green fairies....

my friend Anne and I do a regular monthly swap - we have a running theme going (remember the numbers) and each take it in turns to choose the theme for the current month.....

One of last months themes was fairies...

here's my take:-

I cut the atc's from white card and then coloured using distress inks (now you'd never guess that would you?) the images on the outsides are from inkadinkadoo and the middle image is unknown....each one was coloured in using watercolour pencils and then highlights added with a gel shimmer pen....I really had trouble parting with this set - might just have to make another set for me !!

Gorgeous, I love the background I so wish i could do that! Is a gel shimmer pen the same as a sakura?

These are lovely - I really like the backgrounds you've made, even though they are bright colours they still look soft and subtle
