Fairy Fainthearted!...

Good Morning...

This week's challenge at Creative Inspirations is Pastel Shades!

This week's prize is from Bunny Zoe's Crafts and is a 
£10 gift voucher.
Today's DT card for this exciting challenge is made with the gorgeous 
Tiddly Inks Clear Stamp - Fairy Tenderhearted.

I have had this stamp for ages.  I just love this image but she has stayed firmly stashed away because I am such a fainthearted hair colouring coward!  I have to say if it was n't for 
she would probably still be in the 'too difficult' drawer!!

Anyway, I gave myself a talking to and coloured her with Copics.  I used the odd spot of Liquid pearls and some stickles glitter to make her a bit sparkly.  I used a little distress ink pad in Tea Dye to dull down the edge of the white card.

I used quite old Papermania Capsule Papers and quite new Maya Road papers to create mats and layers along with a doily and cheesecloth.  I also used some fairly old (again)! grey hessian ribbon and blue silk ribbon.

Finally, because I love them and that's a good enough reason, I used a punch to make some teeny tiny flowers which I decorated with teeny tiny adhesive pearls and then used to embellish the edge of the image.

The finishing touch was some twine and a button from The Ribbon Girl along with some adhesive pearls.

Here we have her Fairy Tenderhearted made by the fainthearted!

I would say you've done a fantastic job on the hair, lovely shadows and highlights and the pearly dots are really pretty.
She looks so delightful surrounded by those gorgeous teeny little flowers and the cheesecloth and hessian add a beautiful textured background.

This is a real stunner Sue!

Big hugs, Kat xx
