Start of another month again already!  Today at the ABC Challenge our theme is E is for Everything.  
We're sponsored this time by The Paper Shelter.  This gorgeous image I've used here is The Fairy and the Wizard.

I've coloured this using my favourite colour combination (purple and blue) using ProMarkers, have a closer look - you can see through the fairy's wings :D

The design papers are from Lemoncraft and Maja Design and I've also used some white card stock.  All papers (including the die cuts from Little Darlings and La La Land) have been given a distressed look with antique linen ink from Tim Holtz.  I've also used some rhine stones to add some sparkle to the magic from the wizards wand.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts.

The are some sequins, gems from Hobby Craft and a purple heart sticker from Paperchase.

My silver heart balloon was made from a charm that I got a couple of years ago at a craft fair.  I took the wire off the bottom them added lots of pearl gems to make it look like a string :D

Looking forward to seeing your creations
