Monochrome shabby fairy

Ching-Chou Kuik does some beautiful images, this one I've used here is a Toadstool Fairy which you can get on Etsy.  This one is a bit different because I decided to do blue hair rather then a "normal" colour to make it a bit more fantasy.  This was the first thing I coloured and I liked it so much I decided do the rest of the image in monochrome to match.  I did this using ProMarkers.

I selected some blue and white flowers to go with the theme which I'd bought from Live & Love Crafts and Wild Orchid Crafts.  I've taken a close up picture of the flowers for you to see.  There's also a tiny silver butterfly bead in this arrangement which I bought off Amazon.  The blue butterfly embellishment is from Lemon Craft.

All the design papers are form Lemon Craft and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley.  The paper sections, sentiment and image have all been distressed and antique linen distress ink from Tom Holtz used on the edges.  In addition the image and sentiment have also had Tim Holtz shaded lilac distress ink added.  The only other think I've added are some pearl self adhesive gems.

Thanks for stopping by today
