#77 Fairy Queen of the Night

















Theme at I ♥ Promarkers - things with wings
Prize Sponsor - Joanna Sheen (£10 voucher)

The image I have chosen to use on this week's DT card is called Fairy Queen from Stamping Dragon Designs. The trouble with some shaped cards though is that they become rather small & difficult to see when transferred to Blogger so you might want to click on it to see it better.  She is quite a sassy fairy with a definite attitude so I didn't think she would appreciate a very 'girly' card being constructed around her. Instead, I set her in front of a full moon with a starry paper from HOTP. Coloured with Promarkers, I took full advantage of those new tiny nibs to get into the narrow wings & wand as well as the craters on the moon. Do you reckon she grants wishes?  Maybe a few more Promarkers & tiny nibs might wing their way to me if she did! LOL. As I was creating a little scene for her with my shaped card, I dotted the twilight sky on the sections to the side with gem stars and a created an eerie, dusky, heavy undergrowth from lots of layers of die cut flowery swirls. I set these into place with Pinflair Glue gel to give yet even more dimension. The super ribbon 'path' running along the bottom, echoing her dress, is from Fantastic Ribbons.



















Hope you like it.
