This month's challenge at Crafter's Companion is Fairies or Spring is in the Air - think this challenge got changed a couple of times!

I decided to use one of the fairies from the huge range of Flower Fairies.  This particular one is called Marigold.

I was going to do the image black and white with a hint of one colour on the dress to match the design papers but that didn't work out so went for the monochromatic style.  I must admit I struggled to stamp the image as I have trouble stamping some of the faces in detail - doesn't matter what I use it never seems to give me the result I'm hoping for.  Also I have to say that I think the image would have looked better without some of the cheek shading - so I think next time I would adding less.  Should have listened to the saying LESS IS MORE!

Stamps: Crafters Companion - Flower Fairies
Papers used:   My Minds Eye Paper Pad

Copics, Pencils, Stickles
As above plus Co-ordinations
Dies used:
Unsure of the large die
3d Butterflies
