Cold & wet again

It's really not nice today here in Scotland, pity my husband started working outdoors this week - it's probably been the wettest week here since it stopped snowing! I, however, have been stuck indoors with only evening shifts at the library so what's a girl to do but craft?!

Today's card is again using fresh springlike colours and follows the sketch at Papertake Weekly. I was lucky enough to win a few Softpencil images a couple of weeks ago and this one Butterfairy is my favourite of the bunch. I coloured her with Promarkers and Sakura glitter pens then used a waterbrush to spread the shimmer around on her dress and wings. I added some doodles to the left side of the lilac paper and also doodled on her dress and added a little more glitter with Stickles.
The backing paper is K&Co Sparkly Sweet, the flowers are Primas and I added sticky backed gems for extra sparkle.

The challenges I'm entering:
Papertake Weekly - sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Spring with glimmer
Creative Cottage - Sparkles
Stamp Something - Doodle Somethings
Totally Gorjuss - Ribbon
One Stop Craft - Let it Shine
Crazy 4 Challenges - Spring
Crafty Cardmakers - Spring into Spring
