Butterfly magic

We're back!!!!

Yes we Dressy Girls are back after our summer break and here we are with a new Anything Goes challenge over at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog.

Now this bit of inspiration I've got for you is very unusual for me.  I never colour yellow, it does't even register usually that I've got various yellow shades of pens!  The ones I've used for this are ProMarkers.

So here she is the gorgeous cute Fairy Magic image.  Of course as my fellow Dressy Girl Lucy says you can't have a fairy with out glitter so I dabbed a tiny bit on her wings.
She's been cut out with a fancy lacy Spellbinders die and distressed with Tim Holtz antique linen.  I've also added some tiny pear self adhesive gems on the inside of the die.
The reason behind the yellow colour was the top design paper from First Edition.  I've used a couple of their papers and also some Santoro Gorjuss paper.

Ok what else have I used - some more pearl self adhesive gems, a resin corner, a silver butterfly a yellow rose and some yellow organza ribbon.

You've a couple of weeks to show us what you can make with Wendy's gorgeous images.
IMPORTANT NOTE - if you've not got any All Dressed Up images check out the blog there are some freebies on there :)
