Beauty and the Beast
That's what I have named the image, but I thought of others.
The image is from the pen of Phee McFaddell. The paper from Crafty Chaos. The colour choices were from the palette over at Colour Q
The sketch is from Midnight Madness MMSC#96.
The image is coloured with watered DI with some added watered down shimmer paints on the fairy and flowers. I used a LOTV template for the shape. No nesties live here :( You can hopefully see the shimmer here on the dress.
A lot of use from an MS corner punch to add interest to the corners etc. and a couple of butterflies lightly dusted with shimmer powder and stickles down the body.
The green CS is pearlised so the light reflects and the true colour is difficult to capture. This was layered with white on top of a jade green with the main panel layered onto baby blue. The same as the card base.
The added detail is a thin ribbon of lace with a pleated teal satin ribbon and sewn on pearls. A couple of hand made flowers using some of the left over purple chiffon from my wedding dress with a little pearl sewn on. LOTV sentiment to finish off.
