It's really just as well that anything goes today!!

Good morning all

Well, today is anything goes day - and it's obvious because I slept in!!
it's something I haven't done for aaaages! 
Never mind it's Saturday which is good, but when I sleep in I always feel as if someone's stolen a bit of the day from me!!

Today's challenge at 


Anything Goes

Here's my card using the pretty

Fairy Angelica

I used the papers as colour inspiration for this one - so not colours I would have naturally chosen for a fairy.  But I like the finished result- almost Christmas colours,
 I think my brain is still a bit stuck in the festive season!!

It also has a lot of subtle sparkle in real life but you can't really see it here - I used Spectrum noir  Sparkle pens to add a real fairy shimmer to this one -every fairy needs sparkle!

Here's what I did

Image - Fairy Angelica fromWags'n'Whiskers 
Papers - vintage floral from Coture designs
Coloured with Spectrum noir pens and Spectrum noir Sparkle pens
Card -Cordinations from Crafters Companion 
Flowers - lillies from WOC
Butterfly dies - Diesire from Crafters Companion
Oval dies - Sue Wilson for Creative expression (can't remember the collection!)
Also Chloe stem die from Memory box as a leafy effect

Hope you'll come and join us this week at Wags and Whiskers Challenge - after all anything goes!

Gorgeous colour combo, sweet fairy

Kat W said...

The colour combo is really pretty...I think this fairy would look gorgeous in any colour, and the lovely vintage style of your card suits her beautifully.

I know exactly what you mean about sleeping in...sometimes your body just knows it needs a bit extra but I always wake up thinking what else I could have done in that time. I think we all need to slow down a bit sometimes...ha, maybe I'll take my own advice on that one day!

Big hugs, Kat xx
