Divas by Design - Things with Wings...

Good morning blogger friends...

This morning I'm here to show you my very first DT card for Divas by Design
I was asked to join the team a couple of weeks ago and I'm so excited. I'm really enjoying the challenge of being on design teams. It kinda focuses my mind. Otherwise I'd just be looking at everyone else's wonderful cards and Youtube videos.

This week our challenge is Winged Things and we are sponsored by Teri over at Delicious Doodles.
If you've not been to visit the Delicious Doodles site I highly recommend that you do. Teri has a wide variety of digi stamps for all tastes at very reasonable prices.

Another Banner, but more elegant!

For this challenge I chose Fairy Fae. She was a joy to colour.

The card has an overall distressed feel about it. I roughed up the edges of the papers using a Tim Holtz distressing tool and inked them with Walnut stain. The papers are by Raspberry Road and are from their Victorian Bliss & Sweetbriar collections.

Copics Used:

Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E00, E11, E13, E15, E18
Wings: BG70, BG72, C0 didn't like the shade so went over with BG90 & BG93
Eyes: BG90, BG93, BG96
Butterflies: YR00, YR02, YR07, YR09, Y11, Y15, Y17, E33, BG90, BG93, BG96, YG67 plus black jellyroll pen for the dots.

The sentiment is made using a stamp I've had for years. It's by Hampton Art Studio 'Diffusion' range.
The large butterflies are made using the Tim Holtz On the Edge Butterflight die and the small butterflies are an EK success punch. The flowers are from my stash and the leaves were made using a DooHickey Leaf die.

I've added a compilation pic just to show some of the detail. 

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

The Crafting Cafe #1 - Anything Goes
Bunny Zoe's  Crafts - Anything Goes
Wild Orchid Crafts - Anything Goes (Gardenias & Cherry Blossom WOC)

I do hope that you can join us this week. I'm looking forward to seeing all the wonderful entries.

Until next time...Happy crafting.

Janine xx
