E47, E44, E42, E40

Yellows – Y15, Y13, Y11

Dark Aquas – BG78, BG75, BG72, BG0000

Greys – C8, C6, C4, C2, C0

Here’s a closer look at the image.
