This is one of the latest releases by Mo Manning called Fairy Tea Cup and its just adorable.  This is my second card with this image - I just think its so cute.  Mind you I'm a Coffee drinker not tea!

I coloured the image with copics and then soften with my prisma pencils.  I used a sukura glitter pen for the flourishes and hair.

I paper pierced two of the corners and then used a spica pen over the top.

I kept the design very simple and used gold mirri cardstock as the backing mats.  The green backing papers were from a paper stash I bought some time ago.  I used two smooch spritz inks to create the background on the image - masking the fairy's hair and body.

I embellished using ribbon, bow, petaloo flower, paper flowers and pins.
