It's Magic!!!

Today I have some inspiration for you with an image from Oddball Art.  The theme this month is SPRING.  This is a mid way reminder so you still have a couple of weeks to enter.  The theme is an easy one and it's helped by the fact that I have a discount code you can use at checkout to get 10% off any item in store if you want to use an Oddball Art digi and haven't got one.  Just quote DTANDREA10 :)  of course you can enter with any image  it doesn't have to be an a oddball one.

So here's my inspiration for you....

I let my imagination run free :)  This new image from Oddball Art by Lizzy - is no 198 and has a long description but if you use my link it will take you straight there.  I loved this image when I first saw it and really wanted to do it especially since I had this idea - so I tried it out - and wow it came out better than I hoped!

I've coloured her in pastels with ProMarkers and used some biro to highlight her hair.  Outside the image I've done some extra swirly bits for the magic and movement through the air.

 The carpet is riding on a magical pink, yellow and glitter  panel which was created using ProMarkers and some DecoArt glitter.  Here's a close up for you

So my idea was to do her floating through the air through some trees.  I didn't want the trees to drown her out though and wanted to keep the card simple so it showcased the beautiful image.  I sketched a few branches at the top left then took to pieces some hortensias (Kort and Godt) I'd got from Live and Love Crafts to create the petals on the branches.  The only other thing I've added are some tiny silver dragonfly beads.

Ok that's me done - now lets see what you can do :)
