Hey Everyone! How are you all? Hope you're all keeping happy & well. It's been pretty rain drenched AGAIN in my little part of the UK today, so my little boy & I have been doing a spot of crafting together ..... lots of chattering, colouring, gluing and making LOADS of mess in my craft room!! Love it :)
Today I'm sharing a little gift bag, which I bought from The Range and which I prettied up using the most beautiful little elf fairy, Shaylee. She is another one of the gorgeous digital images created by the super talented Mi Ran. You can find loads of inspiration on her blog, art by miran, and she has also started up a brand new challenge page which is holding a DT Call.
I coloured up this little beauty, along with the background, with Copics. I think it's only fair that I don't list the colours as I would be here all day ...... I used loads lol.
A little close up for you all ...... hasn't she got the most exquisite little face?! Her beautiful wings have been coloured with copics and a liberal amount of glitter added to make them super sparkly :) It's been a while since I attempted sky, but hey, at least it's a blue one (unlike ours today). I added some Fluffy Stuff from Joanna Sheen for the clouds! It's fabulous!! You pop it where you want, heat emboss it and it fluffs up!!
The papers are a mixture of Maja Design & LOTV. I distressed the edges of both, along with the image, and matted onto cheesecloth to add more texture. My floral display is using a mixture of flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and the Hobby House. The Maja Design paper, berries & cheesecloth are all from Live & Love Crafts. The butterfly spray die is a Signature Die by Joanna Sheen. I have to say, these dies are amazing and cut so beautifully! I die-cut it three times; one for the bottom layer, again to add a 3D effect onto the spray of each individual butterfly and lastly to add the little flutterings around the card. I frantaged them all to add more texture & sparkle.
