Aurora Wings Green Fairy

Sepia Toned Fairy

Hi everyone, I hope that you are all well and are having a fab week. Well spring is 
almost here, the Summer Solstice is just around the corner and then the clocks 
will be going forward, Yippee I'm so pleased and I'm so looking forward to the 
warmer weather and the light nights. I love Spring when everything is bursting 
into life and all the beautiful and colourful Spring blooms, I also love Autumn 
for more or less the same reason, the colours are just stunning. I would  absolutely 
love to visit New England in the Autumn, who knows maybe one day eh.

My post today is a card that I made using one of my favourite Aurora Wings 
images, she's called "Green Fairy" and you can find her HERE I thought I 
would have a go at colouring her up in sepia tones and I love the way she 
turned out, I hope that you do too.

Card Recipe
6x6 white base card, white card, mink card, pale gold satin card, Marianne Anja die, 
Anna Griffin embossing folder, mink silk ribbon, Making Memories glitter deco brad, 
SU crumb cake ink pad, Ranger liquid pearls and various sized flat back pearls.

In this picture you can see where I used the SU crumbe cake ink pad on the Marianne die cut 

And in this picture you may be able to see the pale gold satin card that I used for matting, I thought that this would look better than gold or silver mirri.

I used a selection of Promarkers and Flexmarkers to colour this beautiful Aurora Wings 
image, I then added some liquid pearls and to add some highlights to help lift the image 
I used Gelly Roll.

This picture shows the pretty Anna Griffin embossing folder detail and also the blingy 
Making Memories Glittery Brad in the centre of the hand tied silk bow.
