Pollycraft Monday 126: Chill Out

Hello world!  It's me.  Sorry I have been quiet lately... I'm still on holiday.  We are now in Sydney staying with family and we had our niece's 2nd birthday yesterday!  It was a lovely day and the weather was beautiful (apparently for the first time this summer in Sydney!)!

Today we have a new challenge at Pollycraft chosen by the lovely Anita... she chose....

Chill Out

We would like to see what Chilling out means to you... is it winter?  or relaxing? or cool colours?  Our sponsor this week is My Mum's Craft Shop and they are offering the winner a £10 voucher to spend in store.

Head on over to the Pollycraft Challenge blog to check out the fabulous inspiration from my teamies.  I must admit I was totally stumped by this one for a while... here's what I eventually came up with:

This lovely fairy image is called Lilybean Fairy - Clover I believe.  I have coloured her with copics (see details below).  The papers are from Crate Paper and the ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl.  The charm is from Da Wanda and the chipboard dragonfly is from Make it Crafty.    The pearl brad is from My Mind's Eye.  

Here is a close-up of the fairy:

And here are the copics I used:

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
The Crafty Pad #156: Fresh Spring Colours
Stampalot Challenge: In the Garden
The Poodles Parlour: Anything Goes

We hope you can join us!
