Fairy Power! Challenge 61 - Craft your Passion

Hello everyone, first day back to work for me after having a week off for half term.  Only 7 1/2 weeks until summer break! (not that I'm counting) ;o) 
Well as its Monday that means that its time for another challenge over on 
and our theme this week is an easy one
This week we have multiple sponsor for you 

To join in the fun and be in with a chance to win some crafting goodies pop on over to the challenge blog!

On to my card for this week, I got to use a digital image from "Wags & Whiskers" this was my first time using these images and I now have another company to add to my wish list of stamps I want!
I had such fun colouring a shading this cute fairy, I wanted to try something different and used Polychromos pencils to add some more shading and shadowing.  
Colours I used 
RV32, RV11, RV00, RV00
then Poly's for extra shading.

I love making these circle easel cards as I find you can add so many different elements to the card and doesn't make it look too fussy.

The hearts I cut out using my Cricut, painted with picket fence crackle paint then distressed with Worn Lipstick distress ink and added a pink peg.
I added thin satin ribbon in different colours to the side of the raffia ribbon.  The flower soft I have had for years and ever used (If I'm truthful I had forgotten I had it) for the sprinkles and for an extra embellies. 

I die cut the flower using sheer fabric from an old draw string gift bag then coloured slightly with distress inks. The paper flowers below were made using Tim Holtz alterations flower die, spritzed with water and tattered angels to create that vintaged look.
