A Fairy amongst the Tulips


Can it get any better??? Moved out of my comfort zone to share this one with you because I am still practicing. I am new at coloring with my Spectrum Noir Inks. I found this stamp in my stash and knew it was perfect for a dear fun friend who loves Fairies. And me...need I say more about Tulips? This was just the perfect element. I love how I was able to capture the sheer look of the fairy wings. I had to accentuate that more by adding clear glitter!! I even chalked up the background of the card base as it was all the solid ivory before I got all messy with chalk! I added hearts so I could stamp my sentiment without taking away from my image. If I could master flowers and leaves...I think I would be happy! I used 25 different colors on this one.

Entering this in the following challenges:
