Rainbow Fairy

Good morning! Have you seen the totally gorgeous new Fairies that Kristy has drawn up for us this week at Some Odd Girl!  Aren't they just beautiful?!  We had four days of releases over on the blog with four adorable new digi fairies... I hope you got to see them all!

Here's my card using the beautiful and serene looking Rainbow Fairy:

Isn't she just lovely?  I love the expression on her face... so happy creating rainbows!  I thought of my wonderful MIL (April Blackbird) when I was making this card!  I'm sure if AB was a fairy she would be the kind that makes rainbows and hugs. 

I have coloured her with copics and added Stardust Stickles and Glossy Accents to her rainbow and Icicle Stickles to her wings.   The ribbon and twine are from The Ribbon Girl and the button is by Doodlebug.  The little crystal dangle is one I made and the sentiment is from LOTV.  The bling is by Prima and the papers are all from Crate Paper I think.

Here's a close-up:

Copic colours:
Skin: E50, 51, 53, 13 and R20
Hair: YR21, E97, 08, 18
Dress: YG21, 13, 17
Flower: BV00, V12, 15, 17
Rainbow: BV00, V12, Y000, Y11, B000, B01
Red: E32, 35 and E18
Wings: BG0000, 10

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Stampin Sisters in Christ: At least 1 circle, 2 papers and 1 embellishment
There She Goes: Stitching and sewing
The Cutie Pie Challenge blog: Glitter and Bling
The Fashionista Challenge: Winged Things (second entry)

That's it from me for this weekend!  I'll be back on Monday with some Little Miss Muffet Stamps inspiration to kick start your week!

You are the sweetest, sweetest soul. Thank-you for your beautiful, beautiful words (somebody did once tell me that I must have been a Maori in a previous life 'cos I always repeat words that I truly mean from the heart, twice).

You have truly touched my heart (and made my eyes sprinkle).

You know how much I love your work ... each and every single faerie you create makes my soul sing. They are all so very, very beautiful.

Hope you both enjoy your weekend! We're thinking of you and sending you lots of love.

Sydney is beautifully sunny and warm today.

Love and light.
