Fairy In Flight

Good morning everyone, only one more week to go and I'm on holiday yaaah!!!!  I won't be blogging for a couple of weeks, but hopefully will have scheduled posts for my Make it Monday DT.
I have really enjoyed the Olympics too, It was so emotional yesterday to see the final athletes compete, and what a finish with the boxing!! and what about those flash backs of the winners, I was a drained wreck by the end of the day!!..I think they were all winners as they all gave everything they had..well done to team GB!! I'm so proud of them!!  I think all the countries that have competed have worked so hard too!!  It has been a fabulous fortnight...
So onto my card for today's Make it Monday Linky Party 102#, we are being sponsored by the fabulous Digi Doodle store this week and I chose this lovely image called Fairy In Flight.... Afraid I have a bit of a photo overload today.....


A close up of the papers, they really do sparkle beautifully.....the ribbon looks very blue on the photo's but on the card the colours all work together so well..it is more greeny.  Also put stardust stickles around the image, I've seen this on so many images and just love it!!


This view you can see the distressing I used on the papers...it almost made me cry when I took a nail file and roughed up (sorry I mean distressed lol!!)  all sides of that gorgeous paper, then put picket fence distressing ink on top!!  In real life it does look quiet lovely though!  I have used Glamour dust on her wings and stickled all around her with Stardust Stickles, then distressed the edges with aqua chalk ink.


The inside

This image is the first one I did and I used stickles on the wings, and it all went funny...I should have known better, as I've done it before lol!!  So I thought I would decoupage her wings to cover it up, but it wasn't very successful.  I just thought I would show you what she looks like with clouds behind as well, she really does look like she is flying!

The light doesn't do the colours justice as the card is actually a lovely shade of Aqua and Pink..do you like that lovely feather sticking out of the flowers...picked these up at the last Doncaster show...they really are lovely!
I have used First Edition papers called Isabelle, Aqua Bazzill card, lovely lace, ribbon, flowers, and corner are all from Wild Orchid Crafts , coloured her with Prisma Pencils, distressing inks Tim Holtz and the lovely spellbinders die is called Lacy ovals. I also used a Marianne Swirl die.  My corner was originally silver but I painted it with White Acrylic paint...I have tried to buy some Gesso, but they wanted about £30 pounds for a tin, I only wanted to buy a small amount, as it will last me for ages lol!....the acrylic paint seemed to work just as well!

I would like to enter the following challenges


The DigiDoodle Shop is giving away a $10.00 Store Gift Certificate to the lucky random winner!  All you have to do is leave a comment on another entrants card and mention you saw them at MIM...so the more comments you leave the more chances you have of winning.....good luck!!!

My pick for this week was again so difficult so I had to choose two this week because I just couldn't decide so in no particular order.... I chose this gorgeous creation by Darlene....Isn't this just so beautiful...love the colours and the gorgeous Vintage style, do go over to Darlene's blog and take a closer look.



Now isn't this just so cute!!  I had a smile on my face all day.. Tracy is so talented and I can stay on her blog for hours admiring her lovely work... the white at the back is a gorgeous panel that Tracy weaved she has a tutorial on her blog on how to do it....so do pop over and take a look and leave her some love too!!


That's it from me for now guys....hope I've left you with a smile on your face...have a great week....
Take care,
Love and hugs,
Marjorie
